The Shootin' Fish In a Barrel Trilogy (Concluded):
Trois - Absence Is Presence (Peace Out, Derrida):
This morning, on CNN, the VP for Corporate Relations for Sinclair Broadcasting had this to say in defending the media corporation's decision to run the anti-Kerry documentary Stolen Honor on all of its stations: "[T]he accusations coming from Terry McAuliffe and others, is it because they are some elements of this that may reflect poorly on John Kerry? That it's somehow an in-kind contribution of George Bush? If you use that logic and reasoning, that means every car bomb in Iraq would be an in-kind contribution to John Kerry. Weak job performance ratings that came out last month would have been an in- kind contribution to John Kerry. And that's just nonsense. This is news. I can't change the fact that these people decided to come forward today. The networks had this opportunity over a month ago to speak with these people. They chose to suppress them. They chose to ignore them. They are acting like Holocaust deniers, pretending these men don't exist."
Beyond the bizarre idea that a suicide bomb in Iraq is a John Kerry commercial, yeah, why didn't the media cover the Swift Boat Veterans for "Truth" back in the day? It's a pity that these guys get virtually no coverage from anyone in the two months or so since they've come forward. Yep, must be that liberal media.
And, of course, you know, and why not, that believing John Kerry deserved his medals in Vietnam is somehow equivalent with denying the horrible, screaming deaths of six million Jews. Damn, these motherfuckers know how to maintain credibility, no?
