New World of Communication - Lost Credibility

11:50 … [Helen], How does one really report in an administration that is in effect is dedicated to giving relatively little out and to spinning what it does give out? Orville Schell

Will I think that it is very difficult, especially when everything they have said practically, now, in terms of a preemptive war evading Iraq without provocation.  Everything has come home to roost so quickly, because this is a new world of communication. Everyone is wired. Everyone is on camera. And it is very little room, running room for really being that deceptive. Helen Thomas

Accountability - Getting the Truth, 
Root Causes of 911? 

15:27… It is very clear that this administration did not want to the root causes of terrorism. What is terrorism? Why? We were the most beloved.  We had a halo. We were on a pedestal. And then all of a sudden we are hated. And no one wants to find out why? The president has tried to kill major investigations of getting to the root causes of this – Bin Laden, the whole phenomena. There is something ongoing now but it is very slow mail.  To get to the truth, I mean how can you solve a problem unless you know the cause. Helen Thomas  ---- The Bush White House: How Covering the Beat has Changed  video -
