175. Except the reporters on the bus say he did not
Oliphant was not on the bus. Oliphant says Clark said it, yes, but he does not prove it and cannot know it without confirming it with those who were present. If you look at the Columbia Journalism Review piece in this thread, they checked with the reporters who were on the bus, as did Lizza and as did Conason and others. Oliphant nowhere says he checked with anybody; he simply repeats the Drudge lie. The CSPAN issue is entirely separate. Not even Oliphant says Clark said anything about Kerry at all at that rally in New Hampshire. It's all about Bush and his being AWOL. We know he said something about Kerry a month later on the bus, which Oliphant refers to incorrectly, but the reporters who were there confirm Clark said nothing about Kerry and an intern. This was a way bigger smear on Kerry, God knows, but it was also a smear on Clark.
