After a speech to the Associated General Contractors of America, a Bush backer asked the president, "I would like to know why and what can be done about we, the American people, receiving some of that [positive] information [from Iraq] from the media.” Bush emphasized online communication.
“You’ve got a kid in Iraq who is emailing mom daily, talking about the realities of what he or she sees. Information is moving — you know, nightly news is one way, of course, but it’s also moving through the blogosphere and through the Internets. It’s amazing how many emails I see from people that are writing in what they think and what they hear.”
First, yes, he really said “Internets.”
Second, Bush probably shouldn't talk up the troops' blogs since the Pentagon just announced a new policy cracking down on milbloggers.
