Tonight on the Henhouse Network -- Your New Consultant, Ms. Fox

The media is supposed to keep an eye on politicians. But a Las Vegas TV station has hired one to serve as their consutlant. Nevada State Sen Barbra Cegavske (R) advises the KVBC newsroom on how to cover what's going on in the legislature. The $3,000 a month the station pays her makes her something of an employee of Sunbelt Communications. The company's owner is interim chancellor of the university system. But Sen Cegavske promises to keep voting on higher education issues -- despite any apparent conflict of interest. (Las Vegas Sun)
