September 11 Commission - I just watched the NBC News report on the president and vice president's testimony before the September 11 commission. Not surprisingly, it was terrible - slanted against the president and expressing 'concern' (read: hope) that the commission's report would hurt the president's re-election chances. The article on MSNBC is no better. It quotes Derrill Bodley and Bob McIlvaine, both of whom are affiliated with the leftist group September 11 Families for Peaceful Tomorrows. Bodley has contributed to the presidential campaign of Dennis Kucinich.
The article makes no mention of either fact. It simply identifies both men as having lost relatives in the terrorist attacks of September 11. The softballing of family who are using their dead loved ones for political purposes continues.
