Update: The NBC feed is working. I’m able to record it, for some reason, but not actually see it play. Let me know what’s happening in the comments.
Update: It looks like the cable nets may be carrying this too, at least for awhile. MSNBC already has the feed and Fox appears to cut to it.
Update: In fairness, if Bush had come out against the speech, the left would be demagoging him as opposed to free inquiry, etc etc. But still:
“This is a place of high learning and if the president (of Columbia) thinks it’s a good idea to have the leader from Iran come and talk to the students as an educational experience, I guess it’s OK with me,” Bush told FOX News in an interview. “The problem is Ahmadinejad uses these platforms to advance his agenda, which I suspect in this case … He doesn’t want America to know his true intentions.”
