MSM Loaded Headline of the Day
Since 'swiftboating' has now become synonymous with underhanded smear tactics in MSMspeak, how about this headline:
Bush Swift Boats Belgium, Congress
April 4, 2007— While Congress is out of session, President Bush flexed his executive power muscle, appointing businessman Sam Fox as U.S. ambassador to Belgium less than a week after his nomination was pulled when Senate Democrats hammered away at him for donating money to a conservative group that helped sink Sen. John Kerry's 2004 presidential campaign.
Kerry and Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn., led Senate Democrats' opposition to Fox, who in 2004 contributed $50,000 to the slanderous Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, which used a series of television ads to undermine Kerry's combat record.
The 'slanderous' Swift Boat Veterans for truth??? Upon what basis were they able to draw such a legal conclusion? The story continues with about 7 paragraphs of quotes from Sens. Dodd and Kerry about how earth shatteringly terrible the appointment is.
Hmmmmm. Let's see if the author of this article, has any biases regarding the 2004 election:
