This in from Drudge:
“President Bush, for the first time, is hailing the rise of the alternative media and the decline of the mainstream media, which he now says ‘conspired’ to harm him with forged documents.”
Bush made his remarks to writer Bill Sammon, whose new book “Strategery: How George W. Bush Is Defeating Terrorists, Outwitting Democrats, and Confounding the Mainstream Media” is currently No. 4 on the Amazon best-seller list.
Here’s more from Drudge:
“‘I find it interesting that the old way of gathering the news is slowly but surely losing market share,” Bush said in an exclusive interview for….’Stratergy.’ ‘It’s interesting to watch these media conglomerates try to deal with the realities of a new kind of world.”…
“For example, journalist Dan Rather left the anchor chair at CBS News after Internet reporters revealed he had used forged documents to criticize Bush’s military record in September 2004. The forgeries, which Bush now calls a conspiracy, ended up helping his reelection campaign, he acknowledged in the Oval Office interview.”
As a blogstress, I love it! And I also like this from Karl Rove:
“Rove said Rather’s eagerness to broadcast obviously forged documents proves he is ‘no serious reporter.’ As for Rather’s insistence, to this day, that the documents are real, Rove said: “That’s really bias.”
We here at InkWell have known for a long time that the Mainstream Media’s control over the news has been broken. But it’s nice to here it from the most powerful man in the land.
