Attackers must have watched Springer, says Bush

Tue Mar 12, 9:24 PM ET

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Bush (news - web sites) told college sports champions Tuesday that the Sept. 11 attackers must have gotten an idea of the United States as a weak nation from watching "The Jerry (news - web sites) Springer Show."

The television show, featuring Jerry Springer, is a daily free-for-all sometimes with wild on-stage brawls. According to the show's Web site (, it features topics such as "first time fantasies," "angry lovers attack," "bring on the bisexuals," and "scorned lovers fight back."

"They didn't think we were a nation that could conceivably sacrifice for something greater than our self, that we were soft, that we were so self-absorbed and so materialistic that we wouldn't defend anything we believed in. My, were they wrong. They just were reading the wrong magazine, or watching the wrong Springer show," said Bush.

Bush was speaking at a White House East Room event celebrating national championships won by seven National Collegiate Athletic Association teams.
