There is a potentially earth-shattering story if we can get evidence and conformation of it.

Over on the Daily Kos, we have a story on the front page called:

More BushCo Tragedy Fakery?

Laura Rozen reports:

Dutch viewer Frank Tiggelaar writes:
There was a striking discrepancy between the CNN International report on the Bush visit to the New Orleans disaster zone, yesterday, and reports of the same event by German TV.

ZDF News reported that the president's visit was a completely staged event. Their crew witnessed how the open air food distribution point Bush visited in front of the cameras was torn down immediately after the president and the herd of 'news people' had left and that others which were allegedly being set up were abandoned at the same time. The people in the area were once again left to fend for themselves, said ZDF.

Cna we get as much eivdence and confrimation of this as possible?

Zum letzten Stand jetzt live aus Biloxi Christine Adelhardt

Vor 2 Minuten ist hier gerade der Präsident in seinem Konvoi vorbeigefahren. Was sich hier in Biloxi aber während des Tages abgespielt hat, ist wirklich unglaublich. Plötzlich tauchten hier Bergungstrupps auf, plötzlich waren hier Räumfahrzeuge, die hatte man die ganzen Tage hier vorher nicht gesehen, und das in einem Gebiet, indem es wirklich nicht notwendig wäre, groß aufzuräumen, weil hier lebt weit und breit kein Mensch mehr, die Menschen sind weiter innen in der Stadt. Der Präsident reist mit einem Pressetross. Dieser Pressetross hat damit sehr schöne Bilder, die da sagen sollen, der Präsident war da und die Hilfe, die wird auch kommen. Das Ausmaß der Naturkatastrophe hat mich geschockt aber das Ausmaß der Inszenierung hier heute schockt mich mindestens genauso. Damit zurück nach Hamburg


On the last state of things here's Christine Adelhardt live from Biloxi

2 minutes ago the President drove past in his convoi. But what has happened in Biloxi all day long is truly unbelievable. Suddenly recovery units appeared, suddenly bulldozers were there, those hadn't been seen here all the days before, and this in an area, in which it really wouldn't be necessary to do a big clean up, because far and wide nobody lives here anymore, the people are more inland in the city. The President travels with a press baggage [big crew]. This press baggage got very beautiful pictures which are supposed to say, that the President was here and help is on the way, too. The extent of the natural disaster shocked me, but the extent of the staging is shocking me at least the same way. With that back to Hamburg.

Why would you expect this NOT to be the case? Obviously all Presidential events are heavily stage-managed, and anyone in charge would want to put a positive spin on the situation...

I could give you a hundred equally earth shattering documented stories - it's much, much, much worse than that dude.

This is normal!  No surprise here.  In fact, his entire "ranch" is nothing more than a Hollywood-staged tableau. If you want the link for the history behind the pig-farm-cum-"ranch", let me know.  This entire presidency is STAGED; Bush is the leading man for PNAC.

The techniques used to create the Bush "product" are classic branding, marketing and PR principles.

I found this, an apparent TV station with another tape...so this would be a verification:
