Turnabout's Fair Play

The same people who hailed the release of Fahrenheit 9/11 are now decrying the upcoming TV broadcast of "Stolen Honor", a documentary about Kerry's post-Vietnam anti-war activities. How come they think it's so unfair? It wasn't unfair for Michael Moore to make an anti-Bush documentary and release it on video in October. Both productions purport to be based on facts. Aren't facts a good thing?

Now, with all the controversy over Fahrenheit 9/11, I have never heard President Bush or any of his surrogates making remarks like this one from official Kerry spokesman Chad Clanton:
"I think they are going to regret doing this, and they had better hope we don't win," Clanton said.
If anyone affiliated with the Bush campaign had said those exact same words about Fahrenheit, you can bet dollars to doughnuts there would have been such a kerfuffle as you'd never seen in your life.
