25. Ahhh, I'm trying to understand why you're so upset & I think I see why
I don't think it was a "stunt FAKED for the press". I know beyond the shadow of a doubt that Kerry is an avid hunter.

IMO, I think he FLAUNTED the hunting episode, not FAKED it. It sure looked to me like he made the most out of that opportunity with the specific mannerisms as to the way the whole thing came off. The timing of it..and the perception of it...couldn't have come off any worse than it did, slanted press or no slanted press. Whether or not it was any kind of a stunt, they should've known that that's the way it would come off, IMO.
