9. I do hope they press it.
I hope they do because the public already understands the concept of press releases. And the Bush Administration will only give the mainstream more time to understand that Bush has been feeding them half-truths.

In addition to Bush, the press is to blame. They're savvy enough to know when they're only being fed half a story and it's their job to get the other half via investigative reporting.

If anything, this experience should tell us exactly where the bottleneck occurred. It occurred when the press was incapable of doing good follow-up questions. They must know that a press release is slanted, and they must know the executive process of approval to see the traps.
