Speaking with President Bush

The media has been blasting GW's interview with some of our military personnel in Iraq and calling it a staged event. One of those who were selected to be part of the group to be interviewed is a little "p---ed off " about the medias characterization of the event.

He blogged:

Yesterday, I was chosen to be among a small group of soldiers assigned to the 42ID's Task Force Liberty that would speak to President Bush, our Commander-in-Chief. The interview went well, but I would like to respond to what most of the mass-media has dubbed as, "A Staged Event."

First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share with the President.

We were given an idea as to what topics he may discuss with us, but it's the President of the United States; He will choose which way his conversation with us may go.

We practiced passing the microphone around to one another, so we wouldn't choke someone on live TV. We had an idea as to who we thought should answer what types of questions, unless President Bush called on one of us specifically.

You can read his entire post here.

This is laughable because the medias whole modus operandi in news reporting is staged, as is the case here.

Reporter Michelle Kosinski and her choreographers were caught staging this live report. She was talking about the devastating flood waters in Wayne, NJ and was in a canoe, when unexpectedly two men walked by in front of her; they were only ankle deep in water as they waded past.

I gotta tell ya folks, my disdain for the media grows daily - exponentially. I don't watch televison news anymore; and I haven't for quite some time now. I -- just -- can't -- do -- it.


  • Do they actually sit in their newsrooms and brainstorm ideas for sinking deeper into the muck? They are so absolutely pathetic on such a consistent basis. It's nauseating. I don't blame you for not watching anymore. Neither do I.

  • Indeed Hammer, they are pathetic. There is nothing "newsworthy" about them. They are just one big freeking infomercial for the Democratic party.
