"As Talking Points has pointed out, the most important thing about the Dan Rather/CBS News situation was that fired producer Mary Mapes was in close contact with the Kerry campaign. Imagine if Kerry had won the election--you simply can't have a presidential vote influenced by journalistic fraud. You would think everyone in the media would get this, right? But an analyst on MSNBC blamed part of the CBS fiasco on a Fox News executive. And the Los Angeles Times editorialized against Fox News as well, suggesting Fox should have been more skeptical of claims made by the Swift Boat Veterans. There's no reason to inject Fox News into the CBS problem, and we were very skeptical of the Swift Boat tactics. So why is the LA Times misleading its readers once again? The answer is that paper and others in the far left zone hate Fox News and will say just about anything to try to marginalize us. The big picture here is the truth. How can you make an informed decision if major newspapers are flat-out lying to you? This is not the first time the LA Times has attacked Fox News, but this editorial is truly outrageous. I challenge Michael Kinsley, who runs the editorial page, to come on the Factor and explain himself."
