    Fox is a cable news network and will not be “mainstream”
    until all of the country has cable. Until then the big 3
    are what all of the country can view, and are mainstream.
    I thought is was a very good interview.

    There actually were reports along the way. One of the more reported moments followed the President's hospitalization when he fell and struck his head on a table in 2002. The official story was that he was choking on a pretzel. A British physician who had been at Walter Read said he was told that the blood test taken at admission indicated intoxication. There were alo comments at varous times from members of the press corps about just how dry that wagon was. From my perspective, it is irrelevant. Presidents are allowed to have drinks, and even allowed to have a few too many while watching football on a Sunday afternoon. I never saw any evidence of an alcohol problem during his presidency and consider the question of whether or not he ever had a drink to fall into the same category of "none of my business" as whether or not Obama sneaks cigarettes or Bill Clinton ate Big Macs.

    Well said.

    While I disagree with almost everything Pres. Bush did in office, and we will be paying the price for generations to come, I must say he has conducted himself as a gentleman and statesman in his retirement, including this interview. I think there are glaring inconsistencies in what he says and what he did, but that's understandable. I suspect, that like his father and Pres. Clinton, he will begin to emerge onto the humanitarian stage, or at least I hope he does. This is one area where former presidents can make a huge difference, and project America's goodwill.

    I recall John Hightower, from Texas, had issues with frequent benders, including alleged black-out periods, which cost him an appointment. In toda's i-reporter era and 24 hour news, it probably behooves politicos NOT to be seen boozing, with rare exceptions. (I think Hilary's chugging a beer on the campaign trail was seen as a "human" moment, and may have helped her)

    Oh, I agree as well. If any job can drive you to drink, it's that one. I just think if the MSM had any inkling of a problem, they would have been on it worse than Watergate or Monica gate. They simply couldn't resist. We all know it's not like the Kennedy years when the press looked the other way from his indiscretions.

    Aw contraire Black Jacques Shellac,
    All your examples are also cable networks
    Compare CBS, ABC or NBC open air broadcasts
    To cable. Cable is not nationwide……
