Drudge is reporting that a top ABC producer expressed his disdain for President Bush in an e-mail:
A top producer at ABC NEWS declared “Bush makes me sick” in an email obtained by the DRUDGE REPORT.
John Green, currently executive producer of the weekend edition of GOOD MORNING AMERICA, unloaded on the president in an ABC company email obtained by the DRUDGE REPORT.
“If he uses the ‘mixed messages’ line one more time, I’m going to puke,” Green complained.
The blunt comments by Green, along with other emails obtained by the DRUDGE REPORT, further reveal the inner workings of the nation’s news outlets.
A friend of Green’s at ABC says Green is mortified by the email. “John feels so badly about this email. He is a straight shooter and great producer who is always fair. That said, he deeply regrets the sentiment expressed in the email and the embarrassment it causes ABC News.”
I’m sure John Green is mortified that his opinion of President Bush was released on the internet. However, he isn’t saying anything conservatives don’t already know: the media has an inherent bias against President Bush. Mr. Green’s e-mail is simply the most recent example of it. I’m curious what else Green said about Bush in the additional e-mails that Drudge mentioned.
Kevin adds: Perhaps the old saying about never putting something in writing that you’d be embarrassed to see on the front page of The Washington Post needs to be updated for the Internet age to never put something in writing that you’d be embarrassed to see under the Drudge siren…
Update: From Newsbusters: Keith Olbermann claimed on his show this evening that the White House leaked Green’s memo to Drudge.
What a chump.
