Known By Rumsfeld, Unknown by CNN's Crowley

For those who wonder why the media is looked at skeptically so often.  You have to look at this Los Angeles Times commentary by Andrew Malcom on an interview that CNN's Candy Crowley did with former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.  Rumsfeld is doing interviews to promote his book, Known and Unknown.

Crowley was determined to make the point that President Obama has elevated America's standing in the world compared to President Bush.  Rumsfeld was having none of it.  Malcom deftly reports on the interview and intersperses images of how fondly some of the people in the rest of the world think of President Obama. If this is love, I would not want to see dislike.

As Mr. Rumsfeld's book title suggests, there are things that are known and things that are unknown.  In this instance, Rumsfeld seems to understand the known.  It appears that there are still things that are unknown to Ms.Crowley.
