Yet ANOTHER article in Chicago Suntimes questioning Kerry's record. I think (hope), perhaps, the MSM is begining to catch the scent of blood in the water.
You know the media is at war with itself on this. On the one hand it is pulling for Kerry. On the other hand, it smells a BIG story. If Kerry looks any weaker in the polls, the media will move in for the kill, figuring he'd lose anyway, might as well get a good story out of it. Besides, if Kerry goes down with the media defending him still, then it would look worse for them in any post-election analysis. But if they take Kerry down themselves, they avoid that judgment.

I know nothing of the Suntimes.
Is it a liberal newspaper?
There's plenty of blood in the water, but it's blood-type (D), so the media sharks are either slow or unwilling to catch on. Unlike most Freepers, I do believe the MSM will turn on Kerry if the underground keeps hammering this issue. Eventually, they will not be able to resist the opportunity to exert their power and bring down a pompous pol--it happened with Clinton (at least until impeachment) and it can happen with Kerry.
Yeah, that one yesterday in the Sun-Times was the most damnning thing I have read about Kerry in the MSM yet. And it focsed exclusively on the documents on his OWN website. It seems a cursory investigation rasises all kinds of questions about Kerry's awards. I dunno what Kerry did to piss off the Sun-Times, but I agree with whoever suggested that they smell blood in the water.
