I New It!

White House Communications Director Dan Bartlett, when asked to comment on President Bush’s prime time news conference last week, said the affair was part of the Bush White House’s political propaganda: “In this case, we know what the questions are going to be, and those are the ones we want to answer.” So why do we even make them prime time news? Why do we even bother calling it a press conference. Why isn’t this guy EVER held to the carpet by the “liberal” media? God forbid someone gets on the wrong side of the White House juggernaut and gets locked out of the White House briefing room and all that spoon-fed access. That might mean the reporters would have to leave Pennsylvania Avenue and hit the streets to work a story that might be different than the one they have covered for years. It is probably best they just leave their heads in the sand.
