pot admits kettles black

cbs has reprinted an op-ed from the american prospect questioning if media coverage of john kerry isn't biased towards the conservative:

so now we're having a debate about whether the man who did the honorable thing may have embellished his record a little (although nothing in the documentary record suggests he did this), while we have two cowards who did everything they could to stay miles away from the place kerry demanded he be sent. this is the fundamental truth. and while yes, kerry has made his war service a centerpiece in a way that bush and cheney for obvious reasons did not, is it really kerry who deserves scrutiny for how he behaved in 1968 and 1969? why shouldn't the major media be doing comparisons of how kerry, bush, and cheney passed those years? why shouldn't the washington post be devoting 2,700 words to a comprehensive look at cheney's deferments? nichols identifies three young men from casper who did die in vietnam: robert cardenas, walter elmer handy, and douglas tyrone patrick. did one of them die because cheney had "other priorities"?
(thanks and a tip of the bush kangaroo hat to winger's daily kos diary for the link!)
