NY Times Carries GOP Water ... Again


The NY Times has a thumbsucker today about alleged overexposure by President Obama in the media. Now, the idea that the President of the United States is someone who tends to make news is never a problem with the media unless its a Democrat but what is even worse is the way the Times frames this story.

But longtime Washington hands warn that saturation coverage can diminish the power of his voice and lose public attention.

Ah-ha! Who are these Washington hands? Political veterans with no political axes to grind, I bet!

“I’m really perplexed. It’s unbelievable,” said Karen Hughes, Mr. Bush’s White House counselor. “They’ve taken his greatest political asset — his gifts as a communicator — and totally diluted them. It’s been especially notable in the last couple weeks.”

Um, what? That’s Karen Hughes, one of the top puppeteers that told Bush what to say and when to say it during his disastrous presidency. Karen Hughes has a mighty unhealthy relationship with the George W. Bush legacy, and it was her who allegedly help ghostwrite Bush’s “autobiography” A Charge To Keep. Surely there’s someone other than a Bushie hack that is concerned over this so-called overexposure.

“It’s a risk of overexposure,” said Joe Trippi, a political consultant.

Ah, well then… But wait!
