Who is to blame for New Orleans tragedy? (letter)by Frank BelletNews Weekly
, September 24, 2005
It is pleasing to see that there are some sections of the media prepared to show a balance in reports on the tragedy in New Orleans.
Many other articles, cartoons and broadcast commentaries have given the impression that the whole of America has turned on the President. A comprehensive survey taken this week in the US and reported on Fox News, tells a different story.
Thirteen per cent of people blame George W. Bush for delays in help for victims, 18 per cent blame federal agencies, 25 per cent blame state and local offices, 38 per cent blame no-one, and 6 per cent have no opinion.
Answering the Bush critics, 87 per cent do not blame President Bush for the delays.Frank Bellet,
