Worst of the Web Today: Taranto claimed he has "seen no convincing evidence" of Swift Boat Vets' dishonest smear tactics


In his October 11 "Best of the Web Today" column, Wall Street Journal OpinionJournal.com editor James Taranto wrote that he has "seen no convincing evidence to back up the assumption, commonly accepted in the media, that the Swift Boat Veterans unfairly maligned" Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) during his 2004 presidential campaign. Taranto was commenting on a columnist's suggestion that Kerry sue Swift Boat Veterans for Truth (now known as Swift Vets and POWs for Truth) for libel.

Taranto, who evidently reads Media Matters for America on a regular basis, might consider reviewing our extensive coverage of Swift Boat Veterans for Truth's deceitful smear campaign against Kerry.
