Now that the press is clamoring (along with Kerry) for the story to go away because it has been going on for "too long", Donald Sensing at One Hand Clapping does a comparison:
Bush+National+Guard: Results 1 - 10 of about 703,000
Bush + National + Guard + Records: Results 1 - 10 of about 278,000
Bush + AWOL: Results 1 - 10 of about 101,000
Bush + Deserter: Results 1 - 10 of about 38,100
I tried to get Lexis-Nexis results, but it keeps freezing because there are too many documents to retrieve.John didn't do equivalent-type searches, so I did:
Results 1 - 10 of about 127,000 for kerry swift boat veterans truth.
Results 1 - 10 of about 7,730 for kerry bronze star controversy
Results 1 - 10 of about 12,600 for kerry cambodia controversy
Results 1 - 10 of about 84,600 for kerry "unfit for command".
You can do the math, but the comparitive coverage didn't stop the Washington Post's E.J. Dione from claiming that coverage of Kerry's controversies need to be "balanced by serious scrutiny of Bush in the Vietnam years."
