  • Media squander public trust by playing politics

    New York Daily News ^ | 11/03/04 | Michael Goodwin
    Even before we knew who won the election, we knew who lost it: the media. And the race wasn't close. News organizations of every stripe and type took a beating in the campaign of 2004. Mostly, they earned it, with the result being the clock has been turned back on decades of progress in standards and fairness. Trust in the media is at an all-time low. Screwups were a big part of the story, the lowlight being CBS News' September "scoop" on favored treatment given to George W. Bush 30 years ago in the National Guard. Shockingly, CBS still has...

    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. I think this is important. It was so...

    What a treat on "Fox & Friends" this morning: William Kristol hammered the pro-Democrat New York Times and pro-Democrat CBS for "colluding" and "conspiring" with Sen. John Kerry to topple President Bush. Even Kerry's own handlers now admit they have no proof to back up the issue the Democrats concocted with their media allies. Kristol notes in his new column for Weekly Standard: "Pressed on Tuesday afternoon about the accuracy of the allegations on Fox's Big Story with John Gibson, Richard Holbrooke, a senior adviser to the Kerry campaign, said: 'You don't know the truth and I don't know the...

    Why are the New York Times, CBS and John Kerry hyping a fraudulent story on the missing explosives? Why did CBS state the story would not hold until 48 hours before the election? My opinion is they knew John Kerry’s presidential run was over when the following documents broke on October 26, 2004 if press and public where not all distracted elsewhere. Documentary evidence was reveled on October 26, 2004 establishing that John Kerry worked with the Vietnamese communists while Vietnam War was still ongoing. The documents clearly state: “The spontaneous antiwar movements in the US have received assistance and...

    A new study of campaign reporting concludes that Senator John F. Kerry, buoyed by his performances in the presidential debates, was covered by the media far more favorably than President Bush in recent weeks. The survey released yesterday by the Washington-based Project for Excellence in Journalism found that 59 percent of the stories that were primarily about Bush from Oct. 1-14 were negative in tone, compared to only 25 percent of the stories about Kerry. And while 34 percent of the Kerry coverage was favorable, a mere 14 percent of the president's coverage put him in a positive light. The...

    The GOP's Shameful Vote Strategy With Election Day almost upon us, it's not clear whether President Bush is running a campaign or plotting a coup d'etat. By all accounts, Republicans are spending these last precious days devoting nearly as much energy to suppressing the Democratic vote as they are to mobilizing their own. Time was when Republicans were at least embarrassed by their efforts to keep African Americans from the polls. Republican consultant Ed Rollins was all but drummed out of the profession after his efforts to pay black ministers to keep their congregants from voting in a 1993 New...

    WASHINGTON (Talon News) -- Despite being highly criticized last month for running a story using forged memos regarding President George W. Bush's service in the Texas Air National Guard, CBS's "60 Minutes," along with the New York Times, is again at the center of an election year scandal regarding missing explosives in Iraq. At the heart of the controversy are reports that both CBS and the New York Times were working on news stories which would focus on the missing explosives in the context that the explosives disappeared due to inadequate security provided by coalition forces following the fall of...

    On Monday, The New York Times reported that 380 tons of conventional explosives were missing from an Iraqi weapons facility. The Times blamed President George W. Bush for not securing the dangerous explosives immediately after U.S. forces toppled Saddam Hussein’s regime. It was an explosive story timed for maximum political effect. Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry welcomed the news and made it the centerpiece of his campaign speeches, citing the missing explosives as an example of Bush’s failure of leadership. There is only one problem – the story was false. The truth is the explosives were removed before American troops...

    Looking at the "RealClear Politics" plot of the presidential polls, I see two long term trendlines, punctuated by a hell of a lot of what I would refer to as "experimental error": I don't believe that public opinion has been changing as much as these polls seem to suggest. The variation we see up through July looks like what engineers call "sample aliasing" or "jitter". Note that it falls well within the oft-claimed ±4 points of error. This is typical for data taken in noisy sampling environments; I've seen this kind of thing many times. August and September are different....

John Kerry (news - web sites) passed a major test in the three debates with President Bush (news - web sites), standing toe-to-toe with the incumbent and looking at least as presidential. Now the hard part: persuading voters to let him take Bush's place in the Oval Office. Some Republicans openly fretted about the campaign Thursday while the Democrats rushed to polish Kerry's presidential credentials. He planned a series of speeches designed to cast himself as the champion of the middle class and Bush as the toady of the elite. "We're calling this next week an...

    One day after the Supreme Court sealed the 2000 election for George W. Bush, his running mate, Dick Cheney, went to the Capitol for a private lunch with five moderate Republican senators. The agenda he laid out that day in December 2000 stunned Senator Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island, sending Mr. Chafee on a painful journey of political conscience that, he said in an interview last week, has culminated with his decision not to vote for Mr. Bush in November. "I literally was close to falling off my chair," Mr. Chafee said, recounting the vice president's proposals for steep tax...

Meacham foresaw "the possibility that President Bush has peaked about a month too early. Because we all need a narrative to change." Chris Matthews asked: "Is that your prediction?" Meacham replied: "I think it's possible that we're gonna be sitting around saying, 'Well you know Kerry really surprised us.' Because in a way the imperative is to change the story."

    WASHINGTON, Oct. 1 - More than a dozen times in their 90-minute debate on Thursday night, President Bush accused Senator John Kerry of continually shifting positions on Iraq. "As the politics change, his positions change," Mr. Bush said at one point. "You cannot lead if you send mixed messages," he said at another. This line of attack has become a central element of the Bush campaign, and Mr. Kerry was clearly prepared to answer it. "I've had one position, one consistent position," Mr. Kerry said. This is just one of several points on which the candidates disagreed during the debate....

    Sen. John Kerry emerged as the likely Democratic candidate for president after racking up primary wins February 3.

From the very first line, the Times found in favor of Kerry: "The contrast could not be more striking. In March 1969, John Kerry, a 25-year-old Navy lieutenant, reached down from the boat he was piloting in Vietnam's treacherous Bay Hap River and in a spray of enemy fire pulled a soldier out of...

    Five weeks before the election, Tuesday's CBS Evening News attempted to legitimize baseless Internet rumors that President Bush secretly plans to revive the draft. Reporter Richard Schlesinger focused his piece around how one mother "is petrified about a military draft, and she's not alone. Mass e-mails are circulating among worried parents," as if the political spam had any merit. Instead of trying to allay the woman's fears with facts, Schlesinger instead asked: "Would you vote for a Democrat?" She replied: "Absolutely. I would vote for Howdy Doody if I thought it would keep my boys home and safe."

    ''Implicit Collusion'' is a strategic response by different stakeholders who coordinate their activities without openly declaring such cooperation to be (illegally) collusive: While the media flood the news with reports of a few western beheadings by terrorists (thus creating a perception that the situation in Iraq is ''deteriorating'') the Democratic presidential candidate reinforces such perception with unyielding packs of lies that he repeats with the intent of ringing true to enough American voters. When the foreign policy debate takes place, Kerry expects voters will be predisposed not to believe Bush when he presents us with more credible evidence that the...

We did not, however, anticipate that those on the Bush team would dare to argue that a vote for John Kerry would be a vote for Al Qaeda. Yet that is the message they are delivering - with a repetition that makes it clear this is an organized effort to paint the Democratic candidate as a friend to terrorists.

    Dan Rather has said that his report on the Killian memos will stand and there shouldn't even be a discussion of a retraction or apology. The MSM media, even when caught in their lies refuse to acknowledge it. If we don't act now they will simply try to steamroll us and get away with it.

    ush's military service in question – again Records appear to show that the president failed to fulfill his duty to the Air National Guard By Kit R. Roane A new examination of payroll records and other documents released by the White House earlier this year appear to confirm critics' assertions that President George W. Bush failed to fulfill his duty to the Air National Guard during the Vietnam War. Most of the documents, which have been reviewed by U.S. News, and former military and Defense Department personnel, were released last February, when reporters raised new questions about Bush's service during...

    This article cites the CBS documents TO SUPPORT the allegations against Bush's Guard service. It never mentions the witnesses who have come forward to cast doubt on the documents and Barnes, including Killian's wife and son. CBS also produced documents that appeared to show that in 1973 Bush's superior officer complained of being pressured to ''sugar-coat" an annual officer evaluation for Bush even though Bush had not been at the base for the year in question.Don't they have internet access in Boston?? There's also a 2nd Globe article by Michael Kranish (Kerry "biographer")REFUTING allegations about Kerry's anti-U.S. activities while he...

    ABC, CBS, CNN and NBC Ignored or Disparaged Swift Vets Against Kerry but Hype Anti-Bush Charges Pro-Kerry Media Expose Their Partisanship     If there were any lingering doubts about whether network reporters are in the tank for John Kerry, Wednesday's newscasts put them to rest. From May to August, the networks ignored or disparaged charges against Kerry by his fellow Swift Boat veterans, but last night the claims of a Democratic partisan topped the CBS Evening News and were featured in prime time on CBS’s 60 Minutes. ABC, CNN and NBC also pounced in seeming unison on the supposed “new questions”...

    In addition to the $233 million John Kerry raised before the Democratic convention, the $75 million in taxpayer funds he received afterward and the $200 million or more that will be spent by Nov. 2 on his behalf by Democratic 527 organizations and the Democratic National Committee, he is now the beneficiary of the valuable services of the news pages of The Washington Post and the New York Times. Both liberal newspapers, whose front pages strongly influence the political coverage of the broadcast networks and CNN, have shamelessly begun running interference for Mr. Kerry.

Bush received favorable treatment when he was in the National Guard during the Vietnam War, the son of Mr. Bush's squadron commander said he doubted the authenticity of some of the memos his father was said to have written. The White House, meanwhile, for the second day in a row dismissed renewed questions about Mr.Bush's service as "recycled" and said they were part of a "coordinated attack" by Senator John...
