How to Inspire (Even More) Fear and Loathing in the Press Room
A little humor is in order:
True Blue Liberal � How to Inspire (Even More) Fear and Loathing in the Press Room:
It's hard not to be somewhat skeptical of the Bush Administrations move to revamp the White House Press Room. Yes, the old one was clearly decrepit and out-of-date, but one cant help but suspect that Karl Rove is already in a super-secret bunker in Bethesda scheming with GOP architects and interior designers about ways to use the new rooms design to further neuter the Washington reporters the administration has so successfully managed, spun, and blamed for the past five-and-a-half years.
Perhaps because there is no shortage of bad news to spin, PR spending has more than doubled under Bush; one can bet that, in designing a new dungeon for the despised press, Rove and co. will be similarly liberal in lavishing taxpayer dollars to make the room as administration-friendly in its design as possible.
