Fineman Speaks the Truth

CHRIS MATTHEWS, host: Howard, did the Republicans have this thing completely knocked in this town? Is George Bush completely in control of Washington right now?

Mr. HOWARD FINEMAN (Chief Political Correspondent, Newsweek): Well, the interesting thing, Chris, is he's not just in control of the political apparatus, he's in control of the press, he's in control of the sort of social atmosphere of the city in a way that I haven't seen in quite some time.
