    A Tale of Two Coverages Dated: Monday, September 20 2004 @ 08:00 AM PDT -- by Chris Field Before I begin, allow me to say that it's not "beating a dead horse" when the horse ain't dead yet. Dan Rather is still the national news anchor for CBS: he has not retired in shame nor has he been fired. So, since the matter is not yet over, allow me to yak for a minute on a glaring instance of Leftist media hypocrisy. On the Bush National Guard Report: CBS decided to air a report calling into question Bush's truthfulness about...

    President Bush's United Nations address and John Kerry's foreign policy speech in New York were the two big campaign moments of the week, and it's a relief to see both the candidates and the electorate focusing on the major issues. For a while it seemed as if extricating the candidates from the morass of their military records was going to be as difficult as extricating American forces from Iraq. It was sad that Mr. Kerry's commendable war record was clouded by the more outrageous of the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth's attacks, and it was somewhat surprising that Mr. Bush's...

    During the Vietnam War, veteran John Kerry testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing that an investigation, conducted by Kerry and his group, Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW), revealed that American soldiers committed war crimes and atrocities in Vietnam. The investigation was called Winter Soldier. Now that Kerry wants to be President, some of his former colleagues, quite understandably, resent his allegations and his consorting with the North Vietnamese--as he did in Paris. Although this may be a shock to many liberals, American military policy in Vietnam was not to commit war crimes and atrocities. Some try to...

    If the Federal Election Commission has any sense of shame, it will immediately meet in an emergency session to deal with a scathing new court decision that pinions the commission for what it has long been: the chief writer and enabler of election law loopholes that invite big-money corruption of the political process. In a stinging judgment, a federal judge in Washington struck down 15 of the F.E.C.'s recent rule interpretations as gimmicks transparently designed to undermine - not uphold - the campaign finance reform law of 2002. Rarely has a federal watchdog been so thoroughly rebuked. Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly...

"If people want to come in and special- order them, fine." But while Rider was on vacation, an optimistic colleague ordered 35 copies of "Unfit." "We have 26 on hand," Rider said. They've sold just one copy since Sept. 1, and will return to the publisher those that don't sell. "We've got a bunch of them up on a very top shelf. Yesterday someone came in and put them face out," said Rider. "People...

    The New York Times has a new typewriter key for the Swift Boat veterans story that reads: "the unsubstantiated charges of the Swift Boat veterans." Unsubstantiated? It was Kerry -- not the Swift Boat veterans -- who told The Washington Post: "I wish they had a delete button on LexisNexis." The Swift Boat veterans haven't been forced to retract any of their story [Unfit for Command]. Meanwhile, John Kerry has been issuing about a retraction a day since the Swift Boat veterans started talking. Most recently, Kerry has had to back-pedal on the circumstances surrounding his first Purple Heart. Kerry...

    Why are the Big Media savaging the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth? Why are the Kerryites telling us to move on and debate the real issues--health care, education, the economy? Because they know this could kill John Kerry's candidacy. Because they know this is not just about Vietnam, but also about the credibility and character of the man who would be President. I have followed Kerry since he became famous. In 1971, I urged Nixon not to enforce Chief Justice Burger's order to remove Kerry's Vietnam vets from the Mall. We don't want another Bonus Army episode, I told the...

The ad features one of Kerry's own swift boat crew members, Steve Gardner, refuting Kerry's decades-old claim that he and his crew were in Cambodia. Here is the transcript of the ad:STEVE GARDNER:   “I spent more time on John Kerry’s boat than any other crew member.John Kerry hasn’t been honest, he’s been deceitful.John Kerry claims that he spent Christmas in 1968 in Cambodia and that is categorically a lie.Not in...

    OP-ED COLUMNIST Max Cleland, minus the three limbs he lost in Vietnam, showed up in his wheelchair outside President Bush's ranch in Crawford, Tex., on Wednesday to suggest that the president take the simple and decent step of condemning the slime that is being spread by Bush supporters against the war record of John Kerry. He didn't get very far. The president was busy vacationing and had neither the time nor the inclination to meet with Mr. Cleland, a former U.S. senator who was himself the target of vicious, unconscionable attacks by the G.O.P. slime machine when he ran for...

    Van Odell interviewed on Fox just responded that he'll take a lie detector test "any time". He suggested we give the test to Kerry too. Note that he didn't condition his test on Kerry testing also. He did a great job answering directly all their questions, which is always easy to do when you're telling the truth. I liked his explanation about the alleged enemy fire. He said it would be absurd for the enemy to fire from both sides of the river. They would be shooting at each other.

    deep thoughts | 2004.8.23 | Me
    The Kerry response to the Swift Vets for the Truth is that these charges area a baseless smear on Kerry. Kerry's handlers are going into WJClinton defense mode: Regardless of the accuracy of the charges, divert attention from them by attacking the accusers. That defense did not prevent Clinton from being Impeached, but it did keep him from being removed from office. I do not think this tactic can relied on in this case since the standard that needs to be met is a bit higher. Kerry is running for the approval of the American people, not the Senate.
