Fallout from ex-White House spokesman

    The war of words between the White House and a former spokesman has us wondering: Who should we believe? Former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan says in his new memoir What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington’s Culture of Deception that President Bush and his advisors got so wrapped up in pushing the argument for the Iraq war that they ignored intelligence that didn’t fit the picture. We’ll discuss the fallout from this new book with RON NESSEN, former Washington Correspondent for NBC News who went on to serve as President Ford’s Press Secretary, and with ERIC BOEHLERT author of Lapdogs: How the Press Rolled Over for Bush.
