I am not sure what to do, but, it was wrong. They know it, and those who want a fair election know it.

I just caught the end of this. I knew CBS couldn't let this last Sunday go by without taking another swipe at Bush.

So where are all the emails to CBS asking why they didn't address the decimation of the military funding, cutting weapons systems, enlistement, bases in the last decade????

A tired old story. Can't those commie bastards in the media even come up with a fresh idea.

You know, I did not find this until after the show ran, I found nothing on their site and low and behold here is the link.

This was so underhanded even a 2 year old could see through it.

They probably didn't mention that Ketchup Boy would have had them fighting with spitwads if the majority had voted LIKE HIM AGAINST FUNDING.....what a lousy bunch of Loonie Lefties in the MSM.

The FCC ought to take away the licenses of these political DNC-buttboys.......

Bingo. This stuff didn't just disappear since January of 2001. See -BS is the lowest of the low. I never, and I repeat never watch anything on that station. No news, no programming, and most of all no commercials.

What total political hacks. Advertisers, are you reading?

Why even watch it? This is not explosive as CBS thinks.

I am watching the Fear Factor marathon on FX.

When my son went through BCT in 2001, he was told that under Clinton, they often didn't have enough ammunition to even train with. Guess CBS didn't say anything about that, huh?

So far all I can remember from this 60 minutes is that Arnold keeps his "Conan" sword in his office!

Right. I bet they did not bring up Kerry not voting for the 87 Billion. If he had had his way they would have had even less. Parley

CBS must be desparate - a potential law suit if Bush wins and their corruption swepted under the rug if Kerry wins. CBS needs to PAY for the Rather debacle!

of course no mention that this is the military Bush inherited from Clinton who absolutely decimated the military.

Not really. It's no holds barred now, and no depth is too low for them. But I am constantly amazed - and irritated - by people I know who believe this crap and plan to vote for sKerry, based just on hit pieces like this alone, even when the 'news' sources later retract such 'stories'. Dumb a$$es.

Surprised no. I had this sick feeling when I saw the online guide show the CBS segments. They started with the folks who failed an ORDER. They chose to allow others in their stead to take needed products and they thought their lives were more important then oh say the lives of the folks who had to go for them.

I get so mad, then the military guy who acted almost teary eye'd over his ill equipted troops. It was an ad for Kerry and nobocy can tell me otherwise.
