Fox - Bush on the 'Down Low'

Reported by Ellen - April 7, 2005

On Studio B today, Shepard Smith went to Carl Cameron to report on what the President was up to today. What followed was a confusing report.

Smith said that the whole contingency, the President, his wife, former President's Clinton and Bush, and Condoleeza Rice had met with the heads of the Italian government. Then he said, no that's wrong, it was just the president who met with Italian leaders.

Carl Cameron started off by saying that he wanted to keep a 'very low profile' regarding the President's meetings today. He didn't want to do anything in the 'politics of the day' to interfere with ceremonies for the late Pope.

He then said that the President and the President and Prime Minister of Italy had spoke about the Middle East, Iraq and Afghanistan.

This is where it got confusing. Cameron said that the President met with the President of Italy first at dinner and expressed regret for the death of the Italian Secret Service Agent last month.

Then Cameron said, no, he didn't discuss it with the President of Italy, he had dinner with the Prime Minister and he was 'prepared' to talk about the 'accident' (notice the wordage).

Comment: I'm not sure who the President had dinner with or if he even 'expressed regret over the incident resulting in the death of an Italian Secret Service Agent. I guess the President's meetings were kept on the 'down low' because no one could make sense of Cameron's sloppy ramblings.

Perhaps the next time that the President wants to keep a 'low profile' Fox can come up with someone more coherent than Carl Cameron.
