Prez Press Conference: Morning-After

bushpressconf.jpg > Lisa de Moraes: “Thus can it be said that Donald Trump forced the president of the United States to reschedule an address to the nation. Way to go, Donald!” (Her story is a must-read, BTW.)

> NBC dumped out around 8:55pm, as did CBS. The Fox network left the press conference at 9pm. Bush wrapped up at 9:01pm. Perhaps his watch was broken?…

> Bush fielded two questions after NBC and CBS cut away. “In case you missed the questions…they had to do with those trivial, esoteric areas of North Korea and Social Security,” E&P says.

> New York Times: “It was that timing [the first day of sweeps], as much as the White House suggestion that Mr. Bush had no major announcement to make, that gave the networks pause about going live, several executives said.”

> “Fox’s coverage of the Bush speech was great tonight because they put the names of all the reporters asking the president questions on the screen,” an e-mailer said.
