Bush: I Blame the Media

Of course he does. Of course anybody who's actually listening to the media (you know, reading newspapers) would know that the whole 'blame the media' thing is a smoke screen for the mistakes BushCotm made.

Crooks and Liars has the video of NBC's Richard Engel dispelling the notion that the media fails to report on the 'good' that's going on in Iraq:

Gregory: Do we miss the overall story about what'’s going on in Iraq, or does security remain the overall story?

Engel: I think the security problem is the overall story and most Iraqi’s I speak to say-actually most reporters get it wrong-it'’s the situation on the ground is actually worse than the images we project on television.
If you can still be killed while reportion on the 'good' that's going on in Iraq, how good can the situation be?
