PROOF the Boston Globe was lying and Drudge was right
The Boston Globe was lying when it said reporter Michael Kranish was not connected to the campaign biography of John Kerry that it criticized internet reporter Matt Drudge for getting wrong.
All books for publication are given an ISBN number. Think of it as like a patent number or a Social Security Number. Every book gets one and it gets only one even if the name changes or the cover changes.
Here's a book listed at the Barnes & Nobles web site:
Note it lists Michael Kranish as the author of the introduction (and likely the ghostwriter of the entire book). Here's a bigger copy of the galley cover the publisher provided to B&N pre-publication:
Note the ISBN number on the link: 1586383145.
Now, here's the link to the official campaign bio with the new cover but still listing the author as Michael Kranish that was cached by Google:
Note the ISBN number on the link: 1-58648-314-5.
Now let's look at the revised publisher's cover which no longer lists an author.
Note the ISBN number on the link: 1-58648-314-5
And finally, the Amazon.com link that Drudge reported listed Michael Kranish as the author and that the Globe claims Drudge was mistaken. Later, Amazon agreed to "correct" the citation of Kranish at the behest of the Kerry campaign.
Note the ISBN number: 1586483145.
The fact that Kranish and the Globe went after one of the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth and, according to the Vietnam veteran, misquoted and misrepresented his statements then felt the need to cover their tracks once it was disclosed that Kranish had ties to the Kerry campaign speaks volumes about the level of dishonesty that the Globe has regarding this entire issue.
The proof is there. Kranish worked on the book in question, just as Drudge reported. Only the Globe, the publisher and the Kerry campaign felt the need to cover this up instead of being honest about the ties between the Kerry campaign and Kranish.
Let's see those a-holes try to spin this!
This is all common knowlege but the spin has allready occurred.
It's like saying Kerry doesn't run Moveon.org.
What are you talking about ?
I cant find Kransh name on there anywhere ?
First look at the JPG. Look below the title and you'll see Kranish's name on the book cover. It's right there, plain as day. That's also what you'll get on the first link. On the second link, which is cached from the publisher's website and has since been changed, you'll see the NEW book cover (the official Kerry campaign bio) with Kranish listed as the author.
The third link shows the publisher's website as it is now. And the last shows Amazon's current listing. They do not mention Kranish because the Kerry campaign doesn't want you to know that Kranish has connections to the Kerry campaign while Kranish is out attacking the Swift Boat Vets as an allegedly unbiased journalist.
But the key is that ALL FOUR book listings have the identical ISBN number - meaning they are all the same book. This proves the Kerry campaign is trying to cover up their connection to Kranish while he is out trying to smear the Swift Boat Vets because that would cause some to question whether the journalist is being ethical.
And when the truth is caught and forwarded to Matt Drudge, the Globe lies about the Kerry-Kranish connection and chides Drudge for not getting it right.
Drudge sometimes gets the story wrong or publishes it without enough fact-checking but NOT THIS TIME. He's absolutely right. The proof is right there. And yet some would rather believe the Globe when it lies about its reporter instead of Drudge when he comes out with the truth.
Now ask yourself WHY the Boston Globe (owned by the New York Times who has had two writers fired in disgrace for lying in the past 18 months) would lie to cover up their reporter's connection to the Kerry campaign. WHY not just admit the relationship? Is it because they have further hit pieces in the works and don't want to be seen as "in bed" with the Kerry campaign?
If you can't see the connection, I don't know what to say. The proof is right before your eyes if you have the courage to believe it.
Can you tell me without a doubt that Barnes and Nobel updated the listing of that Book ?
No you cant .so you are blowing smoke
Such is life
