See BS sink with Danny Boy Blather

"When the power-brokers mess up, a free press should be the last refuge for ousting scoundrels -- but we journalists can fulfill that function only when we grasp once again that our job is to tell the truth, even when it is politically inconvenient." --Marvin Olasky

"If my forgeries looked as bad as the CBS documents, it would have been, 'Catch Me In Two Days" -- ex-forger and con man Frank Abagnale, made famous by Leonardo DiCaprio in the film "Catch Me If You Can."

Fake But Accurate???
What a headline in the New York Times! Wonder if they have some Kerry staffers are moonlighting as headline writers for the Times?

LA Times must be buying into this "Fake but Accurate" liberalspeak as well...

"Whatever the truth, CBS' real error was trying to prove a point that didn't need to be proved. It doesn't take documents for anyone to realize that Bush pulled strings to get into the National Guard. And, during the Vietnam draft, nobody went into the National Guard out of passion to defend his country. .. But who fed a seeming ringer to CBS, and why did the network fall for it?" -- editorial in today's Los Angeles Times entitled "CBS Was Had."

Oh REALLY? I thought the "real error" was that CBS was producing forged documents in a blatent effort to influence an election with false information. The liberal press just cannot resist getting their slanted jibes in.

Dan Rather's defense of the National Guard memos was far from convincing. "The real question is George Bush's use of the National Guard to escape Vietnam, and the attacks on CBS are just partisan election-year 'politics."

Wrong on both counts, Mr. Rather.

President Bush's 1994 explanation to the Houston Chronicle speaks for itself: "I was not prepared to shoot my eardrum out with a shotgun in order to get a deferment. Nor was I willing to go to Canada. So I chose to better myself by learning how to fly airplanes."

To wit, he found an acceptable way to avoid the war and never pretended otherwise and he never ran on his record in the Air National Guard.

Plus... on two separate occasions the young Lt volunteered for different pilot training that could have resulted in his getting sent to war. Both times he was turned down.

And BTW... the military very much discouraged sons of elected officials from serving in any capacity that might result in them becoming POWs because of the possibility the VC would use them for propaganda purposes.

The REAL question Danny Boy is why you decided to risk your credibility and reputation for Kerry?

You have a right to your own opinions - You do not have a right to your own facts!
