CNN: Pay no attention to the embargoed info on the screen.

Journalism is in a sorry state indeed. Embargoed means just that. You may not say what the President said until the embargo is lifted, in this case 6 p.m.

So follow the video her at precisely 5 p.m. And watch the screen. Kids on the chiron.


It’s just stupid. It’s embargoed Wolf … and I can’t say anything … so pay no attention to the screen below me that says the President admits he screwed up and loses sleep over the economy. This is what hapopens when you put kids in charge of the biz. Oh brother.

    Bwaahaaahaaa!  You know the press has forgotten how to do its job when even a Democrat President can't get them to follow simple directions!

    What possible utility would there be in "embargoing" news until a particular hour, unless you wanted to keep it from as many people as possible, or reveal it at an auspicious time?

    I am sure that, somewhere in Texas, President Bush is laughing his butt off, particularly when he thinks of all of the campaign rhetoric spewed by "the one."

    The interview that Obot had with the overwhelmed and undertalented Katie Couric was interesting in that Obot wanted to make sure that the people (us) did not get the impresion that there were two sets of standards and selecting Daschel was his mistake.

    Katie was so focused on reading her next prepared question, she blew the opportunity for a fantastic follow up question.  Like, if Daschel's tax issues could be considered a set of double standards, how does Geitner get a pas for the same criminal activity.  And then she should have asked, "will you Mr. President appoint a special prosecutor to investigate all members of your cabinet te be certain that no double standard exists"   hhmmmm   Nope, not this bimbo.  CBS is a joke.

      I fully expected Couric to go all "Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct" when she interviewed "the One."  I am sure she had a cigarette afteward….

      My motto: I know BS when I CBS.

    So the liberals aren't scared by the president trying to control the press?  What happened to not trusting the man?  Oh well, I guess it's ok if their socialist president controls the press.  Funny, all the Republicans wanted to keep out of the news was state secrets.  That was bad, but the president messes up big and that can't be stated.  Interesting.
