On World AIDS Day, Media Won’t Acknowledge Bush Successes | NewsBusters.org

bush_aids  I would never expect the MSM to give Bush credit for ANYTHING he did if it might be considered good or better than Obama.

Today is World AIDS Day, on which we reflect on the global epidemic that has taken so many millions of lives and ponder ways in which we can improve world health by combating the terrible illness. In honoring the day, however, some news outlets have neglected to note the tremendous contributions to the AIDS effort undertaken by our last president.

MSNBC noted on its website a recent U.N. report that found that new cases of the syndrome are "stabilizing." "There are now 4 million people on lifesaving AIDS drugs worldwide, a 10-fold increase in five years," the article noted, adding that those drugs have saved roughly 3 million lives, according to the report (h/t NB reader Tom M.).

Yet MSNBC makes no mention of President Bush or his tremendous efforts to combat the global AIDS epidemic. It’s not as if his contribution to the fight is ambiguous. U.S. News reports that the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) is credited for saving roughly 2 million lives.
