Bush's LR visit: the media coverage

Posted By on Thu, Aug 31, 2006 at 8:10 PM

Driving home from work this afternoon, I caught a segment on National Public Radio about how the local Arkansas media covered President George W. Bush's visit to Little Rock yesterday.

The angle of the story was that there wasn't much to cover, because his event was not open to the press. The reporter speculates that may have been an indication that Republican gubernatorial candidate Asa Hutchinson wanted to avoid a connection with Bush.

The piece includes a couple of audio clips from KTHV and KATV and some analysis from University of Arkansas professor Hoyt Purvis.
