KERRY GRANTS THREE REPORTERS BROAD ACCESS TO NAVY RECORDS (What are you scared of Kerry?)
NY Sun ^ | 6/21/05

Posted on 06/21/2005 7:23:42 AM PDT by areafiftyone

WASHINGTON - Senator Kerry of Massachusetts recently granted three reporters broad access to his Navy service records, according to documents obtained by The New York Sun.

The privacy waivers signed by Mr. Kerry authorized the release of "a single, one time copy of the complete military service record and medical record of John F. Kerry" to Glen Johnson of the Associated Press, Michael Kranish of the Boston Globe, and Stephen Braun of the Los Angeles Times.

The waivers, executed on a National Archives form known as Standard Form 180, also permitted release of "an undeleted report" of any discharges ever granted to Mr. Kerry. The undeleted reports would include the "character" of any discharge, the form indicates.

Yeah, it's not like the AP, the Globe and the L.A. Times suffer from pro-Democrat bias problems or anything...

He is absolutely arrogant beyond belief if he thinks this will suffice. Then again, who cares, he is done anyway.

How dare we question him. He is a hero, just ask him.

I was thinking the same thing, Hand picked reporters from left wing news organizations. Anyone know the reporters names yet?

AP, Globe, and LA Times? Need you ask more? The Globe and the LAT are both to the left of the NY Times, and AP has been outdoing Reuters recently in the flagrency of its bias.

I'll bet the 'records' turn out to be a bunch of old scratchy Sousa marches.

Well I guess Kerry, after over thirty years, has finally got his DD214, service and medical records "doctored up" enough so they look half way respectable. He can thank Jimmy Carter for changing his discharge. Although, those of us who actually served in combat in Viet Nam know what a lying, treasonous fraud Kerry really is.

Semper Fi,
Kelly

Most people recognize a prick when they meet one. Kerry certainly qualifies, no matter how much Jimmah Cahtah waxed up his records.

So if these reporters don't request the records then no one will ever see them, I guess.

H'mm.

Too cute by half.

Nothing more than another partial, sanitized disclosure through a "safe" intermediary.

No matter how dishonest,biased,ideological or partisan a given reporter may be, they are first and foremost ambitious and opportunistic. If there really is something juicy or damming in these records, at least one of the reporters will take the opportunity to make a name for themselves. If this information was available prior to the last election, it is possible they would lie to protect Kerry, but now since less is at stake, the desire to advance their own career will have a much stronger pull.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com the Navy said before the election that there were over 100 pages of keri's record he wouldn't release, so... unless there are 100 pages more than the LAST RELEASE he's STILL LYING!!!

Probably true. But it's editors, not reporters, who decide what's "news" and whether to play it on page one or in the D-section on page 63 next to the obits after careful rewrites to slant it exactly the way they want it. The only time competitive instincts come into play is when the opposition's about to scoop you with your own story. Since these three media outlets are already on the same political team it sounds to me as if the huddle's over, the plays have already been called and they don't have to worry about competitors having access to the source material. I've seen this game before.
