Will the Media Stand For This?

Posted by on September 7 at 12:12 PM

The Bush administration is tossing the media out of New Orleans - banning photos of the dead, closing the borders of the city to TV trucks and news reporters. This is outrageous. Will CNN sue? Will the NYT sue? Will someone challenge this appalling assault on the First Amendment?

Bush doesn’t like the photos or news stories coming out of New Orleans, so he’s going to prevent the news media from doing their job. We got a taste last week of what it looks like when the MSM gets off its knees and stops felating the Bush administration. Will they drop back to their knees now? Or will they send reporters in by boat and by backroads to get the story regardless? Will they take the lying, corrupt, incompetent Bush administration to court?

Don’t just kneel there, MSM, DO SOMETHING.
