Bush: “I’m Wise Enough Not to Bash the Media”

Via TVNewser, C-SPAN’s Steve Scully interviewed President Bush today, and asked him for his thoughts on the media’s coverage of Iraq:

Q But do you think the media are doing an adequate job covering the full picture?
THE PRESIDENT: I’m wise enough not to bash the media. I would hope, however, that they would take a good look at, for example, the rest of the country outside of Baghdad and Anbar province — at least the reports I get are people are beginning to live a normal life. If you’re a correspondent in a war zone, it’s a little difficult to travel around the country on a free basis. But, look, I’m not going to complain about the media.

Watch the video of the interview at C-SPAN’s web site.
