What a hero!

Of course, Lurch also has the leftoid media on the case - Kerry Corps Plays Defense:
The WashPost headline on the Swift Boat vets ad today is "McCain Criticizes Ad Attacking Kerry on Vietnam War Record." On the Post home page, it's merely "McCain Defends Kerry Again." Not only does this obscure the fact that it's Vietnam veterans who served with Kerry making the charges, it almost completely ignores the charges. Isn't this a second-day headline? It's either that, or a very biased way of telling viewers "Warning! Scurrilous Ad! McCain Denounces! Don't Pay Attention!" The story doesn't even address what the ad says until paragraph 8, and it does not include one statement from the Swift Boat vets and not one quote from the ad itself. A disgraceful performance.
Maybe the WaPo was afraid of the sleazy lawyers?
