Bush Speech: Live On All The Networks

bushjune281.jpg > “In essence this is a new speech in a rhetorical sense, not a policy sense,” FNC’s Carl Cameron told Brit Hume.

> CNN’s Wolf Blitzer and Paula Zahn are anchoring from a cramped perch across the street from the White House.

> The spin starts here: White House communications director Nicole Devenish appeared on MSNBC with Chris Matthews shortly before the speech.

> NBC’s Brian Williams (Rough quote): “On this one-year mark since the transfer of official sovereignty in Iraq, with the dead toll in the war now at 1,700 Americans, and with insurgent attacks averaging 70 a day, the President tonight, in front of an audience of 700 soldiers at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, will talk to the American people about the war.”

bushjune281.jpg > I love how some FReepers believe putting a P.R. speech into context is propaganda: “CNN has not completed a fairly effective if formulaic set of pre-speech programming, intended to twist people’s minds so that their mental filters interpret the President’s speech as bogus,” one person writes…

> A blog commenter says: “Er…I think I’ve heard this record before. Over…and over…and over…again.”
