42. Rocknation Faults AdelphiaNet Camp for Piss-Poor Journalism
Edited on Mon Mar-24-08 12:01 PM by rocknation
Never mind the original poster's headline--the STORY'S original headline doesn't have anything to do with the story, either! How come the reporter didn't notice that the Obama camp's negativity was IN RESPONSE to the Clinton camp's--because then the story would have no reason for being?

...Bill Clinton told a group of veterans: "I think it would be a great thing if we had an election year where you had two people who loved this country and were devoted to the interest of this country"...Retired Gen. Merrill "Tony" McPeak, a co-chairman of Obama's campaign, took offense and accused Clinton of being divisive and trying to question Obama's patriotism.

Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, a Clinton supporter...said Bill Clinton was saying what many people think..."And...they launch this all-out attack trying to take an inference out of President Clinton's words that no fair person could take..."

Oh, so I should have inferred that it was HILLARY who Bill was accusing of being unpatriotic!

...New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, a former presidential candidate who endorsed Obama last week...(said) "(T)he campaign has gotten too negative too many personal attacks, too much negativity that is not resounding with the public."
How does that translate into "Supporters of Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama BOTH faulted Obama's campaign...?" If I may "take an inference" as a "fair person," I believe Richardson is faulting BOTH camps.

"If they want to tone it down, don't accuse someone of McCarthyism," Rendell said.
And if THEY don't want be accused of McCarthyism, they shouldn't accuse someone of not loving their country!
