You won’t hear Bush say shit on most television broadcasts, but you can hear it all on this unedited clip from Reuters from the G-8 summit where Prime Minister Tony Blair’s live microphone picked up conversation with President George Bush. It’s an extraordinary look at the dynamics of the two world leaders. The tape is being e-mailed and blogged in a big way. We predict that this video clip will be one of the most widely circulated files ever – and widely discussed. Not sure how this will be spun or managed, but its safe to say it’s a historic moment in online video.
