When the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth came forward and voiced what they remember from Senator John Kerry’s actions in Vietnam in 1969, it differed from what the senator had remembered and he had a cow. Liberals all over America, especially in the mainstream media, had heifers that day.
More than 250 Vietnam veterans who served at the same time in the same war zone with Senator Kerry claim he has lied about his service in Vietnam. He campaigns with a dozen or so vets who stand by his story, but that story has changed since the Swift Boat ad came out.
The 250 haven’t changed their story, but Senator Kerry had to change his because it wasn’t true. Subsequently, though, one more vet who served with him has come out supporting some of his story. He is William Rood, an editor at the Chicago Tribune.
The No. 1 job of the mainstream press in 2004 is apparent to me: Help Senator John Kerry’s presidential campaign at all costs. It repeats and produces lies that help him and hurt President Bush. It censors facts that hurt the senator and prove Mr. Bush to be truthful.
The news as reported seldom violates the help Senator Kerry/hurt President Bush rule. The only time truthful news that hurts the senator or helps the president is reported is when the truth has been reported by uncensored news outlets and the nation demands the truth.
Liberal newspapers are eager to help the Democrats. For the liberal media, lying by and for a liberal politician is admirable especially if it can help remove a conservative from office.
Journalists used to curb their political activism in their reporting, but that is no longer true. The mainstream media are all willing and eager liars for the Democrat Party. It is an up front and corrupt loyalty. News outlets shouldn’t report lies as truth when they know them to be lies.
Senator Kerry could prove or disprove what he claims by requesting that his military records be released. He has yet to do that and I doubt he will. So, I have to believe 250 Swift Boat veterans over a dozen or so who support Senator Kerry.
Liberals don’t want honesty to have any effect on this election. They want Senator Kerry to win.
