NPR’s Fresh Air has an interesting interview with Helen Thomas today. I missed the first part, but did hear some interesting comments from her near the end. Thomas discussed how Bush avoids answering tough questions by restricting who can ask and not allowing follow up questions. If that doesn’t work, reporters see evidence of his temper. Thomas has not been allowed to ask Bush questions since she asked him a series of questions as to why he does not respect the separation of church and state which he was not prepared to answer.
The audio will be available later today, and I hope to get a transcript in the next few days for the Kerry Reference Library.
