    XXXXX DRUDGE REPORT XXXXX SUN APRIL 25, 2004 16:52:38 ET XXXXX

    1971 VIDEO: KERRY ADMITS THROWING OWN MEDALS; CONTRADICTS CURRENT CLAIMS

    In an interview published Friday in the LOS ANGELES TIMES, Dem presidential hopeful John Kerry claimed he "never ever implied" that he threw his own medals during a Hill protest in 1971 to appear as an antiwar hero.

    But a new shock video shows John Kerry -- in his own voice -- saying he did!

    ABC's GOOD MORNING AMERICA is set to rock the political world Monday morning with an airing of Kerry's specific 1971 boast, sources tell the DRUDGE REPORT.

    The video was made by a local news station in 1971.

    It directly contradicts Kerry's own website headline: "RIGHTWING FICTION: John Kerry threw away his medals during a Vietnam war protest."

    Kerry's campaign refused comment Sunday afternoon, citing a policy not to respond to the DRUDGE REPORT.

    What is a Drudge Report?


    "Some have learnt many Tricks of sly Evasion, Instead of Truth they use Equivocation, And eke it out with mental Reservation, Which is to good Men an Abomination."

    I don't have to attend every argument I'm invited to.

      Do you think the US election campaign could now boil down to who has the worst Vietnam war record? Who who lied best about the time in Vietnam?

        Well, during the Clinton presidancy, Kerry was quoted as saying we should forget about Vietnam, you see Clinton dogeded the draft as many other politicans. But now that there's a political advantage for him, he's touting his record like no tomorrow. If anything, he's asking for it.

          from Wikipedia:

          Matt Drudge (born October 27, 1966) is an Internet journalist and muckraker.

          Drudge's web site, Drudge Report, founded in 1994, consists primarily of links to stories about politics, entertainment, and various current events, and to many popular columnists, although Drudge occasionally authors a story of his own. Drudge started his website on a 486 computer from an apartment in Hollywood, California. Today, Drudge maintains the website from his condominium in Miami, Florida along with his longtime friend and associate Andrew Breitbart based in Los Angeles. Drudge utilizes connections with industry and media insiders to break stories sometimes before they hit the mainstream media.

          Drudge first received national attention in 1996 when he broke the news that Jack Kemp would be Republican Bob Dole's running mate in the 1996 presidential election. In 1998, Drudge again made national waves when he broke the news that Newsweek magazine had information on an inappropriate relationship between "a White House intern" and President Bill Clinton (the Monica Lewinsky scandal), but was withholding publication. After Drudge's report, Newsweek published the story.

          Some critics note that Drudge's contribution to journalism is questionable, saying that the only stories he actually breaks are completely conceived, researched, funded, and written by other reporters. A federal judge noted in a judgment on a slander lawsuit, which ended in Drudge's favor, that Drudge is not a "reporter, news gatherer or journalist". Drudge's most famous achievement, the breaking of the Monica Lewinsky story, offended editors because by publishing details of the story, Drudge essentially made an editorial decision that overrode Newsweek's. Drudge's politics are unabashedly conservative, and he often selects as the lead story of his website articles that promote the anti-abortion stance, praise prominent conservatives, or criticize prominent liberals; this has led some critics to call him a mouthpiece of the conservative establishment in the United States. However, Drudge has repeatedly attempted to distance himself from establishment conservatives, arguing that his politics more accurately reflect libertarianism.

          Drudge also hosts a weekly Sunday night talk radio showó"The only time anyone will let me on the air," he claims. Drudge hosted a short-lived television show on the Fox News Channel starting in June 1998. He also wrote a book in 2000 titled Drudge Manifesto (Hardcover ISBN 0451201507, Paperback ISBN 0451204913).

          An investigation by Business 2.0 magazine estimated that Drudge's website pulled in $3,500 a day in advertising revenues. Combined with his radio show and subtracting his minor server costs, the magazine estimated that Drudge pulls in $800,000 a year with his simple website.

          An article in The Miami Herald said Drudge estimates he pulls in $1.2 million a year from his website and radio show. Before founding his website, Drudge worked in the gift shop of CBS television, where he was apparently privy to some inside gossip, part of the inspiration for founding the Drudge Report.

            I just like it when these people are caught in a lie, especially when there's video.

                  CONGRESSIONAL RECORD



                  LEGISLATIVE PROPOSALS RELATING TO THE WAR IN SOUTHEAST ASIA
                  THURSDAY, APRIL 22, 1971

                  UNITED STATES SENATE;
                  COMMITTEE ON FOREIGN RELATIONS,
                  Washington, D.C.

                  The committee met, pursuant to notice, at 11:05 a.m., in Room 4221, New Senate Office Building, Senator J. W. Fulbright (Chairman) presiding.

                  Present: Senators Fulbright, Symington, Pell, Aiken, Case, and Javits.

                  The CHAIRMAN. The committee will come to order.


                  OPENING STATEMENT
                  The committee is continuing this morning its hearings on proposals relating to the ending of the war in Southeast Asia. This morning the committee will hear testimony from Mr. John Kerry and, if he has any associates, we will be glad to hear from them. These are men who have fought in this unfortunate war in Vietnam. I believe they deserve to be heard and listened to by the Congress and by the officials in the executive, branch and by the public generally. You have a perspective that those in the Government who make our Nation's policy do not always have and I am sure that your testimony today will be helpful to the committee in its consideration of the proposals before us.

                  I would like to add simply on my own account that I regret very much the action of the Supreme Court in denying the veterans the right to use the Mall. [Applause.]

                  I regret that. It seems to me to be but another instance of an insensitivity of our Government to the tragic effects of this war upon our people.
