Ever since former White House spokesman, Scott McClellan wrote his tell-all memoir; through his numerous interviews; he has revealed more about the inner workings of the Bush Administration than any other book or documentary to date.
The secret is out: the Bush / Cheney Administration regularly fed talking points to Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and their acolytes.
For years, we the French Expatriate community and Miquelon.org, strongly suspected Anti-French Talking Points were handed down from the White House to their favored media pundits. We can now say this is in fact how things transpired, thanks to a revealing interview of Scott McClellan by Chris Matthews.
Confirmation of the Trickle-Down-Hatred Model
Anti-French talking points were passed down from the White House to the usual suspects, and then amplified by minions of favorable “journalists” and columnists only to be parroted by compliant entertainers, comediens and talk show hosts like Jay Leno.
Let’s never forget French Bashing was the brainchild of George W. Bush, Richard Cheney and their entourage, not some popular uprising as we were led to believe by Bush himself: “An interesting phenomena taking place here in America about the French … a backlash against the French, not stirred up by anybody except the people” [March 2003]
French Bashing was the ultimate sideshow thrust upon the American people with complete and utter disregard to a centuries old friendship.
