To see the answer go to Don Surber's column here.
[Bush] says drill. Oil prices drop immediately. The press doesn’t see the connection.
And on top of that, dropping oil prices now are a bad thing.
To recap: President Bush officially announced at a press conference a lift on the presidential ban on offshore drilling — at 10:20 a.m. on Tuesday.
At 11 a.m. on Tuesday, oil prices began a slide from about $145 a barrel to just under $130.
That’s a 10% drop.
How has the press reported this?
