Halperin: Media Cutting Obama Slack

by Eliana Johnson

“One of the big critiques of conservatives of the media this week is there hasn’t been enough scrutiny of the President and his conduct around all this. I think that’s absolutely fair and right to point out. Although, if you look at George Bush after 9/11, a much bigger crisis obviously, but the press wasn’t inclined, and Democrats and Republicans weren’t inclined, he made plenty of mistakes. In times of a national security crisis there’s a tendency to cut the president some slack.”
