Libraries Used by Bush for Good News

Librarianship continues to be used as a cover by the Bush administration.The good and trusted work of librarians has been used by Laura Bush to deflect criticism of the current administration.

The Progressive Librarians Guild has stated opposition to ALA's praise of Mrs. Bush:

In issuing awards to Mrs. Bush, ALA becomes party to covering harsh, socially bankrupt policies, which are heartily endorsed by the First Lady. ALA does no good to anyone in providing this whitewash for a corrupt administration.
