Only ABC?

Only ABC? What's up with that? Seems that the president addressing the nation on the highly debatable war in Iraq would qualify as newsworthy. Yet, this article indicates that only ABC of the four major networks has decided to carry the address. Aren't these the same networks that have been carping about keeping the people informed about the situation in Iraq? In fairness, some may decide late today to carry the address, but ABC is the only network willing to take a stand earlier in the day. Is there anything to this anti-Bush bias in the media theory?

Just a thought.

Is there anything to it? Who cares? Bush is a wanker and no one has to air his spew.

Oh, Senor Loin, you miss the point entirely. It's not a matter of having to "air his spew." The talking heads at the networks have been calling for Dubya to "keep the people informed." It matters not whether one considers him a profound thinker or just someone whose grades were marginally better than his last presidential opponent. He consented to inform the people and the networks pissed backwards.

Well, I was slightly drunk when I wrote the last message. I see your point. Of course, what more is there to say about Iraq that hasn't been said ad nauseum?

I am not going to say whether we are making headway there or not, as I am not there and have no real connection besides what the media spews forth. And I always question that source.

Bush will no doubt keep us "informed" using the same inane jargon and rhetoric that he has used since his first term. Business as usual and blah blah blah.
