Alexandra Polier speaks, calmly

Polier is the woman who was falsely accused of having an affair with John Kerry.

Her sober, highly readable account is (yet another) indictment of the pathetic echo chamber for non-facts that is the modern media. Read the whole thing.

The Education of Alexandra Polier [New York Metro]

P.S. Chris Lehane, ABC's Chris Vlasto, David Frum and The Sun's Brian Flynn are all bottom-feeding villains.

And don't forget Joe Klein, who oh-so-brilliantly observed:

"There are a whole bunch of things we’re looking into all the time. And there’s an important word here: Drudge. The world really has changed since September 11; the time is past when we’d waste two years on late-night pizza deliveries."

Listen, you self-righteous nitwit, there were important and serious foreign and domestic policy issues and crises in the '90s as well!! But you and your scandal-mongering friends in the press were all too eager to slurp up rightwing wacko nonsense and spin it as a freakin' danger to the republic.

That, as it turned out, was the real danger to the Republic.

When John Kerry becomes President of the United States this November...this is what we have to look forward to.

These guys are reelentless, ruthless, invertebrate scum who's moral cup is just short of bone dry.

Until our "real' journalists stop taking their cues from these jerks...it's up to people who are being smeared to continue to speak up about how they are debased by these creeps.
