Bush booed at baseball opening day in St.Louis?
I just listened to KGO's Ray Taliaferro and he said that the applause at Busch Stadium in St Louis was a recording. Can anybody confirm this. It is said that people were jeering and booing Bush at the Cardinals game. Can anybody confirm this?

1. yep
I haven't been on DU much this evening (or a.m.) but I did see a thread about it. Do a search and it will probably turn up.

2. Obviously, none of us would put it past the media
and this admin. to do something like that. Look at the fake news with actors they put out. Also,there is something very fishy about the Dean scream....thought so when I first saw it...I've heard that was a trick that made it seam alot worse than it was.

3. That's right. Dean was using a uni-directional mike that amplified his
yell on TV even though he could barely be heard live in the meeting hall.

Via atrios:

"BACK AT BUSCH: A somewhat hostile crowd complained mightily about the problems the presidential motorcade caused with regular fans trying to get into the park. A Cards employee tipped moi that the team was so concerned about Bush being booed that they piped in fake applause when he strode out to the mound. Lamping flatly denied it. "

That's all it says.

5. The KHITs morning show crew was there
The confirmed the booing, but could not confirm the audio enhanced cheers.

I could only hear cheering on the radio. -- but as I said in another thread, they cheer for Ray Lankford too. I assume sympathy cheers were just the norm of the day.
