  • ABC Gets Its Pound Of Corpse For Inauguration Coverage

    Captain's Quarters ^ | January 21, 2005 | Captain Ed
    Two days ago I posted about ABC's effort to find a military funeral taking place on Inauguration Day for a casualty from Iraq, presumably to "balance" the coverage of George Bush and his speech. Their web site invited anyone who knew of such a funeral to send the information to ABC News -- they even provided a web form for submission (and Doc Weasel has it better here) -- so that they could exploit the death in order to somehow shame Bush on his inauguration. After Power Line and I wrote about this and the blogosphere erupted into protest, the...

    [snip] But does the DNC really want to open a can of worms over what can be aired under the guise of news? After all, many news groups surely would fail such a test, their news coverage rendered no more than "in-kind" contributions to their favored candidates. * Last month, CBS News ran a report claiming that President Bush shirked his Air National Guard duty, relying in large part on documents that were later revealed to be almost certainly forged. * This month, ABC News political director Mark Halperin virtually ordered his staff to take a pro-Kerry tilt in their...

    Seemingly in response to Mark Halperin’s Call to Arms to get John Kerry elected, Ted Koppell went on the offensive on Thursday against the Swiftboat Vets in an attempt to discredit their claims that John Kerry embellished his war record to seek medals. Koppell focused on just one incident where he felt he had good evidence to directly contradict the Swiftboat Vets claims. Unfortunately for Koppell, the “evidence” he cited was testimony from Vietnamese peasants given under the watchful gaze of Communist Government minders. I don’t know if Mr. Koppell has ever been in such a situation himself, but I...

    Excerpted... Contrast the way J&J handled the Tylenol crisis with the way CBS is handling the Rathergate/Memogate crisis. In case, you’ve been living in a hole, CBS aired a story featuring documents purportedly from the Texas Guard that were damaging to President Bush. It took very little time for the documents to be shown to be obvious forgeries, and sloppy ones at that. It seems pretty clear they were typed using Microsoft Word and printed to Adobe Acrobat, something not exactly available in the early 1970s. As a news organization, CBS found itself in a box. Either they admit to...

    Fifteen minutes before the second televised Presidential debate, on the night of Friday, Oct. 8, the stoic voice of anchor Brit Hume came over the Fox News Channel’s control-room intercom. "Do you know about this Mark Halperin memo?" he asked the room full of producers, who were hunched over the dials and standing before a tall bank of flickering TV screens. "Can we talk about it on the air? It’s on Drudge. It’s all over Drudge." In a leaked memo, Mr. Halperin, the ABC News political director, had suggested that the network should be more critical of President Bush than...

    Three weeks before the election, ABC News Political Director Mark Halperin apparently doesn't think the campaign season is going too well. He thinks ABC News must help the electorate by sorting out the relevant facts from the spin; holding the liars accountable; and openly campaign for the election of John Kerry — stuff like that. Mr. Halperin issued these instructions to ABC News employees last week in a memo, which was subsequently leaked to Internet news-guru Matt Drudge just before Friday night's second presidential debate. ABC News' Charles Gibson, coincidentally, moderated the debate.

    It’s been a tough slog for old media of late. CBS NEWS and Dan Rather were nabbed by the new media as they attempted to use fraudulent documents to harm the president’s re-election chances. NBC Nightly News anchor Tom Brokaw blasted the new media for pointing out the CBS smear job saying, “There's a political jihad against Dan Rather and CBS,” and adding “It's an attempt to demonize CBS news. It's a demagoguery unleashed on the Internet.” Dan Rather proved willing to even use fraudulent documents to help John Kerry. ABC NEWS Political Director Mark Halperin recently sent a memo...

    An internal memo written by ABC News director Mark Halperin admonishes his news staff not to "artificially hold both sides 'equally' accountable" in the second Bush-Kerry presidential debate. The memo, dated the morning of the second Bush-Kerry debate, cites two articles critical of the Bush campaign (In New Attacks, Bush Pushes Limit on the Facts, by Adam Nagourney and Richard Stevenson, NYT, and Bush vs. the news, by Howard Fineman at MSNBC.) "The current Bush attacks on Kerry involve distortions and taking things out of context in a way that goes beyond what Kerry has done," Haperin wrote, referring to...
