Bush held a photo-op with a hand-picked group of seniors at a swanky retirement home -- and it was well covered by the usual suspects.Froomkin points out this was not mentioned in the MSM but was left to NPR.
Julie Rovner reported on NPR's All Things Considered: "The once-a-decade White House Conference on Aging is meeting in Washington this week, with the future of Medicare high on its agenda. Medicare was on President Bush's agenda Tuesday, too. But he skipped the White House conference -- making him the first president not to speak to delegates in the event's half-century history.Thank God for Dan Froomkin, one of the few that can be counted on to bring us the news.

"The White House team handpicked the seniors who met with President Bush at the closed meeting."
