I'm no George W. Bush supporter, But this is wrong.
"CBS Airs Fake George W. Bush Cover Mocking ‘Decision Points’
When CBS News aired a special on book covers this past Sunday, not many took notice. That is until George W. Bush’s new book “Decision Points” popped up on the screen. That’s because the cover the network showed was not only the wrong one, but it was also mocking the former president.
The cover is supposed to look like this:
Simple. Harmless. But that’s not what aired. Here’s the cover that flashed across the screen:
Yes, you’re reading that right. CBS aired a Bush book cover that says, “Desision Points: How I Managed to Go Eight Years without Making One Good Decision.” CBS has since backpedaled, saying it was an unintentional mistake:
“Good catch: it’s a mistake no one could see because you’d have to freeze the frame to notice it. Another cautionary tale about the risks of the internet age – clearly, we have to be more careful when downloading material.”
According to Newsday, a production assistant made the mistake because of deadline pressure and pulled the image off the internet. The picture seems to have originated on the satirical website “Drudge Retort,” although some outlets have confused it as originating from the the actual website Drudge Report.
CBS has since removed the video showing the gaffe."
I'm a HUGE supporter of our Constitutional Rights, But this is JUST WRONG. Period. And I am sick of the BIAS that the mainstream news shows. If say Fox News put a split second picture of Obama, with a demeaning subtitle on it, it would be a major news event. I've posted before about how 'W', as a man, has been misjudged.
This is a DISGRACE!! CBS should be fined and since 'W' is a private citizen now, he should demand a FORMAL apology. On the air. Primetime.
Anyone remember the Air Guard Memo? What Network was used that to launch that attack? Oh...CBS....
And CBS defended themselves by saying no one would see it without freeze frame. Evidently they were WRONG. Bush was far from perfect and there were more mistakes made on his watch as there are in any administration, but blaming him for everything got old ages ago. Get off it already.
What the hell are they teaching in journalism school now?!!!
This is just abuse of a Constitutional Right for a political agenda.
Enough for now,
