What's on the News?

I'll bet you haven't heard much lately on the news about terrorism, the economy or healthcare. But you have heard a lot about Vietnam and what happened or didn't happen there more than 30 years ago.

As this all-important presidential election draws near, we aren't talking about the president's record or Kerry's qualifications. Our news is filled with yet another kabuki show designed to play on emotions and distract from rational analysis.

The media is entirely complicit in this; the whole Swift Boat thing should've died weeks ago because they are flat out liars, if the media did not continue to treat their accusations as possible truths.

Here's a good analysis from the Campaign Desk at the Columbia Journalism Review about this fiasco. It shows you what true idiots and tools most of the media are.

And more from the incomparable Howler.
