RE: To Kerry Supporters / Smear Campaign

..and that's a legit complaint and a legit way to influence a MEDIA company--throught its shareholders. Using the force of gummint to influence media is extraordinarily dangerous.

I think its beyond ironic that lefties use threat of lawsuits against a media company. The astonishing duplicity of it,....wow.

Whatever cachet the word, "documentary" ever had has been thoroughly trashed by this crappolla and the stink-pile extruded by Michael Moore. Talk about destroying a genre. Now whenever I hear the word, "Documentary" I'm going to think, "propaganda".

They are not getting suyed by "leftists" they ae getting sued by people who claim they are being libeled. I haven't heard of any campaign by "leftists" taking court action - its all the same stuff the Repubs do when their ox gets gored - public pressure.

On the thread where I am arguing with some moron, I posted a link to a Hitler speech. You should read it - he sounds like Bush.

Kerry and the Dems threatened TV stations that aired the first Swift Boat Ads with law suits. Michael Moore also said that they would sue anyone that proported that the claims in his fairytale to be false. To date no lawsuits have been filed by Moore yet nearly every point in his flick has been shown to be false.

I did a search on what you claimed, and the only place I could find something even remotely close to what you assert were some references to an article in "human events online" a far-right website. Do you have some kind of link to a reputable news source that says Kerry threatened a law suit?

Also, are you saying absolutely nothing in Moore's film was true? Have you actually even seen it? Do you have some kind of proof that Moore threatened lawsuits on those who would prove him false? That sounds completely far fetched.

FYI, even a 17 year old can see through Moore's lies.

Check this out - it's good reading.

I recall hearing that report on the evening news for several days. It was the old, 'unnamed sources' type quote that I hate on general principals. I think there was a letter sent to a bunch of stations. I don't know who sent it but I think it was some law firm that claimed to represent some Democratic Party operation.

It had the expected result: Lots of media interest in the advert and repeated running of it during network news cycles. When will politicians ever learn?

Surely you don't want to reprise all that, do you?

I used the following words for a Google search:
swiftboat kerry warning stations

Here are a few of the responses. The last one is a copy of a fax. I'm sure with due diligence, you can find even more.
