Mr. Pot? Meet Mr. Kettle

Apparently, what's good for the gander isn't good for the goose.

Five Texas Republicans are among the members of Congress demanding that CBS retract its story about President Bush's Vietnam-era service in the Texas Air National Guard amid allegations that documents used for the story are forgeries.

"Let's face it. When it comes to CBS News' reporting on this, this story is big on flaws and light on fact," Johnson said in a statement today. "You have to wonder, what happened to fairness and accuracy?"

Indeed. YT's sure, positively positive, that these same Repugnicans felt similarly when the Swift Liars where smearing John Kerry all over hell and back, right? Right?
Smith, one of the Texans who signed the letter, said "the American people deserve to have the facts, not biased stories, so they can make up their own minds about whom to support."

"Free people are best served by a fair and objective news media," said Smith, who has not served in the military.

Gawd! Does he mean 'fair and balanced' like his favorite propaganda channel? Who. Does. He. Think. He. Is. Fooling?!!!!

All I've been thinking about during this memo mess is how quickly the press has picked up on the other side and how slow they were to react to the SBV folks.

Thanks for keeping up with things while the rest of us are slacking. I love reading your comments on the latest.

I know what you mean, re the SBVT fiasco and the slow media coverage of what's become Memogate.

Honestly, I'm sick of both. It's all right-wing bullcrap meant to distract us from the carnage playing out in Iraq.

If the fucking media would ever fucking focus on what really matters, the coalition forces and the innocent Iraqis who are dying by the handfuls daily, George W. Bush would be thrown from the WH BEFORE November 2. The man is a war criminal and should be put to pasture.

/end rant!
