Four years ago, the Boston Globe distinguished itself by its bombshell revelation that John Kerry (our junior senator; you may have heard of him) wasn’t really Irish. Had Kerry ever claimed to be Irish? Umm… no. But a few people (reporters? aides?) could be found who had accidentally claimed that Kerry was Irish, and the senator hadn’t corrected them.
Thank God we have newspapers like the Globe that stand ready to protect voters from such sinister fraud. Perhaps those crusading reporters will take an interest in this.
Pandering or deception? We report; you decide.
