Media this week, post-Brownie....what do you think?
I realize the tide seems to shift on a daily, even hourly, basis as to how the media, in general, portrays BushCo. We may get much of our news at places online such as this, but the majority of citizens depend on MSM, even if they say they don't believe the news; if they're watching regularly, something is sinking in.

After catching bits and pieces of various MSM shows last night, Brownie's comments about the media overexaggerating the crisis in New Orleans has seemed to spur them to investigate what happened there even MORE - or at least say that, because of various factors, we may never know the truth (hinting that some coverups happened).

Wow, Brownie really is giving Karl and George some headaches, eh? :rofl:

They're still going to go after locals (NO police are in the crosshairs now, it seems) and state in evaluating the chaos....but the feds seemingly even more after Brownie's appearance yesterday.

Do you feel the tide, for the next few days at least, is still in our favor? Do you feel other events of the next few days could hurt BushCo even more? If so, what?

SURELY Fitzgerald is coming out with SOMETHING soon?

:eyes:

1. Prosecutors are facing deadlines on a Delay indictment
and there is the Frist Blind Trust thing.
But Gov. Blanco in in the hot seat today, lets see what happens there.

2. There are more Brownies out there

and I think the MSM may uncover some of them. Hell, David Gregory may do it on his own.

Katrina and now Rita have awakened the media from its long slumber. More and more cronyism and incompetence will be revealed, but I'm not sure how much outrage people or their representatives on Capitol Hill have left.

The Augean stables cover 90,000 square miles at home and 169,000 in Iraq. Who can possibly clean them up?

3. I think the public has already made their judgment of Brownie.
His finger pointing will only serve to piss off people who aren't hardcore Bush dead ender's. When people are stranded on their roof and the water is rising they don't want to hear "It's not my job" from the man in charge of FEMA. It's everybody's job.
