There is a big problem with many people who are so ignorant that they don't understand basics about current event. They sit in front of their TVs assuming that the media "would tell them" what they need to know.
The bottom line is the media hasn't been hard on Bush, in fact they have allowed him to get away with being AWOL by not reporting the basic facts or underreporting them.
For the guy under the delusion that there is evidence that Bush showed up when he was supposed to, wake up and smell the coffee:
No Alabama Air National Guard records have surfaced showing Bush did any duty there. Former commanders and other members of the 187th in 1972 and 1973 say they don't remember ever seeing Bush there. AP reports on Bush's record
Bush was AWOL
ANd like I said, many people are ignorant about the basics: No Fly Zones
