61. The corporate MEDIA 'blackout' of August was deliberate. Kerry countered swifts heavily in August
but no news network would broadcast his speech attacking them in front of the Firefighters Convention.

No news network even put into rotation for their daily coverage the clip of Kerry attacking the swifts and challenging Bush to stop hiding behind them and to debate their services publicly. Why?

Dan Ratler admitted last year that corporate media was protecting Bush throughout that time because they expected favorable FCC rulings in a Bush second term.


Few in the left blogosphere even picked up on the speech so the counterattack was never furthered by the left on the internet or by the few left voices we had in the media.
