NY times does it again
    #3028966 - 08/20/04 05:04 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I'm not sure this link will work because I'm a member but here goes
http://www.nytimes.com/2004/08/20/politics/campaign/20swift.html

This is really too much. A full page article devoted to mostly revealing the authors and supporters of "Unfit For Duty" as Republicans. Gasp. What did they expect, Tibetan monks? They then try to call into question the statements of the veterans cited. In one case they mention George Elliott, who signed an affidavit attacking Kerry. They say that he was quoted by the Boston Globe as regretting that he had signed the affidavit. They then say that he signed a second affidavit reaffirming the first one. What they don't say is that he denied the quote, that they own the Boston Globe and that the reporter who wrote the article is a contributing writer on the official Kerry campaign book. They essentially cited themselves to attempt to discredit this guy. They then go on to say, "Mr. Elliott has refused to speak publicly since then." DUH. What would you do if you were Elliott?

The fucking Times should have to register as 527 organization. How come they didn't do this with F911 and the rampant deceptions in it?

Reminds me of how they run the war on drugs propaganda machine... Drugs are bad, m'kay... see this monkey smoking dope... we dropped a 1000 kilo block of lead on him and he died... see, drugs are bad because they kill, m'kay... just like this monkey that died from smoking dope.

Because they are objective journalists. (tongue in cheek for the humor impared)
