Coverage Of President Bush's Speech

All of the major television networks aired President Bush's address on the Iraq War on Thursday night. Many of those channels had extended coverage and analysis, others rushed back to regularly scheduled programing and advertising. This morning major newspapers such as the New York Times and Washington Post offer stories and analysis as does Morning Edition on NPR.

The best story on Mr. Bush's speech itself also provides an intriguing and telling look at the coverage of the speech on television last night. This piece of journalism won't be found on the front page, nor even in the news section. If you want to know about the speech and how it was covered turn to the style section of the Washington Post and read TV Critic Tom Shales' excellent article.
