From Drudge: President fell off bike today… Kerry told reporters in front of cameras, ‘Did the training wheels fall off?’… Reporters are debating whether to treat it is as on or off the record.
The only thing they’re debating is how much damage it’s going to do to Kerry. If Clinton had said it, they would have reported it because it was funny. Since Kerry comes off as an unlikable jerk, there’s a strong possibility that it will harm him. Therefore, a statement made openly in front of the cameras has to be treated as off the record.
The mainstream press is a joke. And remember, if you’re subscribing to them, you’re supporting them.
