The Soft Bigotry of Low Expectations

First Lady reveals: President Bush reads newspapers!
Mrs. Bush said that despite what her husband says, he does read the newspapers. She said she directs his attention to articles he might need to see.

"I don't mark them. We both read the newspapers in the morning, and I will point out different things, or he'll point out different things," she said.

When Bush says he does not read the newspapers, what he means is he does not read the White House press corps' coverage of his events because "he's been to those events, he knows what's happened at them."

And, chuckling, she said, "he doesn't read your stories because he doesn't want to be mad at the pool that's traveling with him."
Now whose going to tell Mrs. Bush that this doesn't count as a newspaper?
