News Hour Goes Tabloid

by larre

Jim Lehrer, for reasons which I'll leave for him to explain when Saint Peter asks, on East Coast time is giving John O'Neill a huge amount of News Hour time to attack John Kerry. Still, it's worth watching for the mild mannered Tom Oliphant's seemingly controlled response.

Oliphant for once looked like he was going to get emotional but in the end the Thorazine kicked in and he stayed under control. Essentially, he told O'Neill to his face that the facts "don't come within a country mile" of supporting his charges.

I can wait a day for a transcript but those of you on the West Coast can still catch the Sadly Sensationalist Saga Of The Swift Boat Fraud And How It Snookered The Media and Changed the History of the World.
