I didn’t say one-way or the other rather I agreed or disagreed with the links. I merely posted them to show you what happens when one side or the other starts with the garbage. And as far as I am concerned both side are equally capable of digging up garbage and spreading it around.
You can certainly say that newsmax is right wing media, but most of the stories are out there and being carried by mainstream media as well. I was very disappointed in seeing all this trash being tossed around on CNN, Fox and any number of other cable shows last night. I used the link not because I like newsmax, because I don’t. But they did have them consolidated in one place.
One undercover FBI agent was particular interesting in linking Kerry and his support to the anti-war movement and some of their violent protests. Which may or may not have been a stretch. I’m no sure he was implying Kerry had a hands on role in the violence but the suggestion was very obvious the he had to know, or was extremely ignorant and exhibited bad judgment.
As I mentioned in another area, Time magazine editor said it was a shame that both parties have decided to make an issue out of Bush’s Nat’l Guard service and Kerry’s war protesting. He referred to it as a minor issue.
I agree…. Neither Kerry’s nor Bush’s 30 years old records are anything more then mud slinging attempts to hide form the real issues by both parties equally to blame.
These stories and issues (on Kerry) have been around for years; democrats that opposed him in primary elections used many of them. To suggest that they are merely “right-wing partisan propaganda” may be less then totally accurate. If you seen Kerry on Letterman a month or so back, he talked about some of these issues and said he will deal with them the same way he did when his fellow democrats, as well as Republicans, brought them up in the past.
It is not all that unusual to see a democrat or a republican did up trash on a fellow party member to use in a primary and then see that trash used buy the opposing party during the general election. It’s one of the benefits of being the incumbent and not being opposed in the primary.
Oh year, did I mention he rode into the Letterman studio on a Harley-Davidson motorcycle? But only after trading in an Italian built cycle he rode for years until he decided to run for president.
