Former President George W. Bush appeared on the Today Show this morning, and he sounded a lot more intelligent than I’ve ever given him credit for. Or perhaps it’s just the comparison to Trump. Among the former president’s observations:
“I consider the media to be indispensable to democracy. We need an independent media to hold people like me to account. Power can be very addictive and it can be corrosive. It’s important for the media to call to account people who abuse their power.”
I couldn’t have said it any better.
