KERRY TO THE RESCUE

KERRY TO THE RESCUE

Troubled by the possible shuttering of his hometown paper, Sen. John Kerry reached out to the Boston Globe on Tuesday, then called for Senate hearings to address the woes of the nation's print media.

"America's newspapers are struggling to survive, and while there will be serious consequences in terms of the lives and financial security of the employees involved, including hundreds at the Globe, there will also be serious consequences for our democracy where diversity of opinion and strong debate are paramount," Mr. Kerry said.

Maybe Kerry should read the Internet where real diversity of opinion resides. He knows that any paper saved by the government will become a mouthpiece for government intervention and that is just what he wants.

How this is even constitutional I'll never know.

Exactly right. What is Kerry without the Boston Globe telling readers what Kerry is. The only time I read a newspaper is when I get a free one at a hotel, and then only to remind myself what biased crap it is. Internet and books.
