Why is the mainstream media afraid of George W. Bush?
Greg Mitchell had a very nice piece in the trade magazine Editor & Publisher about how our mainstream media — an absolute disgrace throughout the Bush administration — is avoiding using the word “impeachment” concerning the Boy in the Bubble’s affronts to our freedom and global image.
