Why don't the media acknowledge that? And it's fair to ask: why don't they ridicule it? After all, in the Bush years, the press re-ran President Bush in front of the "Mission Accomplished" banner time and again, did they not? Perhaps Joe Biden at the signing ceremony saying into an open mic that this was a "big [blanking] deal" would suffice.</p><p><a href="http://www.mrc.org/bozells-column/incredible-shrinking-obamacare" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Bozell's Column News Analysis Division abc cbs NBC obamacare Thu, 27 Mar 2014 21:23:21 +0000 tim.graham 45862 at http://www.mrc.org Oil Spills and Propaganda Ploys http://www.mrc.org/bozells-column/oil-spills-and-propaganda-ploys <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> By</div> <a href="/author/l-brent-bozell-iii">L.
