Next Up for FEMA -- Fake Death, Dye Hair Blond, and Escape Across the Border

Um-hum....Your government in action. The Washington Post:
The Federal Emergency Management Agency's No. 2 official apologized yesterday for leading a staged news conference Tuesday in which FEMA employees posed as reporters while real reporters listened on a telephone conference line and were barred from asking questions.

[...]

FEMA announced the news conference at its Southwest Washington headquarters about 15 minutes before it was to begin Tuesday afternoon, making it unlikely that reporters could attend. Instead, FEMA set up a telephone conference line so reporters could listen.

In the briefing, parts of which were televised live by cable news channels, Johnson stood behind a lectern, called on questioners who did not disclose that they were FEMA employees, and gave replies emphasizing that his agency's response to this week's California wildfires was far better than its response to Hurricane Katrina in August 2005.
Wonderful stuff. I say...Give them more funding!!! Who know what other wacky stunts they will come up with next. It's like a variety show masked as a federal agency. Brilliant idea!
