PBS Tuesdays "Frontline"

Last night, while surfing, I stopped on PBS "Frontline". A documentury in progress offered the most biased comparrison possible between Bush and Kerry. Bob Woodward and his ilk. Just how many PBS stations across the country aired this junk? I suspect, "Stolen Valor" will not equal the market share this trash contaminated.


TOPICS: Miscellaneous
KEYWORDS: bush; kerry

Glad I missed it. This couldn't have been John Stossel, then. He is really good.

Frontline was a complete Bush hatchet job.

They made Kerry out to be this young JFK type and Bush to be a drunken fool.
They also reported the whole National Guard AWOL thing as fact. Never mentioning one thing about how Kerry's protest of the war affected POWS in Nam.

PBS made Bush out to be the cruel politican who is hungry for power.
While Kerry is a steady thoughtful and diliberate person.
Furthermore, it was made to look as if McCain is a supporter of Kerry.
Never mentioning that McCain actually is supporting Bush.
They could of easily interviewed McCain, but decided that analysis from Bob Woodward was enough. What a joke.

Played in Dallas last night and will replay on Thursday.

I missed the first half on Tuesday so I will have to catch it tomorrow just to see how awful the beginning is.

I hope the debate goes well, I don't want to be pissed off all week.

I was so angry after seeing this biased, pro-Kerry program, I immediately e-mailed Frontline and gave them a piece of my mind. They showed one picture of Bush @ Harvard, sitting in class blowing a big gum bubble and stated "it was the only pic we could find of him". Well, I bet that was bologne! Plan to do a web search to see. They (Frontline) are absolutely trying to bash Bush right before the election...they even had Richard Clark on the program with his lies!
UGH!

I just had the misfortune of stumbling onto this program. Complete trash, I'm reviewing the transcript now to review it, but it was completely one sided, though there were a few shots here and there taken at Kerry.

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/choice2004/etc/script.html

The one example of bias that sticks in my mind the most was the following [discussing the 2 men's reaction to the news we all heard on the morning of 11 September 2001] :

RICHARD CLARKE, National Security Council, 1992-'03: There was a fairly long period of time when he stayed in the classroom in Florida. And I blame that not so much on the president but on the party that was with him.

...

NARRATOR: The night of September 10th, Senator John Kerry attended a dinner in Boston honoring his efforts to normalize relations between the U.S. and Vietnam. The next morning, he was back in his Senate office, and like everyone else, watching the disaster on television.

JONATHAN WINER, Counselor to Sen. Kerry, 1983-97: He was so angry about what these people had done to the United States, what the terrorists had done to Americans, that there was this pent-up energy that needed release and couldn't be released because there wasn't action to take as a senator, as opposed to as a president, at that moment.

NO mention of Kerry/Daschle being "unable to think" for 3/4 of an hour. Pathetic, but expected from PBS.
