The political angle

As if the ethics, moral and legal intricacies of the Terri Schiavo case were not enough, there is also the political aspect. This level of the battle for Terri's life is growing out of proportion and promises to eclipse all the others after Terri's passing.
Once again, it's impossible for me to play catch-up. But it appears that the liberal leftist main stream media has not learned their lesson from RatherGate.

HINDROCKET demurs: Nonsense. I agree with Michelle that in its current form, the anonymous accusation carries little or no weight. But that isn't the point. The New York Times reported approximately a week ago that DEMOCRATIC AIDES distributed the memo, while claiming it came from the Republicans. Has anyone asked the Times reporter to identify the Democrats he saw passing out the memo? I haven't. That would at least be a starting point toward figuring out where the memo actually came from.
In the meantime, there is not a bit of evidence connecting the memo to any Republican, and, for all of the reasons we have repeatedly spelled out on this site, there are excellent reasons to believe it is a hoax perpetrated by still-unidentified Democrats.


It seems that The Big Trunk and Rocketman did not see eye to eye on this subject this morning. I'm a little confused by Trunk's position. But it was Power Line that won the Blog of the Year award from Time magazine, thus earning them enormous credibility. The MSM has been silent on the lack of authenticity of this talking points memo. So far ABC News and the Washington Post have not run a corrective on their changed headlines.

We all saw what happened to Dan Rather and CBS News from making this error of stubbornness.

We've got to keep beating the drum. Better late than never, in my case.

    The MSM learned a lot from Rathergate. It is better to smear America with a fictitious person(deep throat) than with a real person that has been dead 22 years. ABC is going the "deep throat" route. Hard to cross examin an imaginary person.

    Precisely! ABC is not going Rathergate they are going "deep throat". And therefore they will not suffer as Viacom did.
