Will The Media Report The Woodward Story?
Edited on Sun Apr-18-04 07:24 PM by FlashHarry
One would thing they would almost have to, to remain competitive with CBS. Of course, Fox won't, but that's a given.

Secondary question (2 parts) is the Saudi oil scheme the "October surprise?" And, is it effectively quashed now the cat's out of the bag?

1. FOX won't, everybody else will.
No, that wasn't the 'October' suprise, that will be a fake WMD discovery, like so.

Or Osama's corpse.

2. What about Reagan's corpse?
That was one that came to me recently. What if Ronnie's already in the freezer, next to Ted Williams and Walt Disney, only to be thawed out in October?

23. Reminds me of a skit on In Living Colour
A character playing President Jesse Jackson keeps insisting in a speech that he kept his promise to America "to keep hope alive." Then you hear "Thanks For The Memories," and a life-supported Bob Hope is wheeled out!

6. Woodward is just getting started
60 Minutes was just his first shot. Parts of his book get serialized in the Washington Post this week. Woodward will be doing the chat-show circuit and the White House attack dogs (like Condi) will be out saying all sorts of insane things. Clarke, John Dean, and others will be back in the public eye pointing out corroborating evidence. Kerry has gone on Iraq attack and will likely pursue. Congressional and Senatorial Bush doubters from both parties will continue to pile on.

8. Well, he did contravene the Constitution.
If that's not a "high crime," let alone a misdemeanor, I don't know what is.

Should be fantastic! I'm so happy I have Al Franken to give me his take on this.

14. I hear you
I'm so angry I could go for some some Mike Malloy! :) I love his rant 'have I mentioned today how much I hate these people'
I love Air America Radio but I need myself a fix of Mike!

11. Bush is a Crook.
Many of us have known that for a long time, but the $700 million used for a purpose Congress didn't intend may be the clearest example yet.

13. Yes--but they will screw it up
Part One: of course they will. The real question is: will they conveniently forget about it?

Part Deux: See my answer for part one.

16. Hmm. I don't see much in today's Internet headlines.
I wonder if Karl's pulling in some favors this morning.

19. Dead silence
Watched BBC this morning--nothing.
NPR had never heard of the story.
Local ABC affiliate still thinks we're rebuilding Iraq.

22. All over morning TV, nothing in the papers
Not a word about the Woodward book or its contents made its way into either of the two local newspapers I subscribe to (in South Carolina-Bush "territory"), but it was all over the network morning news shows. I pray that this story has legs. . . .
