    QUESTION: As Commander-In-Chief, what was the President's reaction to television's Bill Maher, in his announcement that members of our Armed Forces who deal with missiles are cowards, while the armed terrorists who killed 6,000 unarmed are not cowards, for which Maher was briefly moved off a Washington television station?

    MR. FLEISCHER: I have not discussed it with the President, one. I have --

    QUESTION: Surely, as a --

    MR. FLEISCHER: I'm getting there.

    QUESTION: Surely as Commander, he was enraged at that, wasn't he?

    MR. FLEISCHER: I'm getting there, Les.

    QUESTION: Okay.

    MR. FLEISCHER: I'm aware of the press reports about what he said. I have not seen the actual transcript of the show itself. But assuming the press reports are right, it's a terrible thing to say, and it unfortunate. And that's why -- there was an earlier question about has the President said anything to people in his own party -- they're reminders to all Americans that they need to watch what they say, watch what they do. This is not a time for remarks like that; there never is.

    Show me bush's lips critisizing a media person.


    As far as your quote IT, it does not equal what Obama and his minions said about Rush.... In fact your quote shows how they tried to avoid lowering themselves. Thanks for that!

    The Dixie Chicks are musicians first off, not journalists, this thread is about if we recall Bush attacking journalists. Do you remember Bush attacking Journalists or not?
    The fail is strong with you!
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Now, this is not really an official mod warning. I did this to illustrate how that sounds coming from an authority. It certainly sounds like a warning/threat. Obama made one comment about Congressional conservatives listening to Rush. There was no threat from his evil "minions".

    Yes. He never spoke with the President about it.
    His chief of staff wasn't running around colluding with the press about it.

    It was an issue of Maher's own making, a question from the press about a specific comedien, and answered in context.

    No long running issue was made of it past that point.

    Bush didn't single out Maher... like that gnat on a horse's ass would concern the President.

    I remember the incident well.
    I sent ABC an email asking them to keep Maher... as he was a great service and I believe reflected accurately the overall sentiment at ABC.

    Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales raised the possibility yesterday that New York Times journalists could be prosecuted for publishing classified information based on the outcome of the criminal investigation underway into leaks to the Times of data about the National Security Agency's surveillance of terrorist-related calls between the United States and abroad.
