DID BUSH KNOW THE QUESTIONS BEFOREHAND?….Marc Sobel emails to point to this audio report from Nadja Middleton of Free Speech Radio news. In a report about yesterday’s White House fesitivities, she says:

During last night’s press conference, where journalists’ questions had to be pre-approved by the White House, very few, if any, challenging questions were asked of the president.

If this is true, it’s outrageous. And it’s even more outrageous that all the major news outlets would agree to keep it quiet.

I’d sure like to hear some firsthand confirmation of this one way or the other. There’s got to be someone from a major news organization willing to step up to the plate and tell us whether this happened.
