Legit News or Libelous Bilge?
The National Enquirer reports that Bush is drinking again.
Some points to ponder:
The National Enquirer also scooped the Monica Lewinsky and Gary Hart/Donna Rice stories.
Tabloid Magazines get sued a lot for libel.
Would the Enquirer be stupid enough to make libelous statements against a sitting president?
I once sold a story to the Globe tabloid. Before they ran it they polygraphed me, saying their lawyer insisted on polygraph exams for all single source stories.
Bush has admitted to past drinking problems- but he never sought rehab or AA.
Alcoholics who try to stop drinking without addressing the root of the problem are called dry drunks, who often relapse under pressure.
Ask yourself: is Bush behaving in a manner consistent with a drinker?
Why all those vacation trips to Crawford, where the drinking is said to have occurred?
