Reading First Scandal Moves Up The Media Food Chain

ABC News' Brian Ross has been tracking the Reading First thing online for a while now at his website, The Blotter, but it wasn't until last night that the nightly broadcast jumped into the fray with a segment about how Reading First benefited a bush benefactor, Randy Best of Voyager, which sold for $360M. You can read about it and watch the segment online. It includes Slavin and Cindy Cupp, whose programs were excluded, and an interview with Cong. Miller. Over-simplified? Sure. Still not the lead story? Of course not. But it's another step up the media food chain for the scandal. Plus which, now we know that Slavin's brother works in broadcast news.
