Agenda, Low Grades & Snobbery...
My cancellation was really just a “making a statement” sort of thing since I was reading the LA Times on-line and continue to do so. Just because the paper is a liberal, or should I say leftist, outlet does not mean that I should quit reading it. I just make sure that I take any article with a heaping handful of salt. You’ve got to pay attention to the enemy to know what he is saying. Here’s an example of what I’m talking about when I say the paper’s news reflect an agenda.
Today’s LA Times has an article entitled, “Kerry Makes His Military, Medical File Available.” The article is based upon the military files finally released to the Boston Globe. Mind you, the Globe got the files not the LA Times, and therefore only the Globe really knows what is in them. It is alleged that there is no damaging information about Kerry’s wartime experience. So, the question is why did Kerry refuse to release the files during the presidential campaign? The Globe answers the question in its article, here, wherein we learn that Kerry is no great scholar while at Yale and that he had a slightly lower grade score than Pres. Bush. See my previous posting on Kerry's grades here.
Despite the following LA Times statement, “But Kerry's reluctance to provide easy access to records that buttressed his war resume remains one of the more puzzling aspects of his campaign strategy.” The paper’s article had nothing in it referencing the grades. They will undoubtedly argue that the real story is that nothing untoward was learned about Kerry’s military stint. I searched the entire edition for any mention of the Kerry Yale grades. Are you surprised that none were found? I wasn’t. The Times does not want you to know that Kerry is no intellectual giant. The news of Kerry’s Yale grades is a blow to the intellectual snobbery of the leftist portion of the Democratic party. Despite all their campaign rhetoric, it turns out that their champion is not a great scholar. But, he is a loser in the hopeful presidential arena. And, that’s a good thing.
