Eric Boehlert asks the right questions

Why did the press ignore Ted Kennedy in 2002? by Eric Boehlert is dead on in pointing out that Senator Kennedy's 2002 speech questioning the rush to war in Iraq was ignored yet his recent health troubles merited copious amounts of coverage. Eric writes, "Talk about a greatest-hits performance. Kennedy nailed virtually every major problem and shortfall that emerged in the wake of the invasion. Yet in real time, the press, which was producing voluminous reports and commentary about the possible war, showed only superficial interest in Kennedy's prophetic comments." Amen! John Gunn
