Remember the steady drumbeat in the mainstream media even about the non-issue of President Bush's National Guard service? Just imagine what the media would have done to Bush if he had the baggage that Kerry had! Dan Rather would have been laughing and snorting with "Genghis Khan" references in every newscast; the media would have endlessly played footage of Bush heaving medals over the White House fence; the interview in which he confessed "yes, yes, I committed atrocities contrary to the Geneva Conventions," would have been played ad infinitum. In short, the media would have buried Bush if he had Kerry's record.
In conclusion, Kerry benefited immeasurably from a protective media that largely shielded his 1971 Congressional testimony, VVAW membership, questionable medals, and military discharge, et al. In the presence of a neutral media, Bush would have won by a landslide. Only a media that fawned over Kerry with kid gloves-while attempting to pummel Bush with iron fists-made it close.

Now I know why I always found Moyers confusing........he was delusional!
I'm guessing that being part of that final 30% which keeps on voting democratic must feel sort of like being a rat which didn't get off the Titanic in time...
What was the delusional part?
You see, most of the media is profoundly liberal, votes that way, and seeks to influence the electorate so that it will follow them.
What about the sky being blue, or the theory that wild bears go to the bathroom in the woods? How much documentation would you need for those kinds of concepts?
what's been done to death in other threads.
