Bush Briefing on Katrina
On August 30, 2005 the St. Petersburg Times wrote.
On Saturday night, Mayfield was so worried about Hurricane Katrina that he called the governors of Louisiana and Mississippi and the mayor of New Orleans. On Sunday, he even talked about the force of Katrina during a video conference call to President Bush at his ranch in Crawford, Texas.
Remember this when the corporate media acts like the briefing is a new story.
