Josh Marshall Says Something of Note this post, about the story floating around that Bush either joked about or actually pseudo-seriously recommended bombing Al-Jazeera, back in 2004, during a conversation with Tony Blair:

"Six months, not to mention a year ago, I think there's little reason to believe a paper like the Post would have touched such a story..."

Yes, that seems right. The 2004 election coverage, for example.

"Let's all get together, gang, and maybe we can pull ol' W through! Huzzah! Huzzah!"

The press has grown jaded since then, though. And thank God for that.
