Now Now, LauraLaura Bush on Larry King:
NEW YORK Intrerviewed with her husband on "Larry King Live" on Thursday night, Laura Bush once again charged that "good polls" for the president never end up on the front page. She also said that she did not trust the polls at all, because polls that reveal the president's low approval rating "are not what we we when we travel around the country." She added: "As I told you before, you don't see good polls on the front page."Did she just, gasp, lie??? Apparently so:
Just for the fun of it, let's scan a list of articles from the New York Times and the Washington Post trumpeting good Bush poll numbers. Every single one of these was featured on the front page:Laura has repeatedly said this, and no one in the media ever challenged her.
What's that about the liberal media again?
