I've been sick. So while staring at the tv this morning, a press conference came on. It was the Presidents press secretary. The White House press core demonstrated why there are so many more, horses rear ends in this country, than there are horses.
Upset that the Vice President had hit a friend with birdshot, and did not stop to call the press before rendering aid, the press started yelling things like:
"Isn't this similar to when the levees broke in New Orleans?" (the President supposedly didn't know about them soon enough, like he could have done anything about it in the middle of a category 4 hurricane)
They also yelled in beligerent voices about the hunting accident, "WHAT DID THE PRESIDENT KNOW AND WHEN DID HE KNOW IT?'
Or "When did the administration decide to try to coverup the shooting"?
One fellow stuck his jaw out and pointed an accusing finger and yelled "Has the Vice President even been charged in this shooting"?
I shut the tv off at this question. "HAS THERE BEEN ANY TALK OF THE PRESIDENT AND THE VICE PRESIDENT RESIGNING BECAUSE OF THIS?"
Although the Press Secretary began laughing at this question, I didn't. I puked again.
I would like to have heard just one question about the condition of the man who was shot.
The outward hatred for this administration by the Washington press, was in plain sight for all to see. This, from a press who are supposed to be unbiased, and reporting news, and not trying to make it up. The three major networks were there along with CNN. You couldn't possibly have watched this news conference and come away thinking that everything you read or watch is suspect. Very suspect. I have never seen a larger group of self important people in my life. The spin on tonights news will be interesting. What will be more interesting will be the editing to make their newspeople look like reasonable thinking people.
Our cherished journalism schools will applaud what went on, instead of feeling the large amount of shame that is due.
