Former US Rep. Gerry Studds passes away

Posted by: ST on October 16, 2006 at 7:41 pm

My condolences to Studds’ family.

I would be remiss, however, if I didn’t note the media and Congressional double standards on Studds, who admitted in 1983 to having a sexual relationship with a 17 year old male page in 1973 and also admitted to making sexual advances towards two other male pages, in comparison to Foley, who sent lurid IMs to a few 16-17 year old pages. Noel Sheppard at Newsbusters did the research and compares the two.

Her final analysis: “What a difference a “D” makes!”

    Interesting….OK, here’s a pop quiz, everyone…go read the AP story ST linked above.

    The question for the class is, what’s missing from the story?? :-w

    Oughta be easy for anyone who’s watched AP and MSM bias over the years.

    No calls for Democrats to resign, that’s what is missing. F***ing Biased Press.

    That was beneath you.

    Remember, it’s alright for the media to be biased as long as they are biased AGAINST conservatives.

    Yet Fox News is the great evil, right wing, propoganda arm for the Republicans.

    Absolutely unbelievable……

    Actually, what I noticed to be missing from the story is that there is absolutely NO mention of Studds’ party. Nowhere do you see the word “Democrat”.

    Yes, it’s in the accompanying picture, but I believe the reporter wouldn’t know how the file footage would be captioned.

    On the other hand, if he had been a GOP congressman, how many times do you think the word ‘Republican’ would be littered about the story?

    Good rule of thumb: if the story is about a disgraced politician, and neglects to mention his party, he’s a Democrat.
