REQUIRED READING FOR THE DAY
President Bush suffered minor injuries in a bicycle accident last weekend. Wannabe President John Kerry commented about the accident in front of media members (and cameras). "Did the training wheels fall off?" Kerry asked. Mildly amusing, but somewhat inappropriate for a presidential candidate when commenting on his opponent. It would seem that many in the media agree. Curiously, a search of Google News at 11 a.m. EDT showed only 5 stories posted about the remark. Three of the stories were on "right wing" news sites: National Review Online, The Washington Times, and Worldnet Daily. So much for the public's right to know.
