Default 20/20 tonight is disgusting me

Can't believe they brought up how poorly hurricane Katrina was handled and blamed Bush and his cabinet... but no where was there mention of the local and state government's ignorance that caused the chaos! George snuffouluphogus and the media at again it as usual.

The media is a disgustingly terrible institution that will and has been trying to destroy this country.

Remember whom they are entertaining; other liberals or the dim bulb that gets his/her news once a week from a show like that because they like the way the person dresses who delivers the news. Those people buy that garbage in it's entirety. There's a special place in hell for little George and all his shenanigans.

10 years after Katrina, and the NO pumps still haven't been fixed, even after all of the federal grants and money given to them to fix them....it's not a coincidence. Gross mismanagement of funds is what it is

Georgy Porgey cant let a swift and effective response by a current Republican POTUS stand so he has to drum up the past to spread some negativity

Didn't see the 20/20 episode, but sure have been thinking about how differently the 2 disasters were handled. Gotta hand it to the State, local gov., volunteers and charities here in Texas for stepping up big time. I know it's gonna be a long road to recover, but I'm a proud Texan this week!

I saw part of it...The Govn is charge, total charge of the disasters. FEMA will confirm this. Feds are on standby wanting to help.

Katrina was fubar compared to how tx is handling.

From wiki

"On September 3, 2014, a judge deemed Nagin indigent and ordered the Federal Public Defender's Office to take over his appeal. Nagin said he was near penniless and relying on food stamps.[67] Nagin reported to the Federal Correctional Institution, Texarkana, a prison camp, on September 8, 2014.[68] Nagin, Bureau of Prisons (BOP) #32751-034, is presently incarcerated at this facility. His earliest possible release date is May 25, 2023.[69]"

I'll bet they mention nothing about the idiot Houston mayor telling everybody to stay at home and ride it out. He must be Nagin's brother from another mother.
