When will the so-called unbiased news media level with the American people regarding Sen. John F. Kerry? All we read in the newspapers and see on TV hypes the senator’s military service. While he served with distinction in Vietnam, he also discredited himself by his actions as an organizer for the Vietnam Veterans Against the War.
This organization was one of America’s most radical pro-communist groups. It appears Lt. (junior grade) Kerry left the Navy early and embarked on his crusade to denigrate the military. Along with fellow traveler, “Hanoi Jane” Fonda, and other disgruntled members of the VVAW, they continued their antiwar activities. Now, “Hanoi Jane” comes out in Kerry’s defense, claiming, “I’m tired of the government lying. I’m tired of people desperately pulling out anything they can to hurt another candidate, and I think that the American people feel that way too,” she said. “It’s a bunch of hogwash.”
I don’t know where “Hanoi Jane” has been living lately, or for that matter on just what planet, but her comments are laughable. How are we to believe anything she has to say after her well-documented, antiwar, anti-American activities? Maybe, just maybe, the mainstream media will give the American people their unbiased opinion after perusing Kerry’s book, “The New Soldier.” After all, fair is fair, so give the President Bush non-story a break and concentrate on Sen. Kerry’s absence of character.
