How has the US media reported his death?

.

New York Times: “Some critics have said that Mr Hussein would not have been so bold as to invade Kuwait had Washington not shamelessly cultivated him over the years; others faulted Mr Bush for not pushing Mr Hussein all the way back to Baghdad and removing him from power. Such a course, Mr Bush said later, would have ‘incurred incalculable human and political costs … We would have been forced to occupy Baghdad and, in effect, rule Iraq.’ Which is exactly what his son, George W Bush, a less cautious man, set out to do 12 years later – with disastrous results.”

Fox News: “Although occasionally criticized for his lack of eloquence – such as referring to a focus on the larger picture as ‘the vision thing’ – Bush’s comments also could be endearingly frank. Referring to his dislike for a particular vegetable, he once said, ‘I do not like broccoli. And I haven’t liked it since I was a little kid and my mother made me eat it. And I’m President of the United States and I’m not going to eat any more broccoli.'”
