Is this case one of "fake but accurate?" Obviously, ABC knew that the page was not 16, yet published reports that he was.
I wonder if Kerr knows everything that we know about this young man. Someone should invite him to FreeRepublic.
Interesting tidbit from the article:
. . . . Edmund had an Internet page on the popular MySpace Web site.
On that Web page, he identified himself as being 21 years old and said he had been attending college at the University of California, Berkeley. He also identified himself as a House page from September 2001 to June 2002. He would have been 16 and 17 then. He said he was going to Oklahoma to be deputy campaign manager for Istooks gubernatorial effort, according to the Web site. . . . .
So much for the "he was 18!" argument.
Can anyone in Oklahoma tell me if this is big news there? I called my folks last night to tell them to keep watch on this. Just curious if it is actually on the radio/news. Is this from the channel 9 TV station or a web page?
An excellent job by William Kerr.
Thorough and thoughtful.
What makes the right wing internet so good is that the media has to be forced to listen to us, the left wing internet is abysmal because the media holds them to no standard (like themselves LOL!).
