A couple of points/corrections on previous posts, forgive me:
- Here’s the exact quote from Russert on how Bush hoped moving the pressers to other cities might lead local reporters to offer “some questions on the theme of the day. Today’s theme was the economy, and how robust it is, in his mind. That did not succeed, based on the questions he was asked.” I missed the “it is” part.
- While Amy Goldstein of the Washington Post never used the L-word to describe “gay marriage” advocates, it should be noted that she did describe how they were mystified since New York is “one of the most liberal states” and reported the state court was perceived to be “relatively left-leaning.” So the ideological labels weren’t totally absent there.
- On Tom DeLay, a colleague pointed out how a reporter could have pushed back at Rahm Emanuel: how is it that it’s unfair for a judge to remove Tom DeLay from the ballot in 2006…but it was okay for a judge to remove Robert Torricelli in the fall of 2002?
