It was not planned.’” Ah, wasn’t he asked the question by Joe Scarborough, the MSNBC talker and former Congressman from Florida, and not Chuck Scarborough, the longtime NYC anchorman at WNBC-TV in NYC?

  • “To celebrate its 11th anniversary, FOX News Sunday (FNS) will debut a new ongoing series, ‘Choosing the President,’ on April 29th. It will consist of in-depth interviews with presidential candidates conducted by FNS moderator Chris Wallace, and will provide an opportunity for candidates to discuss and debate their platforms as they formally announce their candidacy. The premiere segment kicks off this Sunday with an in-depth interview with Senator John McCain (R-AZ) and his wife Cindy McCain. This will be McCain’s first Sunday show interview since announcing his candidacy on Wednesday.”

  • PBS’s Bill Moyers reports, “Four years ago this spring the Bush administration took leave of reality and plunged our country into a war so poorly planned it soon turned into a disaster. The story of how high officials misled the country has been told. But they couldn’t have done it on their own; they needed a compliant press, to pass on their propaganda as news and cheer them on. … Yet the story of how the media bought what the White House was selling has not been told in depth on television. As the war rages into its fifth year, we look back at those months leading up to the invasion, when our press largely surrendered its independence and skepticism to join with our government in marching to war.”
