Most of the complaints about the Tim Russert interview with President Bush yesterday seem to center on the lack of followup questions when Bush gave vague, irrelevant, or outright dishonest answers to questions he was asked. Is there any chance that the list of questions had to be vetted in advance by the White House? Why else would Russert roll over and play dead? The Washington Post’s Walter Pincus fact checks Bush on some of his assertions today. The nice thing about the interview is it gives the media a lot more fodder for for comparing things Bush says to things as they actually are, which should yield conditions favorable to those who oppose his reelection.
