Olbermann Says to Bush: "Have You no Sense of Decency, Sir?"
Here's Olbermann on Bush's attempt on Tuesday to make people afraid of the media:
The President and the Vice President and others have often attacked freedom of speech, and freedom of dissent, and freedom of the press.Here's the YouTube version:
Now, Mr. Bush has signaled that his unparalleled and unprincipled attack on reporting has a new and venomous side angle:
The attempt to link, by the simple expediency of one word — "media" — the honest, patriotic, and indeed vital questions and questioning from American reporters, with the evil of Al-Qaeda propaganda.
That linkage is more than just indefensible. It is un-American.
Mr. Bush and his colleagues have led us before to such waters. We will not drink again.
And you can go to Olbermann's blog if you would like to read the whole thing. In an age of corporate broadcast media and "stenographer" newspaper reporters, I am so glad we have Keith Olbermann.
