    I'd say that all in all this is hurting kerry's chances even more than they already are.

    This line from that article is pretty telling:

    No, the new story line is that CBS didn't adequately do a background investigation on the story. That Burkett may be some kind of nut is purely secondary.

    Wow, I never viewed news this way: A news company uncovers something questionable in Bush's past, but the thing most morally questionable about it, is that Kerry uses it for his campaign.

    Wait. They did the same thing before: Clinton betrays his wife, but what makes the news is that he hasn't openly admitted to it.

    Why doesn't it make the news, that Bush can't admit to being a deserter? No one believes him anyway, so why can't he have the guts stand to his past? It should be totally irrelevant for the election anyway - what counts are the four past years, he's got to defend enough about them, why dig up the past?

    Kerry is using it in his campaign? Where did that happen, I must have missed it.

    You know, Dan Rather would probably not be wiping egg off his face right now if he'd taken the same tack that the media generally did with the Swift Boat Vets business, which was to report on the SBV and their accusations rather than represent the SBV accusations themselves as truth.
