Truth for the Goose, Slander for the Gander

Oh, That Liberal Media has the Wilmington News Journal tangled in its own crossfire:

From the News Journal op-ed page, 8/23/04:

There is nothing honorable about the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. The group is impugning the integrity of Sen. John Kerry, the Democratic presidential candidate, with well-funded advertising that twists truth with slander and innuendo.

From the News Journal op-ed page, 2/12/04:

Whether it is a tempest in a teapot or a brewing political scandal, President Bush must answer questions about his National Guard service. And the president ought to silence White House spokesman Scott McClellan, who characterized these legitimate questions as "gutter politics" or "trolling for trash."
