"We can and must do better and apologize for this error in judgement"
So says Mr. Harvey Johnson, who is a Deputy Administrator at F-ake-MA.
Poor Mr. Johnson. He had to utter that statement after it was learned that F-ake-MA actually called a fake press conference to discuss the California fires. Now if this isn't a new low for the frat boy and one of his agencies I don't know what is. Like what the fuck is a fake press conference? I mean in a country that supposedly has a free and open press, how can a government agency get away -or even think they can get away-with staging a fake press conference? And I hope the frat boy and his White House doesn't try to distance themselves from this latest incredibly stupid act. Because, as it turns out, they were aware of it, and they were complicit in yet another incompetent act.
But I guess I can't blame the frat boy's peeps for thinking they can get away with this type of shit. When you have had FOX NOISE and other so called news agencies shilling (not the British coin woozie) for you since day one, it's easy to think that you can hold a fake press conference and get away with it.
Thank goodness for real news organizations like the Washington Post; and real reporters like Al Kaman. Mr. Kaman was able to uncover press gate, and he gave us this little gem:
"He was apparently quite familiar with the reporters — in one case, he appears to say 'Mike' and points to a reporter — and was asked an oddly in-house question about 'what it means to have an emergency declaration as opposed to a major disaster declaration' signed by the president. He once again explained smoothly…
'And so I think what you’re really seeing here is the benefit of experience, the benefit of good leadership and the benefit of good partnership,' Johnson said, 'none of which were present in Katrina.' (Wasn’t Michael Chertoff DHS chief then?) Very smooth, very professional. But something didn’t seem right. The reporters were lobbing too many softballs. No one asked about trailers with formaldehyde for those made homeless by the fires. And the media seemed to be giving Johnson all day to wax on and on about FEMA’s greatness."
And to think we were actually starting to think that F-ake-MA had gotten their act together after Katrina. We should have known better. After all, we are talking about George Bush here. And isn't he a fake President?
