Why don't Bush's press conferences make the evening news shows?
I don't even see clips at night. The only people who see george are those who are at home during the day watching television.

Is it that the press conferences so un-newsworthy because he keeps repeating the same tired lies?

or

are the networks hiding George's increasingly obvious physical deterioration from the bulk of the American people?

3. Same tired old lines warmed over ad nauseum.
How much can still be considered news?

4. I haven't even seen a picture of him in forever.
What does he look like now? Worse?

And I'm glad they don't show his press conferences, I don't want to see his nasty, lying ass.

5. He's so hated...
He's so hated that he's keeping a low profile until after the elections.

6. The same lies aren't 'news'.
I would change the channel if I saw his chimpy face anyway.

7. I wonder if the fact that he keeps lying over and over IS news.
We're aware of it because we're paying attention. I wonder what the reaction would be if people saw George on their televisions night after night lying to their faces.
