Bush presses editors on security
His job security.

wHoreward Kurtz of the WaComPo reports that the honor-an'-integrity president has been summoning newspaper editors to meetings in an effort to prevent publication of stories he considers damaging to his misadministration "national security." First the Dictator-tot tried to bury the news that he authorized illegal eavesdropping on American citizens. Now we find out he met with editors to put the kibosh on their publishing articles disclosing the existence of the secret CIA "black prison" torture camps in Eastern Europe.

And before you give kudos to a newly-reballed media, now comes word that two columnists have admitted that they accepted payments from indicted rethug pet lobbyist Jack Abramoff for up to two dozen columns favorable to the repuke's clients.
