The New York Times >Washington> Campaign 2004>TV Watch> On Cable> a Fog of Words About Kerry%27s War Record

The maelstrom swirls and churns and the facts are awash with opinion! Ugh.

At best, cable news programs swing into action when a crisis or major news development occurs, marshaling their resources to give viewers instant, live access. At their worst, they amplify the loudest voices and blur complexities. People can blame the confusion of combat for some of the discrepancies over Mr. Kerry's war record, but cable has done little to clear the air.
