CAMPAIGN DRAMA ROCKS DEMOCRATS: KERRY FIGHTS OFF MEDIA PROBE OF RECENT ALLEGED INFIDELITY, RIVALS PREDICT RUIN

Here we go again. At least it's breaking before "Super Tuesday part II"

Comments

the sad thing about this is that it's the exact same details (female AP reporter) that the republicans attempted to smear clinton with back in '92.

i'm going to doubt it's a coincidence.

this is the type of "exclusive" real journalists deplore, all innuendo and no facts.

Re:

well, it turned out to be true for Clinton, but people seemed not to mind (maybe Perot helped, too?).

So far, this story hasn't hit any real media. How did it go mainstream last time? Tabloids? With FoxNews, maybe the transition might be faster.

Re:

this was post-gennifer flowers. it was just an accusation that had no merit, but actually potentially harmful because there was only one female AP reporter at that time.

according to atrios, fox news has already decided to air the story. wonderful standards. atrios is having fun now, linking to the national enquirer story reporting bush's alleged affair :) i hope the kerry campaign is willing to go dirty if it'snecessary. the republicans will continue with this kind of crap unless it's checked.

drudge started the monica story, but now we all know he had a direct source for that one. this story s pure tabloid.

Re:

And the story continues. One of the great downfalls of the Internet and the 24-hour per day news cycle...

Re:

it's just turning on itself now with people wondering how accurate the 'source' could be if everyone's denying they ever even met. there's also this little bit which erodes the innuendo even more.

of course, there's also larry flynt's plan to publish a book detailing bush obtaining an abortion for a girlfriend back in the 70's. the republicans are denouncing his actions as dirty while also being primary muckrakers, a nice bit of cognitive dissonance.
Josh-o! You are the best. Thanks for the knives. I was starting to worry about the goodwill knives. They seemed fine for college and whatnot, but since living with people with real knives, I just don't think I could go back. So thanks, again!

have fun chopping stuff into pieces!
