Is Kerry's record out there
NBC? | NavyPilot45

Posted on 10/31/2004 8:07:37 PM PST by NavyPilot45

Did you see the edit I believe NBC did on the Kerry interview? It was with Tom Brokaw and everything I read about the interview said that when questioned about the IQ comparison recently made public, Kerry said " How would they know? I have not released my record." I thought everything concerning Kerry's record was out as stated numerous times by Kerry . But when watching the interview, that portion was edited out. You could tell it was cut out mid senctence. If true, that stinks. What happened to honest journalism.

It is time to go after CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, and take our airwaves back.

You mean this here?


Brokaw interview with Kerry. Interesting response to military records question.
MSNBC ^ | 2004-10-28

Posted on 10/28/2004 5:52:57 PM PDT

Brokaw: Someone has analyzed the President's military aptitude tests and yours, and concluded that he has a higher IQ than you do. Kerry: That's great. More power. I don't know how they've done it, because my record is not public. So I don't know where you're getting that from.

Thesese are some of the comments at http://www.freerepublic.com/
 

  1. Brokaw gave kerry a softball question and suddenly found that he had him down on the mat. But of course he never followed up on it.
  2. Like for instance, "Why isn't your record public? Why do you demand that Bush should release all his service records but hide yours?"
  3. This interview, from a guy who said he was concerned that the American public expected the news media to be objective, is worthless, a Kerry promotion under the guise of honest reporting by an MSM pimp.
  4. Kerry admits his military records are not public!
  5. Keep him talking. He won't be a Senator after a few hours of loose talk either.
  6. Well, the truth shall set you free. Maybe someone needs to pass this on to the SwiftBoat Vets for their FYI. A public admission regarding specifically that his military records are not public.
  7. If Kerry's record, as he says, is not public and someone has analyzed it, does it mean that at least this "someone" has Kerry's record without Kerry's knowledge and permission?

MSM has basically decided to NOT investigate any controversies surrounding Kerry. They have given him a pass on nearly every questionable aspect of his past.

MSM have been completely inept in this election cycle.

Not suprising, given the source. Anwyay, regarding Kerry's record, it strikes me that the central question about his discharge must already be in a public record. When Kerry was hired as an assistant DA in Boston, he would have had to fill out an application, even if it were a mere formality. Every job application for every government job, even in the early 70s, asks if you have ever served in the military (because nearly all gov employers give preference to vets). They would have asked if he were discharged, and if so, what the discharge was. SO....do a Right to Know request under Mass. state law and demand his job application form which is a public record.

It may have something to do with the fact that the IQ story originated with Web pundit Steve Sailer (http://www.isteve.com/), who did get his information from the Kerry website itself -- the results of some obscure test whose significance no one realized when the document dump was posted. Even Kerry didn't know anything about it, evidently. The edit might be a reflection of the realization "We did it to ourselves!" circulating back to the Kerry people.

Been like that all year. He got a pass on it, and the Bush campaign didn't jump on it early enough. That's why this race is as close as it is. They defined Skerry as a flip-flopper early, and rode it too long. They should have hit his voting record and liberalisim right after the RNC. I think we still win though, it just didn't have to be this close.

Yeah I saw it. Amazing, given that they left the original unedited interview up on their site for all the world to see.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6354942/

I wouldn't be surprised if that too disapeared as well.

Brokaw. Whoda thunk it? LOL. It's amazing, they're dropping like flies.

I guess I have 2 problems with that part of the interview. First, Kerry had stated numerous times that everything is out there, IE(financial, military, medical, academic, etc), for public consumption and so there should have been a follow up question, come on it was staring Tom in the face. Second, it seems to be a problem because, they edited Kerry saying it out. It just looks so biased to have it there once but not the second time.

BUSTED! The revised version, the second one, was posted on 10/31.04 at 7:54pm. We were watching and it occured on TV around 7:40pm! NBC quickly realized they needed to cover up and updated the link from the homepage! THE BASTARDS!

Has anyone questioned whether Kerry used the GI Bill to attend Boston College Law School 1973-1976? He would have been authorized to use those funds if he had an HONORABLE DISCHARGE.

Actually, I haven't read that anywhere else. I'm not sure if anyone's looked into whether he used the GI Bill but it sure would be damning if he didn't!

GI Bill started in 1984. No dice on that one.

They had an older version of the GI Bill back then. I used it in 1967-1971.

Brokaw: The flip side of that is that if you had been president, Saddam Hussein would still be in power. Because you...

Kerry: Not necessarily at all.

Brokaw: But you have said you wouldn't go to war against him...

Kerry: That's not true. Because under the inspection process, Saddam Hussein was required to destroy those kinds of materials and weapons.

Brokaw: But he wasn't destroying them...

Kerry: But that's what you have inspectors for...

That is not correct. The GI Bill started after WWII, probably about 1948.

My understanding is that "experts" looked at the SATS of Bush and Kerry and their grade point levels at Yale and determined that President George W. Bush has a IQ of mid 130s of above and Kerry's SATS and GPA were somewhat below GW Bush's.

These are not "sealed" records.

I will say that John Forges Kerry has never qualified in any way ever for MENSA and MENSA would not accept him if he applied.

Bush's SATS and other tests such as the MMM test would most likely place W as in the 140s or 150s by my estimation.

Jack Kennedy had an IQ of 119 and I seriously doubt that John Kerry is equal or above that level.

Truly intelligent people learn from their errors and experiences and grow thruout life; sociopaths, fakers, and criminals steal or merely create a false ID and resume and Kohn the ignorant and unsuspecting; I call those "liberals".

W was known as "Data Boy" while in school because of his unusual ability to recall a wide range of facts and figures and other information he somehow had stored in his young noggin.

John Kerry talents lie in loud self adulation and fakery of his achievements and records; even stealing known historical events of others for himself to enhance his resume.

Note Kerry's speech habits: "Now -- this is important!"

"...seared -- seared....!"

See Kerry's highjacking of other officer's actions in Viet Nam for himself and using John Kerrey's Senate Intell Co-Chair on his campaign website plus the bogus "V" on his Silver Star.

I am wondering if you could consider renaming this thread to something like "NBC edits Kerry's Words.." Or something that highlights what has been done.

Kerry lies and changes history to fit his ego.

The President didn't get where he is by lying or 'being dumb'. We liked him enough here in Texas to re-elect him as Governor.
