Nine Month Renovation of WH Press Room

Last week the White House announced that they were going to do a makeover of the White House Press Room. One might think that would mean adding some new curtains or a fancier podium, or maybe even getting a new Press Secretary, but nope. They are going all out on this one. They are going to re-do pretty much the entire room. The wall behind Tony Snow will now be a TV wall, which can display any type of graphic or video they want. I can't wait to be brainwashed by the new TV wall.

I haven't heard anything about how much this new makeover will cost American taxpayers, but I did hear that it will take NINE MONTHS to complete the renovation. The Daily Show with Jon Stewart re-did their studio in about two weeks or so. Why would it take nine months to complete it at the White House?

Some are questioning the length of the renovation. Here is a piece from the New York Times:

Thus the renovations, which are expected to last nine months. During that time, the journalists who cover the White House will move to quarters across Pennsylvania Avenue, prompting some to suspect that they were being pushed out for good by a president who is not exactly a big fan of the press.

That seems like something this President would do. I don't know what the big deal is already. Why don't they just close down the White House Press Room and ban all media outlets from covering this Administration, and then make Fox News the Official Government-Run 24/7 News Network. They already have Tony Snow on board. Everyone else on that network is a cheerleader for Bush and the Republicans, so it is a realistic plan.


  • More communists who wants to undermine America.

    Why don't you start judging yourselves by the same yardstick? It's not enough that we have to deal with terrorists, but internal saboteurs?

    We should be cracking down on people like you, instead of pandering to them. How many more American and Israeli babies have to die before you understand?
