This is definately a step beyond using tame WHPC corporate journalists in a "pool," these "reporters" don't even work for, publish in or have any actual affiliation with ANY media outlet. They were hired to shoot cameras (that probably did not even have film), ask scripted questions and generally exist just to make Bush look legit. And in several states in the midwest, it worked. Read the link at the top, keep a vomit bag ready, and get used to it. This is the way the world is for the time being.
