We now know why the Paper Formerly Known As The Paper of Record has waited so long to report on Senator Kerry’s Excellent Southeast Asia Adventure. They had to gather enough chaff to thoroughly obfuscate the issue. Reading this piece, it’s clear that the primary motive is not to report all the available facts, but to put up a solid phalanx against anyone standing in the way of John Effing Kerry becoming the next president. I’m sure that bloggers with much more time than I will dissect it line by disingenuous-and-one-sided line.
And so the media suck up to the Democrats, and associated decline in its credibility, continues.
[Update on Friday morn, and ignoring the brouhaha in the comments section]
The article accomplishes something that I would have thought impossible just two days ago. It makes the L.A. Times’s coverage of the Swift Boat Vets look (almost) like responsible journalism.
That’s gotta hurt.
