Press Corps Pink Slip

Even though most Americans see the bias in main stream media, if Bush did more to counteract the “Michael Moor-ism’s” out there, his job would be much less difficult…

It is hard to argue with success. The president was reelected more comfortably than even his supporters expected. Still, he suffered enormous headaches all year and surely will endure more migraines if he keeps the media team that has so ill-served him.

Bush’s press officers surely are diligent patriots who do the very best they can. That’s the problem. It is hard to identify a recent chief executive who struggled so hard to communicate. True, Bush is no Ronald Reagan. But that does not excuse his press operation. It lacks creativity, responds leisurely to most criticism, and lets muddled perceptions linger rather than correct them by relentlessly deploying facts and comments.
