NOTE on Bush's Press Conference.

We mentioned in a previous post how the President continues to dodge the questions on Iraq. (Even simple ones, like 'Why exactly did we go to war?' for instance) but one positive thing is that at least the questions are asked, and that's very healthy!
By watching this other extract from MSNBC (via Thuthout.com) , I was thinking how much I wish the French journalists asked their questions in a similar tone to Chirac and other political leaders. Their deferential tone is annoying and not so healthy.

BTW, I'm not the only to say this:
Always deferential to power, be it political, economic or unionized, French dailies have never really undertaken much investigative journalism. (Carte de Presse)
This may also be why the French want to revolt and take the street! The frustration....
