From Our Advertisers The ruling by the Government Accountability Office, which opened its investigation after a report on the agency’s practices in The New York Times, drew a bright line for federal agencies experimenting with social media about the perils of going too far to push a cause. Federal laws prohibit agencies from engaging in lobbying and … Continue reading E.P.A. Broke Law With Social Media Push for Water Rule, Auditor Finds 12-14-2015
