That the lead man of Swift Boat Veterans for Truth–John O’Neill–cast presidential votes for Hubert Humphrey and Al Gore (i.e. AGAINST Bush). He has also referred to GWB as “an empty suit.”
Obviously, this is a dying/dead subject, but how is it that the media (yep, here it is again) managed, for months on end, to say explicitly and imply that the Swift Boat people were just a pack of Bush operatives, when 90 seconds of light research would have proven otherwise? This information was reported (Aug. 28) in the NYT (to its credit) but the media never stopped treating these guys like they were anything other than partisan hacks having shady meetings in dark rooms with Dick Cheney.
