Subject: Federal Government
Source: The Washington Monthly
Date: January/February


"All too often the press, instead of exposing [Washington] make-believe, is part of the show," The Washington Monthly reports. "It dutifully covers the apparent action... rather than finding out how the programs are executed and the legislation is implemented or what the government is not doing about crucial problems." Other topics covered in the article include access to lobbyists, impenetrable bureaucracy, creeping pay grades and lack of accountability as the article seeks to explain how Washington really works.
