Graham in the news
by Guest Blogger, 9/29/2004
In case you missed it, the Seattle Times has a story today about John Graham, head of the White House's Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs. It is a broad profile of Graham's work in that office. For more details on his history and the "intellectual" underpinnings of his approach to his work in this administration, be sure to check out an excellent analysis put out by Public Citizen when Graham was nominated for the job. PubCit carefully documented a history of Graham taking corporate money and -- surprise! -- generating "scholarship" that tended to support industry interests and, more subtly, producing propaganda (or "risk communications") that spread anti-regulatory messages throughout the mass media.
