The rest of the story ….

With the approaching national election, it is increasingly apparent that the media are not reporting a balanced picture of Senator Kerry and his demonstrated record. His well-documented militant, anti-American actions in the ’70s have not been represented by the networks or other national media.

Even the very men he served closely with in Vietnam have tried to bring to national attention the details of Kerry’s actions they witnessed that render him “unfit to serve as commander in chief,” but obviously this is not viewed as newsworthy. This is a rather telling indictment by those who knew him extremely well. John Q. Public has the right to be aware of these important facts and the national press are obligated to report it.

And now, according to WorldNetDaily, during 1995-2001 Mrs. Kerry gave more than $4 million to the Tides Foundation that supports numerous radical groups, including International Action Center that has offered to defend Saddam Hussein. Surely, these items would be of interest to John Q. in deciding who deserves to be in the White House as defender of our nation’s interests! It is high time the public has, as Paul Harvey says, “the rest of the story.”
