A day later, on Friday, the National Labor Relations Board posted what appears to be its first-ever Fact Check that stated the following:
This feature encourages accuracy in the media by correcting common misperceptions and errors of fact when they are brought to our attention.
Google Ads It has been reported that the NLRB spent Agency funds on Google ads. An initial review indicates that the ads were provided at no charge beginning in 2008 by Google. The Agency has decided to discontinue them.
Now that the NLRB has taken it upon itself to correct the record by stating the ads were free from Google, it would be remiss if an acknowledgement that the previous assumptions were wrong.
You see, it was just assumed that an agency of the federal government would not accept services and/or products from a company, let alone a company with a CEO with such a tight relationship with the White House. Never in a million years would it have been guessed that the NLRB was getting its ads for free from Googlethose same type of ads for which the private-sector pays handsomely.
Now, without a law degree (although Holiday Inn Express is like a second home), it is unknown whether a private-sector company like Google is legally allowed to provide free ads to an agency of the federal government, or whether it is permitted for an agency of the federal government to accept free services without violating a certain law (or tow). That would be something for lawyers and, perhaps, Congressional committees to decide.

I was going to get the admin to change the title, but that's just how Redstate misspelled the National Relations Labor, er, National Labor Relations Board.
Thanks for pointing that out. I added nlrb to keywords.
Hiding behind “in the public interest”? PSAs are not uncommon.
Oops - I searched for NLRB and not NRLB so I missed it
What’s the NRLB?......
The National Relative Labor Bureau.
That's who you call to get jobs for all your relatives after you've been elected.
The title of the article on Redstate incorrectly used NRLB, when it should have been NLRB.
