Gomer Kerry did what he should have done at the outset apologize and move ahead. However Gomer Kerry lives in a fantasy world where the unwashed masses aren't smart enough to understand him. Kerry thinks this is nuance but in reality it is just far left arrogance. Make no mistake the joke was intended at our military and reflects Kerry's genuine views and those of the far left like the Duck.
Welcome to the new era where Talk radio will hold the far left accountable. The MSM is a reflection of the neo-stalanist journalism schools. Thus reporting the facts takes a back seat to reporting the correct news. Thus in a Presedential election the MSM did not ask Gomer Kerry about his meeting in Paris with the enemy while a member of the US Naval Reserve, a severe violation of the law. The MSM did not touch upon Kerry's role as the spokesman for Communist thugs in Nicaragua. The MSM did not ask Gomer about when he knew his partner at VVAW Al Hubbard was a fraud and a Communist. No exposes about an anti-American book Gomer Kerry coauthored came from the MSM. We did have forged documents on Bush's National Guard duty, some speculation about DWI but this is typical for the far left.
Kerry and other politicians left of center get a free pass from the media. Maybe Gomer will sit in with Tim Russert who will ask a few tough questions, but that i about all. Hillary will only sit for creampuff interviews, but a Republican has to have every word scrutinized as well as his life story.
The reality is the MSM is shrinking. Every year ratings get smaller and the NYT circulation is dropping. The ratings of Talk radio have increased as Americans are fed up with cookie cutter clones from neocommunist Journalism accademic gulags.
The time will come in the near future where corporate ownership will have to look at the proffit ledger. The public is not being served and has moved elsewhere.
Even Reuters and A/P have felt pressure to clean up their acts. The faked pictures from Lebanon forced the firing of two employees. The pressure came from the EU blog and LGF and the far lefts reign of error is comming to an end.
People like Gomer Kerry can get away with plenty but their serious gaffes will be held up for scrutiny. Will Kerry adjust to the new reality? He won't because he lives in a state where political candidates can betray their country, run brothels out of their homes, fly pages abroad for the purposes of an affair and leave women in cars in rivers.
