Bush & Iraq Are Wonderful - The Love Fest Continues On Studio B

Reported by Donna - June 13, 2006

I reported earlier on the love fest of how wonderful George Bush is after secretly visiting Iraq, conveniently timed for soon after Al Zarqawi's death. Well today on Studio B with Shepard Smith, the love fest continued.

Apparently Secretary of State, Condoleeza Rice and Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld had been reporting to the Senate about Iraq.

The Republicans were all smiles, smacking each other on the back and looking like they came from a party as they came before the camera. Frist and Warner were all smiles as were several other Republican Senators. Senator Warner said that Secretary Rice, Rumsfeld and the head of the Joint Chiefs had answered all of their questions and they were quite happy with the president's important mission to thank the troops for taking care of Zarqawi.

Condoleeza Rice said how great it was to have a joint cabinet meeting from Camp David to the cabinet in Iraq. She also said how this briefing was going to help Iraq.

A few minutes later they broke into regular programming to bring Rumsfeld in who said that as the president said, we are there to complete the mission. That the Iraqi Security Forces are increasing and strengthening their forces and as they do we would be stepping down. Of course when asked the all important question about troop withdrawal, he gave the standard, "the conditions on the ground witll determine it." Then he bragged that the Iraqi Security Forces were bigger than the U.S. forcess.

Comments: Just like on Fox News Live, Studio B stuck with the one sided story - only the Republicans side. They seemed to be trying to ride the coattails of the death of Zarqawi as if, perhaps, the mission was getting accomplished? Without a Democrat to be seen the Fair & Balanced station continued it's bias reporting with no shame. At this point with the polls so low and with Rove being off the hook on the Plame case, this seemed tailored to a t by Rove. Well orchestrated, no balance.
