Bolten, J. B. (n.d.). Use of Government Funds for Video News Releases. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Last month, the Comptroller General circulated a memorandum to Executive Branch departments and agencies purporting to provide guidance from the General Accountability Office (“GAO”) as to how appropriated funds may be used for video news releases (“VNRs”) consistent with legal restrictions on the use of such funds for “publicity or propaganda purposes.” B-304272, Feb. 17, 2005. That guidance conflicts with the views of the Department of Justice’s Office of Legal Counsel (“OLC”), as noted in the attached memorandum from OLC to the general counsels of the Executive Branch. Heads of Executive departments and agencies are reminded that it is OLC (subject to the authority of the Attorney General and the President), and not the GAO, that provides the controlling interpretations of law for the Executive Branch.
