Hiding Kerry Remarks "Example of the Frenetic Pace of Politics"

Well I stand corrected. The Wrapper did publish something on Wednesday about Kerry's famous comments about being stuck in Iraq if you're not smart. While perusing the DFW web site, I came across the entry in the Editor's Blog where they explain how they really, truly didn't try to hide any mention of Kerry's remarks.

Actually, we did carry something, on Page A11, but we displayed it in such a way that it was difficult for readers to find. The article ran without a headline in the bottom corner of the News Focus page, which was dedicated to the campaign.

DFW Finally Publishes Kerry Story, But Buries It

As I noted yesterday, the Wrapper managed to avoid publishing a story about John Kerry's remarks where he insinuated that only stupid people who don't work had end up in the military in Wednesday's print edition. They finally managed to publish an article on Thursday, but not anywhere near the front page. Instead, it was buried on page A7 at the bottom.

And of course, true to form, Kerry continues to find ways to make excuses for what he said.

Kerry, who announced earlier that he was abandoning campaign appearances for Democratic candidates, said in a brief statement that regretted that has comments to a campaign rally Monday had been "misinterpreted to imply anything negative about those in uniform."

Fish Wrapper Completely Ignores Kerry's "Stupid Military" Remarks

Well, John Kerry's gone and stuck his foot in his mouth again. While making a speech to students at Pasadena City College yesterday, Kerry made the following statement:

You know education, if you make the most of it, and you study hard, and you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq.

And, as was to be expected, two things happened:

  1. Kerry made every attempt to defend his remarks and say he really didn't say what he said.
  2. the MSM made every attempt to gloss over and play down the story.

The Wrapper Gets In Swift Boat Smear

It's been two years, and still the Wrapper manages to slip in how John Kerry was "victimized" in the 2004 election. In the Thursday News Focus section, Steve Mayes writes a piece about how the GOP has supposedly "let Mike Erickson drift" in his race against Darlene Hooley in the race for Oregon's 5th district.

Towards the end of the article, Mayes mentions some funding Erickson received from the Economic Freedom Fund:

Erickson got some help a few weeks ago from the conservative Economic Freedom Fund, bankrolled by Texas homebuilder Bob Perry. The group, known for its "Swift boat" attack ads in 2004 that distorted John Kerry's military record, started running a pair of powerful anti-Hooley television commercials and mailing several negative fliers.
