Michael Medved’s Oval Office Visit

Michael Medved pens an account of his Friday meeting with President Bush and a handful of other talk show hosts.  It was an “off the record” conversation, but the rules of that convention still allow for a very interesting column. 

The president may want to consider filming such sit-downs and releasing the tape as his meeting with, say, Matt Lauer or others are often produced for broadcast.  Keeping the conversations with broadcast journalists from radio who are generally supportive of his positions-off-the-record while giving full scope to our colleagues from MSM with their agendas that are generally supportive of the Democrats seems needlessly to handicap the persuasive effect of his own views, while at the same time limiting the public’s access to interviews that cover subjects the MSM never touches.  When, for example, was the last time you heard an MSMer ask the president about the reaction in the states to Kelo, the inability of the Senate to live up to the Gang of 14’s commitment to provide up-or-down votes for all but two specified nominees, or the Fed’s direction?
