OK, a show of hands. Who got enough news about first daughter Jenna Bush’s Saturday wedding to Henry Hager at Dad’s Crawford, Texas, ranch? Now who thinks the White House should have opened the event to coverage, any coverage? Just what I thought. You got enough. At least that’s what the White House thinks. Insiders say they hope the public thirst for wedding news was satisfied with the 11 wedding pictures posted on the White House website and the few details provided about the dress, the ranch wedding altar, and the cake. One insider tells me that the goal was a balance between keeping the whole event hush-hush and feeding the media. And, according to Bushies, it turned out just right.
But if you need more than you saw about the wedding, check out our friend Julie Mason, whose Houston Chronicle blog, Beltway Confidential, kicked some media butt in outcovering the shindig.
