On your program tonight, Neal Gabler suggested that perhaps Dan Rather & CBS were trying to be fair, and provide equal time to counter the coverage allowed for the Swift Vets. Would you please ask Neal, if Rather & CBS are trying to be fair, why then in 1997, they found it newsworthy to attack Colonel David Hackworth over the medals he had listed on his website, yet they've totally ignored the allegations from the Swift Boat Vets regarding the medals that John Kerry earned? Why is it that the media was so willing to believe the second and third-hand tales of war atrocities from John Kerry in April of 1971? They accepted those tales as truth, despite the fact that Kerry never served with any of the men whose stories he told. Yet the press has refused to even consider the possibility that the Swift Vets, many of whom served within feet and yards of John Kerry on a daily basis, might be telling the truth?
The main stream media creates the lies, spreads them as truths, and perpetuates those lies. Dan Rather & CBS are prime examples of this. The public is fed up with the hypocritical, biased coverage presented as news today. They're also tired of today's journalists arbitrarily deciding which stories will be investigated & reported, and whose record will and won't be scrutinized.
George W. Bush signed Form 180 to release all his military records to the public. John Kerry refuses to sign Form 180. You tell me which man has something to hide.
And here's Dan Rather crying on David Letterman after he learns he's been terminated:
