Thank you for posting #1. It was hard to stomach all the whitewashed BS around George HW Bush's funeral. I know no one "speaks ill of the dead" when they pass, but it's still galling for a warmonger and another Big Oil stooge who moved America further down the road to where it is today.

@Debra
I agree; I was sorry he died, because that's how I am, but I was even sorrier at the way he lived and governed.

Good Sunday To All,

I love #1, really all of them. I was listening to NPR this morning and they discussed the "whitewashing" of the Bush legacy. The question was asked who do the reporters represent when covering the death of a president. The point was made that, while we respect the family, the coverage should be about his public life because a president belongs/represents the people. A salient point was made that there are young people who have no idea of who Geroge H. W. Bush is. They may just know he was a president. It is the reporter's responsibility/accountability to report the totality of his presidency. Not just the good parts. Let the facts fall where they may. Let the reader decide for themselves=critical thinking- their opinion of Geroge H.W. Bush.

David Greenburg has a great report in Politico that addresses this very subject. It's a good read- https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2018/12/01/george-hw-bush-legacy-222730

Have a great week all.
