Krauthammer and Kristol Criticized For Advising Bush On Speech

HeadlineJan 28, 2005

Meanwhile the press watchdog group Media Matters is criticizing Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer and Weekly Standard editor William Kristol for failing to disclose the fact that they advised the president in writing his inauguration speech. Krauthammer appeared on Fox News praising Bush’s address calling it a “revolutionary speech.” Krauthammer admits he attended a meeting at the White House on Jan. 10 but claims he didn’t sense that the meeting was part of Bush’s speech preparation. However his own paper, the Washington Post, reported on Jan. 22 that he was consulted on the speech.
