Obama's Press Conference
It sounded like a reasonable and cautious way to answer a question, and one that would not alarm or excite anyone.
Later in the day I heard in the news on National Public Radio a reporter state that Mr. Obama would make entitlement reform a major part of his program to correct the continuing and increasing deficit. The reporter did not mention any of the other things that Mr. Obama said would have to be done.
Later, in the News Hour with Jim Lehrer, the reporter made the same statement about how Mr. Obama would go about getting the deficit under control.
This strikes me as an example of biased reporting. It galls me to realize that the news reports came from so-called "liberal" sources.
