The Clintons (Begala, carville, Lockhart, McAwful) are now in total control. Kerry is burn't toast. What a maroon.
How large is Rather's staff? Does he take "research" from the DNC or their spin-off fronts?
Is his job to investigate, or to read though the stuff that's handed to him?
If he's "fed" the "news" is there an inherent bias to keep his handlers in power?
Is there a conflict of interest when the people who feed you the "news" are out of power and your take isn't as good? Is there an incentive to get "your guys" back in?
Does Rather have a dog in this fight? If the insiders who give him the "good stuff" are out of power, how "good" is the "stuff"? Rather still shills for dems, but people don't care as much because dems don't call the game. And Rather doesn't have insider Republicans to do his job for him....
If the DNC is doing Rather's work for him and for CBS, is CBS being paid by the DNC?
What is the is the coin of the realm for a one-sided "bribe" in the news field?
Can you just imagine how the republicans would be
regarded if they had attacked FDR during WWII in
the same way the democrats attack Bush now ?
The islamofascists hate us all, democrats, republicans and independents.
I'm pretty sure they're implying that buckhead's secret indentity is ... Karl Rove?
So now they are trying to say Bush smeared himself?
So all the stuff not in bold was written in the "ABC Notes"?
How'd you get them?
Now NBC and ABC need to feast on their own (ABC) MSM. They need the ratings and I hope it turns out to be a feeding frenzy. A house divided (MSM) cannot stand.
Where would this story have gone without the FREEPERS?!?!
Congratulations to all involved!
Burden of proof is on the Democrats and CBS.
They have to prove their charges.
They have yet to do so.
If you want on the list, FReepmail me. This IS a high-volume PING list...
Oh, never mind, I see you used bold for emphasis and put your comment in parens. It just reads so oddly to me, I obviously have never seen such notes.
Personally, just because I'm catty, I'd like to send a cease and desist to ABC's The Note on Fair Use violations and copyright infringement. Our new policy should be link to the thread and only post the Freeper's screen name.
Note......another freeper beat me to it....with a little less elaboration.
Even if some sneaky Republicans did perpetrate this hoax, it served to expose a very important truth -- how the left-leaning media instantly believes and disseminates ANY anti-Bush information no matter how flimsy the evidence for it. If it was Republican hoaxsters, I hope they run a similar hoax in a couple of weeks -- only with some fake anti-Kerry docs. Then, when the MSM thoroughly investigates the docs, determines they are fake and runs stories headlined about how someone is spreading fake anti-Kerry docs, the hoaxsters can reveal themselves and prove their point beyond a shadow of a doubt.
I have been reading FreeRepublic almost since it began and have always considered it one of the very best sources for breaking news. I never realized it would someday SAVE the COUNTRY. The nation owes a debt of gratitude to those Freepers who pulled this off. God bless you.
