News Executives
Are Allowed
To Have
Their Own Opinions

Drudge has the story of John Green, an ABC News Exec who sent out personal emails criticizing Bush:

A top producer at ABC NEWS declared "Bush makes me sick" in an email obtained by the DRUDGE REPORT.

John Green, currently executive producer of the weekend edition of GOOD MORNING AMERICA, unloaded on the president in an ABC company email obtained by the DRUDGE REPORT.

"If he uses the 'mixed messages' line one more time, I'm going to puke," Green complained. The blunt comments by Green, along with other emails obtained by the DRUDGE REPORT, further reveal the inner workings of the nation's news outlets.

A friend of Green's at ABC says Green is mortified by the email. "John feels so badly about this email. He is a straight shooter and great producer who is always fair. That said, he deeply regrets the sentiment expressed in the email and the embarrassment it causes ABC News."

This is interesting, but it isn't surprising, is it? We know the media doesn't like the President. They tell us everyday.

When they lie in their stories, and try to pass off editorial content as news, it is an abuse of their position. However, they are human beings (believe it or not), and, as such, they are entitled to their own personal opinions.
