The following exchange between New York Times reporter Elisabeth Bumiller and President Bush (covered at Weekly Standard) tells you everything you need to know about media bias:
She began: “Paul Wolfowitz, who was the-a chief architect of one of the most unpopular wars in our history-
Bush interrupted: “That’s an interesting start.”
Bumiller: “Is your choice to be the president of the World Bank. What kind of signal does that send to the rest of the world?”
This is a reporter from the most prestigious media organization in the United States asking the president a question fraught with editorial bias. Bumiller should be ashamed. The NYT should be ashamed. This one small example should be taught in journalism schools (I know, an oxymoron) as a “how not to” lesson in asking questions at a press conference.
