From Pajamas Media:
Sen. John Kerry (D-Hanoi) must be really worried about how badly the Democrats are losing the argument on government spending. He took to MSNBC to goad the media into censoring the opinions and statements of people with whom he disagrees (and who happen to have the facts on their side). The irony of his having made such an argument on an openly ideological network seems to have been lost on Sen. Kerry.
SEN. JOHN KERRY: “And I have to tell you, I say this to you politely. The media in America has a bigger responsibility than it’s exercising today. The media has got to begin to not give equal time or equal balance to an absolutely absurd notion just because somebody asserts it or simply because somebody says something which everybody knows is not factual.”…
Translation – if you MSMers know what’s good for you, you’ll stop allowing any dissenting voices to appear. We can’t have those hicks and bitter clingers out there getting their views across. Don’t you realize that we Democrats could be crushed next year if the truth keeps coming out?
Its not like Kerry has been a tribune of truth, you know? He is the guy, after all, who did say our brave men and women in Vietnam were acting like Genghis Khan…so, slanders have fallen easily from his lips. And, at any event, shouldn’t it be up to the people to listen to all voices and decide for themselves who is right?
Not to our liberals, it would seem…because if the people hear differing opinions, then they are sure to reject the liberal view.
