JibJab debuts ‘What We Call the News’ (ouch)

The annual Radio and Television Correspondents Dinner featured President Bush with such jokes as, “A year ago my approval rating was in the 30s, my nominee for the Supreme Court had just withdrawn, and my vice president had shot someone. Ah, those were the days.” Karl Rove busted a move to big laughs (video). And an excellent new animation from the talented folks at JibJab called, “What We Call the News,” premiered at the annual event. Very well done. In fact, maybe too well done for a TV news audience, but they could use the reality check.
