An ad by the pro-Bush Progress for America Voter Fund (PFA) attacks Kerry for voting against intelligence spending and for voting against “13 weapons systems our troops depend on.” The ad is partly accurate, but misleads by starving the facts of context.
Kerry ad says medical paperwork costs hundreds of billions and his plan could save money. He’s right. But what about the expense?
Even the 9-11 commissioners don’t agree about whether their staff report contradicted the Bush administration.
MoveOn PAC ad says administration gave contracts “on a silver platter,” but government investigators say otherwise.
A scare story spreads electronically, but it gets facts wrong.
New ad says his cuts are “the largest tax relief in history.” Some experts disagree.
He says 43 million don’t have “health care.” He means they don’t have insurance.
His latest ad is all generalities, no facts.
In reality, Kerry favors some of the same “safeguards” as several conservative Republicans.
It quotes negative comments from newspapers, but doesn’t mention that they are editorial expressions of opinion.
