Mercedes Schneider: The “Friends of Betsy DeVos” is One PR Man

Diane Ravitch's blog

Mercedes Schneider noticed a strange phenomenon: whenever a news reporter went in search of a friendly comment about Betsy DeVos, for balance, the quote almost always came from the same person: Ed Patru, speaking on behalf of “Friends of Betsy DeVos.”

She he searched the Internet but could find no such organization. She searched for Mr. Patru and discovered he is a paid PR guy.

Ed Patru is the Friends of Betsy DeVos. Does she have any friends who are not paid to be her friend? We.. there’s Campbell Brown, but she gets DeVos money too.
