Imperial payments

How many journalists are on the US government payroll? Add another to the list:

"The Associated Press has terminated its relationship with a freelance reporter in Haiti after learning she was working for a U.S. government-sponsored organization.

"The National Endowment for Democracy confirmed Regine Alexandre began working for the organization in October as a 'part-time facilitator' between the NED and Haitian groups.

"The NED describes itself as a private, nonprofit organization that aims to strengthen democratic institutions around the world, but receives funding from the U.S. Congress.

"'AP employees must avoid any behaviour or activities that create a conflict of interest or compromise our ability to report the news fairly and accurately,' said Mike Silverman, the news agency's managing editor."

Pushing propaganda is surely a lucrative business and yet many simply do it for free.

The NED also funds SUMATE the Venezuelan Corporate party that attempted to overthrow President(the elected kind)Chavez.
The NED is a CIA front. When we Americans try to "Endow" others with Democracy Death and Destruction is the usual result.

You might want to add the Lincon Group to that list.
