Retraction from Yesterday

from - smijer

A comment yesterday at Kos points out that the picture posted there yesterday is from an event in Michigan on July 7 where there were no questions asked of the President. There are no news reports corroborating the story that Bush walked out on a press conference after being asked about Ken Lay. I conclude that the Yahoo! caption on which the story I posted yesterday was based is in error, and therefore Kos was in error and my posts yesterday were in error. I will add a link to this retraction in both of yesterday's posts.

I think that there is enough evidence that the picture itself is real, but the caption is misleading. Scott McSomthing (I can never spell it right) answered questions after Bush left, so it isn't like the session ended. I think it was just an unfortunate angle that an opportunistic biashed editor decided to jump on and caption.
