Laura Bush's Day of Irony

Complaining about opinions replacing facts in "news" coverage while appearing on the O'Reilly Factor? Will Laura Bush be flying to Burma soon to discuss how Burma's neighbors need to become more democratic?

"I think there are a lot of reasons to be critical of the media in America," she said in an interview Tuesday with Fox News Channel's "The O'Reilly Factor."

"I think that a lot of times the media sensationalize or magnify things that aren't -that really shouldn't be," she said.

"I do think there's a big move away from actual reporting, trying to report facts," the first lady said. "It's in newspapers and everything you read - that a lot more is opinion."

On the other hand, maybe she just wants journalists to stop covering "things that shouldn't be," such as the war in Iraq.
