Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" on Friday that the media has the responsibility to ignore the Tea Party and not give any credence to their views. Here's what he said:
SEN. JOHN KERRY: "And I have to tell you, I say this to you politely. The media in America has a bigger responsibility than it's exercising today. The media has got to to begin to not give equal time or equal balance to an absolutely absurd notion just because somebody asserts it or simply because somebody says something which everybody knows is not factual.
"It doesn't deserve the same credit as a legitimate idea about what you do. And the problem is everything is put into this tit-for-tat equal battle and America is losing any sense of what's real, of who's accountable, of who is not accountable, of who's real, who isn't, who's serious, who isn't?"

Hey Knucklehead, have you and Lovie paid those evaded property taxes on your yacht yet?

Commie Vietnamese Museum Display
With Syrian Butcher Assad
“It doesn’t deserve the same credit as a legitimate idea about what you do”
This is a common tactic of the left. Urge media to ignore the right. First heard it applied to the global warming hoax.
Just shows how bad the left is getting beat.
I find it incredible that a Dem like Kerry is complaining about media coverage. Kerry's simply trying to tuck the MSM into his pocket and shove them back in because they dared to peek out and air something that wasn't along the Dem's party lines. Piece of advice John: Shut up! The public didn't like you 8 years ago and they like you even less now and don't even get me started on the self-centered bi%$^ you sold yourself to.
Just like all the other Left Wing Liberals, they HATE diversity of anything if it collides with their way of thinking.
They would rather destroy true free speech rather than allow it for those who disagree with them.
Un-American Constitutional hating Tyrant.
Kerry you POS!
I guess the media has a responsibility not to ask about that form he was supposed to release (something about his military career in Viet Nam, where he was for a while, dontchaknow!).
Too bad the N. Vietnamese did not capture his ass during the brief time he was there. What an absolute scum bag! But you know what, this is just a reflection of the HUGE divide between many here that cherish freedom and those that, beyond ‘not caring less about it’, actually WANT TO ELIMINATE IT!
It’s high time to start calling these ‘Americans’ actual “traitors” to their country!
Classic quote: “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
BTW, Kerry’s tax free yacht The Isabelle is for rent in Ft. Lauderdale for $45,000 a week in tax free Florida.
“The media has got to to begin to not give equal time or equal balance to an absolutely absurd notion just because somebody asserts it or simply because somebody says something which everybody knows is not factual.” ..................................................... Oh, does that include the constant Palin smears from the press? Of course not, the double standard only applies to the left leaning media. Hmmmmm? Christmas in Cambodia comes to mind, wasn’t Kerry on a secret mission there, he was wounded while Bush was AWOL from the USAF? Yeah, that was all factual. Riiiight.
Hey, John F’n Kerry! I got your “Fairness Doctrine” right here!
Geez John, telling the media they shouldn’t cover your opposition is about as honest as me telling my boss that I should be in charge of deciding how much of a raise I get this year.
So besides putting the Politburo in place in the form of the “Super Congress” we now have demands for censorship by the ruling elite to silence dissent.
Live Shot is very afraid, if this keeps up, and we the unwashed gain power, he may have to, perish the thought, be accountable to the voters...
Too bad the N. Vietnamese did not capture his ass during the brief time he was there................................................. That’s all we needed, he would have been given a radio mike and made into the North Vietnamese version of Lord Haw Haw.
I fear that HE IS serious. I think the media owes it to the public to BURY JOHN KERRY into obscurity!!!
“...not factual...”, eh?
Hey, Kerry-butt, what about your medals?
Where’s that military discharge form that you’ve never completely released” (The Kerry version of Obama’s two faked birth cerficicates).
What about your compadre who trashed the Swift Boat vets that just had his medals taken back? You and he...perhaps on that secret mission to Cambodia....NOT.
Kerry boy, you’re the white boy version of the Cretin in Chief.
You lie constantly because you have absolutely no talents for anything else.
I've also seen that pic of him as he left the U.S., on his way to serve....He is toting a video camera! Now, who in the early ‘60’s brought a big old video camera with them to war? Oh...that would be some creepy, vapid, windbag that wanted to be immortalized ala John Kennedy.
Honestly, John...You must know that people see through you. “Reporting for duty!”....My arse.
