Bush makes media walk a thin line

once again we see how the government has the supreme upper hand in controlling the media. The media no matter how much leway they have still is controlled by the government in the long run. Bush made the reporters look like sheep and he was their herder so that it appeared that he had some type of power over them and they would realize that. He also had a list in which he knew who to call on so that the questions would be some what regulated. This was an extrememly smart move because when you are trying to gain the respect of the public you really only want certain questions asked and by having this regulated list he knew that only the right questions would be asked. This was another way of regulating the press and it was a brilliant move by bush.
