No story here...

The Washington Post has an editorial, waving away the charges of the Swift boat veterans, because they received money from a big Republican donor. SO, no investigation needed. No "reporting" needed. No story.

But remember when a chorus of Dems charged that President Bush was "AWOL" on his Air National Guard service, that was NEWS! They even went so far as to interview a dentist to see if his signature on a dental exam might be forged!

And when the charges against the President were found to be baseless, that was NOT news. (My debunking here and here.)

And if, by some stupefyingly unlikely chance, the 250 Swift Boat vets turn out to be well-organized conspiracy of liars, and their stories collapse, THAT WILL BE NEWS!
