How is it that flickr and Fox News have the scoop but not LATimes?

So, I’m browsing Flickr (actually, it’s a feed of the Flickr photos in the LA group) and I see one that mentions the President’s visit.

How is it after reading the front page of the LATimes website several times today, I know nothing about it? (But I do get the whole story of some Laguna Hills folks getting their windshields smashed?)

Oh, but Fox News has it?

  1. Well given that Faux News is an RNC-sponsored organization, it only stands to reason that they’ll have detailed coverage of everything Dear Leader does.

  2. Well given that Faux News is an RNC-sponsored organization…

    Really??? …well that is certainly news to me.

    I must make a note to ask Carl Rove about it at the next VRWC meeting.

  3. I have a sneaking suspicion that most of the media outlets in town dislike Bush so much that they covered his visit, but buried it in favor of vandalism stories (I know of at least 2 today!).

    My argument is it deserves at least #2 status because people should know that the president of our country is in town, whether it is to avoid the traffic or throw tomatoes – whatever.

  4. Ugly American–not literally, but certainly in action, it dutifully plays and amplifies the RNC talking points. If you don’t see it, you’re willfully closing your eyes.
