Bad News? Distract the Messenger!

Hotline on Call reports that the White House has fired off a pair of "Setting the Record Straight" e-mails.

They do that when they disagree with a news report.

In one of the e-mails, the administration takes exception to a CBS News report on Medicare Part D.

In the other, they criticize the New York Times editorial board for ignoring economic improvements.

Now, where else in the past day or so, have we seen the New York Times, CBS News, and the White House all cross paths?

Could it be the New York Times/CBS News Poll showing President Bush at his worst approval rating yet -- and with only Richard Nixon and Jimmy Carter scoring lower approval ratings?

Guess when you can't argue numbers, ya gotta look for something else to complain about. (Hotline)
