“Last night saw two competing A-List media parties in Washington — Roll Call’s 50th anniversary soiree and the Atlantic’s Mike Kelly Awards dinner — and veteran reporters at both scenes were complaining about Neil Cavuto’s ‘shameful’ interview of President Bush on Wednesday,” TVNewser’s cousin FishBowlDC reports. “For a press corps that often gets attacked for being ‘too soft’ on the President, Cavuto’s softball interview struck a nerve with many other White House correspondents who saw it as a wasted opportunity to actually contribute something to the national discourse — especially in a week that saw so much news of import.”
