That Liberal Media

So, here are Wolf Blitzer's comments on the role of the media post-9/11.

Kristol: think George Bush gets an easy time from the media?
Maher: I do, I think he gets a, and they said so in that movie Journeys for [sic] George, the guy said, "hey, you know what, he charmed us so we didn't ask him any tough questions."
Blitzer: Well, there's one difference between President Bush and the previous presidents, and we're about to commemorate the second anniversary of 9/11. After 9/11, attitudes have changed towards the President, the President's responsibility, and what this country needs. And I think people are willing to give the President the benefit of the doubt, knowing what happened on 9/11.

From Bill Maher's show.
