'Media Mash': Networks Celebrate Obama's Birthday, CBS's Smith Lobs Softball in Interview
Bozell appeared on the August 5 edition of Sean Hannity's program for the latest installment of "Media Mash," a look at the media's most egregious bias of the past week. The second topic in last night's segment was this doozy from CBS's Harry Smith:
HARRY SMITH to President Obama: Do you feel sometimes that your administration is not given the credit it deserves?
President OBAMA: Yes.
"You know, this wah-wah whining has got to stop. What they're saying is that the media aren't pro-Obama enough," Bozell observed, adding:
Look, the Obama people have got the political defibrillators out. He's at 41 percent [approval] in the polls. George Bush didn't get this low until the second term after Katrina.... They're in an absolute free-fall. So what do they doing? First they go to "The View," and then they go to Harry Smith. It's a likely progression.
