It's Not Over, Mr. Williams

USA Today: Pundit Armstrong Williams settles case over promoting education reforms.

Armstrong Williams says the $34,000 he will repay to the U.S. government is a small price to pay to put a 2-year-old punditry scandal behind him.

Is he joking? This isn’t behind him.

Armstrong Williams will always be known as a classic opinion launderer. He took money for promoting government goals in media outlets that weren’t wise to the arrangement.

It was unethical. This settlement doesn’t address that, and if he thinks this salvages even a shred of his reputation, he’s wrong. Again.
