Well, yesterday the front page of New York Times featured a
flawed article asserting, "The Iraqi interim government has warned the
United States and international nuclear inspectors that nearly 380 tons of
powerful conventional explosives -- used to demolish buildings, make missile
warheads and detonate nuclear weapons -- are missing from one of Iraq's most
sensitive former military installations. The huge facility, called Al Qaqaa,
was supposed to be under American military control but is now a no man's
land, still picked over by looters as recently as Sunday."

CBS News' "60 Minutes" admitted today they were saving the same
story to air the Sunday before the election.

John Kerry seized on the New York Times headline to launch a
political attack on President Bush, saying U.S. troops "failed to guard
those stockpiles" and that is "one of the great blunders" of the war.

Senator Kerry and the New York Times leave the impression that
these weapons went missing recently and U.S. troops were derilict in their
duty to guard the stockpile--neither of which is true.

Network and cable news programs repeated the incomplete report
and Sen. Kerry's attacks more than 100 times on Monday.

But last night NBC "Nightly News" reported that on April 10,
2003, one day after Baghdad fell, U.S. troops entered Al Qaqaa, accompanied
by an embedded reporter from NBC, and found no such weapons.

It also turns out that our troops have found and destroyed or
are destroying 400,000 tons of weapons and explosives.

There was no mention of either one of these facts in today's New
York Times front page story, which regurgitated yesterday's charges and
Senator Kerry's attacks based on them.

Liberal groups like MoveOn.org have already blasted out e-mails
repeating the discredited report and urging people to vote against President
Bush based on the flawed coverage.

We can not count on the media to set the story straight. We have
to get the truth out to our friends and neighbors ourselves.

I strongly believe in the freedom of the press. But, I don't think that freedom should be so broad that it allows papers like the New York Times to print lies to favor one candidate over another. In fact, if I were Bush, I'd be looking into the possibility of a liable suit against them. .........gfp
