Bush slams CBS

Bush slams CBS

I almost forgot one of my favorite exchanges during Wednesday’s Bush v. Kerry debate. Kerry is asked to respond to accusations about his health care plans and he says:

Well, two leading national news networks have both said the president’s characterization of my health-care plan is incorrect. One called it fiction. The other called it untrue.

Bush’s reply was hilarious as he sent along this zinger to CBS’ Bob Schieffer who was the moderator:

In all due respect, I’m not so sure it’s credible to quote leading news organizations about—oh, never mind.

In case you didn’t get it, he was referring to the faked memos trumpeted by CBS about the president’s National Guard service. Ouch!

It’s pretty interesting that the president had no compunction about sending a zinger against the news media in this highly visible, nationally televised debate. He probably knows that many Americans don’t trust the mainstream media and he was reminding them why.
