"Secret" Bush Tapes

From CNN:
Private conversations with George Bush secretly taped by an old friend before he was elected president foreshadow some of his political strategies and appear to reveal that he acknowledged trying marijuana, The New York Times has reported.

The conversations were recorded by Doug Wead, a former aide to George W. Bush's father, beginning in 1998, when Bush was weighing a presidential bid, until just before the Republican National Convention in 2000, the Times reported Saturday.
Could this be any more transparent? The tapes uncover virtually no dirt on Bush, and portray him in a 100% favorable light. If I was speaking I'd say this really slowly - this ... is ... not ... news.

Gannongate is news. This is not. This isn't bitchy Linda Tripp recording Monica. These tapes are pure propaganda, and every media outlet is breathlessly covering them.
