Early morning media criticism

Posted By on Fri, May 12, 2006 at 6:10 AM

The cock has not yet crowed, but our Hempwallace bureau has already reviewed the morning D-G and offered a quick media commentary on its handling of yesterday's Bush outrage of the day.

How entirely predictable that the local daily this morning leads the paper with a statement from Bush denying charges that the paper had yet to report. Instead of leading the paper with the report that Bush's administration had obtained the phone records of tens of millions of Americans, the daily reports that Bush denies his administration is spying on all of us.

How predictable.

How alarming.

How pitiful.

PS -- Call it Blanche Lincoln Day on the Blog. Here's a KUAR report of her expressing concern about this mess.
