Shepard Smith Maligns Swiftees?
Apparently in a new
Playboy interview.Asked about Internet stories that "lack veracity" but which serve as news. Smith replies, "Swift Boats," as if the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth had been engaged not in getting out the truth about John Kerry's military career and dubious war crimes charges, but in smearing the Democratic Senator and 2004 Democratic presidential candidate.
Let me remind people that I spent more time investigating John Kerry and the Swiftees in 2004 than all but about five people on the planet (and Shepard Smith isn't one of them), and that I could never find a single case where the Swiftees lacked veracity, but I certainly found many where Kerry's claims had that problem.
