CNN.com - Bush denies magazine's suggestion of dyslexia - September 12, 2000: "WASHINGTON (AP) -- Republican presidential nominee George W. Bush on Tuesday denied suggestions in a Vanity Fair article that he has dyslexia.
'No, I'm not dyslexic,' Bush said on ABC's 'Good Morning America.' 'That's all I can tell you.'
Bush said he hadn't read the article and referred to his spokeswoman Karen Hughes' characterization: 'In the case of this story, fiction is stranger than truth,' she said.
The article in the magazine's October issue quotes language experts who say Bush's tendency to mix up words while speaking is consistent with dyslexia, a neurological disorder impairing the ability to read and write.
