AP, CBS, Washington Post and other liberal news organizations don't want to highlight who controls ANSWER (Workers World Party) because they support the anti-war, tear-down America goals of ANSWER. They also end up supporting the other stated positions of ANSWER -- like the unconditional support for the Iraqi insurgents (make that terrorists) who are killing American and coalition troops.

If a group of honorable men said about me what they said about Kerry I would be devastated. No, that is too easy. Suicidal would be more like it.

Thanks for posting AP's response explaining why they have not covered the Swift Boat Vets Press Conference. AP's actions in this instance are OUTRAGEOUS! FReep On!

Interesting to note that John Kerry met with Rear Adm Hoffman and tried to convince him not to do this to him (Kerry).

Bumping for business hours calls tommorrow!
I'll make mine - I think it was O'Neil who said "Only one man came back a hero from Viet Nam ...John Kerry." (paraphrased). And that was thanks to JF'nK and the VVAW crowd.

"And now Lt. Gen Claudia Kennedy( Ret ) is on Joe's show defending Kerry and bemoaning..."

Is she the one that was/is dating Terry McAwfull's father-in-law?

Just wondering.

Don't worry. They manage to suppress stuff like this for 18 hours, until Rush gets to it. Then they have to run it.

Did you catch the comment by one of the vets, near the end of the conference, that John Kerry "did not deserve a popsicle or sucker from his pediatrician" for the wound leading to one of his Purple Heart Medals?

It also proves how scared the Kerry Camp is about this News Conference today

Kerry is TOAST .. And They Know It!!

This ain't 1992 .. The truth WILL be told to the public

Screw the AP. For the life of me I can't figure out why so many people get all bent out of shape when the AP, NYT, CNN, etc. show their true colors.

The triumph of hope over experience.

And family members of those vets

As one of those guys said tonight, Kerry basically told the families of 58,000 servicemen that their sons were murderers.

Did I ehar O'Neill correctly early in the presser when he said something liek he wanted to see Kerry withdraw as the nominee, or the dems nominate someone else. I was surprised that he'd make that statement..

CSPAN 2 at 12:25 a.m.

Awwwwww, hell. Would you believe my cheapbutt cable provider only has C-SPAN1? They've been bugged for years to add 2 (we missed out on Sh#%head's impeachment, too), and it costs them what - nothing? They have lots of very lame shopping and religion channels, though; even a few empty channels.

But no C-SPAN2.

Clinton would have been Toast in 1992 and 96 if we had the Internet back then like we do today IMHO! Then those of us in Texas could have gotten out the word about what a fraud Perot was. The media sure didn't print or report anything!

" Why is everyone talking about Vietnam ?"

Well, did she not see Kerry's brand new ads, just out yesterday?

Now, who's talking about Vietnam?

There should be some kind of law about truth in advertising whenever these talking heads appear on TV.

For example, the ticker running beneath Claudia's image saying: This 'ho' gets on her knees for Kerry....

To me, the most devastating statement was the man who said that not one battle was lost in Vietnam; the battle was lost at home -- and that John Kerry was the field commander here.
