If it works for BushCo, then it must work for Ahhhhnold

Faux news videos paid for by the people of California, courtesy of Ahnold. And, pray, what crap are they trying to sell?
Using taxpayer money, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's administration has sent television stations statewide a mock news story extolling a proposal that would benefit political boosters in the business community by ending mandatory lunch breaks for many hourly workers.

The tape looks like a news report and is narrated by a former television reporter who now works for the state. But unlike an actual news report, it does not provide views critical of the proposed changes. Democrats have denounced it as propaganda. Snippets aired on as many as 18 stations earlier this month, the administration said.
It's called saying 'hasta la vista' to a mandatory lunchhour.
