Bush's father complains of news media "hostility"
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President George W. Bush's father accused the news media of "personal animosity" toward his son and said he found the criticism so unrelenting he sometimes talked back to his television set.So it's "unrelenting hostility and personal animosity" when the media reports the facts. The facts are not the media's fault, as Joe Gandleman said so well:
"It's one thing to have an adversarial ... relationship -- hard-hitting journalism -- it's another when the journalists' rhetoric goes beyond skepticism and goes over the line into overt, unrelenting hostility and personal animosity," former President George Bush said.
This administration seems to have more chickens coming home to roost now than one of Frank Purdue’s poultry factories.I have to wonder if the corporate giants who control the media are getting very nervous about a "decider" or "decision maker" who seems to make all the wrong decisions. No George H.W., it's not the media's fault.
Very little that’s coming out about the adminsitration is positive and it isn’t a case of bad media. The Libby trial and Rove involvement? It entails credibility. President George Bush’s newest assertion of himself as “the decision maker”? A seemingly innocent comment, yet it solidifies a view taking hold among many Americans in both parties that the administation disparages Congressional “advise and consent” and believes it’s the “boss” and Congress is iits underling.
