Paris Hilton Bumps Dubya

Paris Hilton waves to the crowd with her enormous hand.
NEW YORK (AP) - A quick schedule shift by the White House enabled President George W. Bush to get considerably wider television exposure than he would have otherwise gotten for Thursday's prime-time news conference.

Three of the country's four biggest broadcasters gave the president a quick hook, however, by cutting away to entertainment programming before his session was finished....

Fox anchor Shepard Smith abruptly cut into Bush's answer of the final question to shift away to Paris Hilton and A Simple Life: The Interns.

Read it here.

This is not the first time Hilton has come out on top of Bush.

Back in December, 2003, when Bush gave an exclusive interview to Diane Sawyer, Paris Hilton beat him decisively in the ratings with her "Simple" show. [here]

Attention Karl Rove: learn from your mistakes. Don't ever schedule the President opposite the sex heiress again. She'll just keep beating him to a pulp.
