Howard noted that Tony Bennett’s appearance on the show–and particularly, Tony’s claim that President Bush once told him the Iraq War was a “mistake”–had become a big story. President Bush even released a statement.

“It’s unbelievable. President Bush actually denied a story that came out of this show,” Howard said.

But Howard thought the president had long lost credibility. “Why would Tony Bennett lie about that?” he wondered.
