"Al-Hurra Payments"

Dafna Linzer and Paul Kiel follow up on their al-Hurra reporting noting that a number of media and political figures have gotten cash money from al-Hurra in exchange for appearing on the network. Now to be fair, a lot of the people who’ve gotten this money (David Corn, say) are hardly administration shills.

But it’s an inherently problematic situation for a government-run entity to be in — it naturally tends to build goodwill and shield the network from much-needed scrutiny.
