Oh, Crap! Mac Geeks Invade White House.

The "surprises" never stop. Certainly none of the unknown billions of $ wasted by the Bush Admin. were diverted to infrastructure at the (No longer!) White House.
One member of the White House new-media team came to work on Tuesday, right after the swearing-in ceremony, only to discover that it was impossible to know which programs could be updated, or even which computers could be used for which purposes. The team members, accustomed to working on Macintoshes, found computers outfitted with six-year-old versions of Microsoft software. Laptops were scarce, assigned to only a few people in the West Wing. The team was left struggling to put closed captions on online videos. Senior advisers chafed at the new arrangements, which severely limit mobility -- partly by tradition but also for security reasons and to ensure that all official work is preserved under the Presidential Records Act. [...] But there were no missing letters from the computer keyboards, as Bush officials had complained of during their transition in 2001.
Could you show some of that "liberal elite media bias" & tell the absolute truth about that claim, WaPo? Reducing it to "Bush officials had complained" is a start, but can't we have both sides? You know, the claim & then the truth?
