White House Smacksdown NBC

Posted by Ryan on May 19, 2008

White House counsel Ed Gillespie had some tough words for NBC after they disingenuously edited an interview with President Bush which indicated that the President accepted a negative premise on the appeasement issue when the President did not. 

But what I love about the letter sent to NBC is Gillespie’s memory of two years ago when NBC was the first to declare Iraq’s sectarian strife a civil war.  Gillespie’s take: so does NBC still believe Iraq is in a civil war or has that civil war ended? 

Nice!  Way to call ’em on it!  I love how a basic memory and facts really miff the MSM sometimes. I wish Dubya and his crowd had been doing this for seven years rather than so intermittently.

    Quite right. Sadly, the WH should have / could have been doing this on a weekly basis since about 2003. How that looney freak Olbermann gets away with his utterly insane rants his beyond belief.
