Revealed: Obama hired media expert to monitor 'negative' coverage of BP oil spill

The definition of malfeasance.
The U.S. government paid an expert $18,000 to assess whether news stories about the Gulf oil spill were positive or negative for the Obama administration, it was revealed today.

And it awarded a $216,625 no-bid contract for a survey of seabirds to an environmental group that has criticised what it calls the 'extreme anti-conservation record' of Sarah Palin.

The contracts were among hundreds revealed by The Associated Press as the government provided the first glimpse of federal spending since the disaster in April.
