The title kind of says it all, huh? Shame on you, American press. I think President Bush belongs in the darkest cell of Guantanamo for what heâ€™s done to our country and the world. But the indignity of not being able to get a routine medical test without the nation knowing what is in your lower bowel is not in the job description.
Please, journalists, I beg of you, start reporting on the gross abuses of presidential power. Write about what our politicians do in their elected office. When their private life is in gross contradiction to their public statements, then write about that too. Stop droning on about candidateâ€™s â€˜likeabilityâ€™ and â€˜charismaâ€™. Tell us what they do in office. Stop worrying about the polls and collecting sound bites. You are all sounding like a supermarket tabloid. We are beginning to wonder if the tabloids are a more reliable source of real news. (Iâ€™m thinking of the â€˜Globeâ€™.)
For godâ€™s sake, give us a reason to keep the press free.
We donâ€™t need to know how many polyps the President has. We just need to know if he is well enough to function in office. That question remains unanswered. Get back to work.
