To ABC's Surprise, Katrina Victims Praise Bush and Blame Nagin

Posted by Brent Baker on September 16, 2005 - 00:50.

ABC News producers probably didn't hear what they expected when they sent Dean Reynolds to the Houston Astrodome's parking lot to get reaction to President Bush's speech from black evacuees from New Orleans. Instead of denouncing Bush and blaming him for their plight, they praised Bush and blamed local officials. Reynolds asked Connie London: "Did you harbor any anger toward the President because of the slow federal response?" She rejected the premise: "No, none whatsoever, because I feel like our city and our state government should have been there before the federal government was called in.” She pointed out: “They had RTA buses, Greyhound buses, school buses, that was just sitting there going under water when they could have been evacuating people."

Not one of the six people interviewed on camera had a bad word for Bush -- despite Reynolds' best efforts. Reynolds goaded: "Was there anything that you found hard to believe that he said, that you thought, well, that's nice rhetoric, but, you know, the proof is in the pudding?" Brenda Marshall answered, "No, I didn't," prompting Reynolds to marvel to anchor Ted Koppel: "Very little skepticism here.”

Reynolds pressed another woman: “Did you feel that the President was sincere tonight?" She affirmed: "Yes, he was." Reynolds soon wondered who they held culpable for the levee breaks. Unlike the national media, London did not blame supposed Bush-mandated budget cuts: "They've been allocated federal funds to fix the levee system, and it never got done. I fault the mayor of our city personally. I really do."

Full transcript follows. Video excerpt: RealPlayer or Windows Media. Plus MP3

The MRC's Rich Noyes alerted me to the reactions ABC broadcast.

Immediately after Bush finished his speech from Jackson Square in New Orleans, at about 8:26pm local CDT, Ted Koppel, anchor of ABC's hour-long coverage, went to Dean Reynolds who was outside in a parking lot with a group of black people from New Orleans who are living at the Reliant Center next to the Astrodome.

(No names were provided on-screen for those interviewed, so I only have first names for two, and no name for one, of the six.)

Reynolds elicited reaction from the group sitting in chairs: “I'd like to get the reaction of Connie London who spent several horrible hours at the Superdome. You heard the President say retpeaedly that you are not alone, that the country stands beside you. Do you believe him?”

Connie London: “Yeah, I believe him, because here in Texas, they have truly been good to us. I mean-”

Reynolds: “Did you get a sense of hope that you could return to your home one day in New Orleans?”

London: “Yes, I did. I did.”

Reynolds: “Did you harbor any anger toward the President because of the slow federal response?”

London: “No, none whatsoever, because I feel like our city and our state government should have been there before the federal government was called in. They should have been on their jobs.”

Reynolds: “And they weren't?”

London: “No, no, no, no. Lord, they wasn't. I mean, they had RTA buses, Greyhound buses, school buses, that was just sitting there going under water when they could have been evacuating people.”

Reynolds: “Now, Mary, you were rescued from your house which was basically submerged in your neighborhood. Did you hear something in the President's words that you could glean some hope from?”

Mary: “Yes. He said we're coming back, and I believe we're coming back. He's going to build the city up. I believe that.”

Reynolds: “You believe you'll be able to return to your home?”

Mary: “Yes, I do.”

Reynolds: “Why?”

Mary: “Because I really believe what he said. I believe. I got faith.”

Reynolds: “Back here in the corner, we've got Brenda Marshall, right?”

Brenda Marshall: “Yes.”

Reynolds: “Now, Brenda, you were, spent, what, several days at the Superdome, correct?”

Marshall: “Yes, I did.”

Reynolds: “What did you think of what the President told you tonight?”

Marshall: “Well, I think -- I think the speech was wonderful, you know, him specifying that we will return back and that we will have like mobile homes, you know, rent or whatever. I was listening to that pretty good. But I think it was a well fine speech.”

Reynolds: “Was there any particular part of it that stood out in your mind? I mean, I saw you all nod when he said the Crescent City is going to come back one day.”

Marshall: “Well, I think I was more excited about what he said. That's probably why I nodded.”

Reynolds: “Was there anything that you found hard to believe that he said, that you thought, well, that's nice rhetoric, but, you know, the proof is in the pudding?”

Marshall: “No, I didn't.”

Reynolds: “Good. Well, very little skepticism here. Frederick Gould, did you hear something that you could hang on to tonight from the President?”

Frederick Gould: “Well, I just know, you know, he said good things to me, you know, what he said, you know. I was just trying to listen to everything they were saying, you know.”

Reynolds: “And Cecilia, did you feel that the President was sincere tonight?”

Cecilia: “Yes, he was.”

Reynolds: “Do you think this is a little too late, or do you think he's got a handle on the situation?”

Cecilia: “To me it was a little too late. It was too late, but he should have did something more about it.”

Reynolds: “Now do you all believe that you will one day return to your homes?”
Voices: “Yes” and “I do.”

Reynolds: “I mean, do you all want to return to your homes? We're hearing some people don't even want to go back.”

Mary: “I want to go back.”

Reynolds: “You want to go back.”

Mary: “I want to go back. That's my home. That's all I know.”

Reynolds: “Is it your home for your whole life?”

Mary: “Right. That's my home.”

Reynolds: “And do you expect to go back to the house or a brand new dwelling or what?”

Mary: “I expect to go back to something. I know it ain't my house, because it's gone.”

Reynolds: “What is the one mistake that could have been prevented that would have made your lives much better? Is it simply getting all of you out much sooner or what was it?”

Mary: “I'm going to tell you the truth. I had the opportunity to get out, but I didn't believe it. So I stayed there till it was too late.”

Reynolds: “Did you all have the same feeling? I mean, did you all have the opportunity to get out, but you were skeptical that this was the really bad one?”

Unnamed woman: “No, I got out when they said evacuate. I got out that Sunday and I left before the storm came. But I know they could have did better than what they did because like they said, buses were just sitting there, and they could have came through there and got people out, because they were saying immediate evacuation. Some people didn't believe it. But they should have brung the force of the army through to help these people and make them understand it really was coming.”

London: “And really it wasn't Hurricane Katrina that really tore up the city. It was when they opened the floodgates. It was not the hurricane itself. It was the floodgates, when they opened the floodgates, that's where all the water came.”

Reynolds: “Do you blame anybody for this?”

London: “Yes. I mean, they've been allocated federal funds to fix the levee system, and it never got done. I fault the mayor of our city personally. I really do.”

Reynolds: “All right. Well, thank you all very much. I wish you all the best of luck. I hope you don't have to spend too much more time here in the Reliant Center and you can get back to New Orleans as the President said. Ted, that is the word from the Houston Astrodome. And as I said, when the President said that the Crescent City will rise again, there were nods all around this parking lot.”

Liberal Bias, or Liberal Hatred?

from ayc on September 16, 2005 - 03:07

There's no liberal bias in the mainstream press. Yeah, right. Like ABC Bush-basher Dean Reynolds was hoping to hear African-Americans praise Bush and criticize Blanco and Nagin in interviews he conducted outside the Astrodome after the President's speech.

The people there at the scene know who's to blame. And no amount of liberal media spin is going to fool them.

I wonder how long it will take for them to find one or two 'Cindy Sheehans' that the media can rally around.

Unfortunately, the media has learned its lesson. No more live interviews. AP carefully picked 3 anti-Bush evacuees for its interviews.

I hope we are able to hold the media accountable for many of their Katrina reporting errors.

This event demonstrates that folks some of us would consider are firmly in the hands of the democrats are a high level of esteem for President Bush.

The media has an agenda to bash a president that many folks love, and from that love, have placed faith in this president that he is the President for all of our Nation.

Is it any wonder that many of us never, and that is just never, tune into the Big Networks for "News"

Thank you, Mary.

I'm a New Orleanian, born and raised. Believe me when I tell you that until Katrina, and probably beyond, many, many people down here DECIDE to stay and ride out the hurricane.

I spoke with my next door neighbor yesterday as we were both in our back yards, which are now joined (The fences were blown down), with huge trees down all around us, as he told me he rode the storm out in his house. He said, "What's the worst that could happen?" Even now, he doesn't understand the danger he put himself in.

It's a frame of mind down here.

I need to remember that to many who are non-political the opposition to Bush is not personal, but based on a certain bloody-mindedness born of a sense that they're ALL crooked as hell.

Bush from the day he was elected in 2000 has said what he's going to do and then does it.

He's a can-do kind of president, vs. a BS president. The dems just don't understand how they have lost trust by all their BS and racial demagoguery.

I watched a rather frantic Rita Cosby on PMSNBC, right after speech, interviewing a black NO sheriff. The first thing she says is, "what part of the speech did you disagree with most".
He goes on whining about hw he can't communicate with feds. etc. Then she got three other anti-Bush blacks to whine.
What a charade.

Sounds just like the John Robert's confirmation hearings, ABC being the Democrat Senators trying to trick or egg these people on to blame or criticize President Bush, but, they weren't going to take the bait and put the blame rightfully were it belings.
In the last 2 weeks, we are seeing the tide turning BIG TIME in favor of President Bush and the Republicans.
The Democrats/MSM/Liberals tried and lied, but the people are not taking the bait.

Great post.

Here's more:

***.........HOUSTON, Sept 4 (Reuters) - In the last week, Joseph Brant lost his apartment, walked by scores of dead in the streets, traversed pools of toxic water and endured an arduous journey to escape the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in his hometown New Orleans.

On Sunday, he was praising the Lord, saying the ordeal was a test that ended up dispelling his lifelong distrust of white people and setting his life on a new course. He said he hitched a ride on Friday in a van driven by a group of white folks.

"Before this whole thing I had a complex about white people; this thing changed me forever," said Brant, 36, a truck driver who, like many of the refugees receiving public assistance in Houston, Texas, is black.

"It was a spiritual experience for me, man," he said of the aftermath of a catastrophe...*** Source

London: “No, no, no, no. Lord, they wasn't. I mean, they had RTA buses, Greyhound buses, school buses, that was just sitting there going under water when they could have been evacuating people.”

I certainly hope this makes it to every person who voted for Nagin and Blanco, and against President Bush.

I watched reaction on Headline News and all, including black people had nice things to say about President Bush. Said he is trustworthy, a man of faith, and that they believe him when he says something. I can't remember anyone saying anything negative.

What was most interesting, though, was one of my liberal sisters who called to say she was watching ABC, and saw the Reynolds interviews. She was appalled at how hard he tried to get them to say something negative about Bush. She said it was blatantly obvious what the guy was doing. It surprised and pleased me that she would recognize it for exactly what it is: liberal bias in the media. Baby steps.
