West Wing creator Aaron Sorkin says the news media has gone too far in its glorification of President Bush, and even accuses his own network, NBC, of being one of the prime offenders. Sorkin cites the Peacock's recent Tom Brokaw-hosted special, The Bush White House: Inside the Real West Wing, as an example. "The White House pumped up the president's schedule to show him being much busier and more engaged than he is and Tom Brokaw let it happen," Sorkin told The New Yorker. "The show was a Valentine to Bush... The media is waving pom-poms and the entire public is being polite."
