Bush’s Overscheduled August (washingtonpost.com) Media Notes by Howard Kurtz. So there’s a flap about Bush taking a 4-week vacation. Kurtz asks:”Hasn’t the president earned some time off? Isn’t this a classic non-issue?” Apparently not. The problem is that, with much of government on vacation in August, there’s not much drama for journalists to cover. Hmmmm…perhaps now would be a good time for journalists to do some policy analysis.
