Media lies

It's a brief little article so click through and read it all. It's by Cenk Uygur and is entitled, "Big media lie: People like George Bush". Here's the critical excerpt:

News Flash - George Bush's approval ratings are at 36%. Those are pre-coup numbers. That's when a politician in a third world country becomes so unpopular that a couple of generals decide to show him the door. Nixon at the height of Watergate was at 39%, three points HIGHER than Bush is right now. And people despised Nixon.

So when are the talking heads going to stop calling him a "popular president"??? It's quite maddening that this claim persists.
