Is Kyoto protocol a Bust??? Today, Tony Blair admitted it at the Clinton Global Initiative. If you google it, not one MSM outlet covered this bit of news from the Clinton conference. Maybe it never happened. You know. Kind of like the saying that goes something like "when a tree falls in a forest and there's no one around to hear it, does it make a sound"? Except now it's " if a politician admits a major liberal policy is a failure but no one covers it, did the politician really say it"?
Meanwhile, THIS is somehow newsworthy.
Oh, and before I forget, there's this little exchange from Nightline last night after Bush's speech. The reporters questions were very leading, and he seemed desperate to find someone who blamed Bush for the Katrina aftermath. Not that there isn't room for criticism aimed at FEMA and Bush, that's a healthy process and can lead to better disaster relief efforts in the future. But soo many still want to paint this as solely as a Bush failure, when it seems a better example of what happens when state and local governments don't communicate or cooperate with each other, don't prepare well for probable disasters, and / or don't have competent leaders.
UPDATE: It's Monday. Still no confirmation that T. Blair made a sound.
