Well, it's too late to do a blood test, and no one has come forward with
any "story" contrary to the official one, but that doesn't seem to have
deterred the bloodthirsty media one bit. Waiting 20 hours to report it to
whom? The Sheriff was called immediately. What -legal- obligation (or for
that matter what -moral- obligation) does the veep have to notify a single
living soul? Why does it always have to turn into a Goddamned witch hunt
when someone famous is involved?
The U.S. Secret Service (i.e., Federal officers) knew about it the moment
it happened and within minutes the SS at the White House did too because
the US Secret Service communicates those kind of incidents within their
own organization. Just whose job is it to inform the prez?
If you had accidentally shot your own best friend on a hunting trip, who
all would -YOU- notify and in what order? More importantly, outside of
your own immediate circle of family and friends, who the hell would even
care? Would you think to call the media?
No story here.
Headlines: Hunter injured in accidental shooting
No story here.
Headlines: Lawyer peppered with pellets in hunting accident
Again, no story.
Headlines: V.P. Cheney involved in hunting accident
Well now we've got a story. But the story is it was accidental and there
is no evidence of anything to the contrary.
Aside from WHO was involved it was nothing more than a simple hunting
accident, with all due emphasis here on the word "accident".
The Sheriff's office investigated and apparently found no cause to go
digging any further.
You're absolutely right, "case closed", except to the Liberal Democrats.
Funny how they also tried to used the wire tapping of the Kings to support
their case but conveniently forgot who ordered the wire tap, John F Kennedy.

i don't think so. wouldn't matter if the vice pres was a liberal or a
conservative. the media is just gonna get involved when the vice pres
of the us of america shoots his hunting partner in the face with a
shotgun. the circumstances are the important, just the fact that it
happened. its news.
look, i'm not condemning the man, it looks to me like an accident.
but i sure don't critisize the media for playing it up. it's news.

lol. look real hard and you can find anything. calling it the
"liberal" media makes you just like the folks you are bitching about.
using generic trigger words only opens you up to the same. say what
you don't like about the media, thats cool, but labels like liberal
media really doesn't say a thing, it is just looks like baseless bias.
it gets old.
It's not baseless, not in the least, it's proven fact. Only a left wing
vantage point can make it seem right wing.
While the editorial page of The Wall Street Journal is conservative, the
newspaper's news pages are liberal, even more liberal than The New York
Times. The Drudge Report may have a right-wing reputation, but it leans
left. Coverage by public television and radio is conservative compared to
the rest of the mainstream media. Meanwhile, almost all major media outlets
tilt to the left.
It would . . to a liberal. To a conservative, it's telling it like it is.
The media paints every news report with liberal biases, supports the liberal
platforms and adds personal liberal beliefs into the reports . . .gee, that
makes it a liberal media. One of the worst: Cokie Roberts.

wow, my comment just went straight over your head, apparently missed
you by several yards. but then,, when your mind is so full of
stereotypical bias and mundane mantra, there just isn't much room for
actual thought and ideas. i wasn't defending the liberals or the
conservatives for that matter, but the philosophy of your argument.
No, I caught the insult, that I'm like the folks I complain about. I tried
to ignore until you pointed it out again.
Why should you defend the philosophy of my argument when the media's biases
are self-evident to those willing to realize them?
What's sterotypical about truth? Other than it can only be truth and nothing
Typical of Liberals to ignore the truth ( it was reported as required by
law, to the proper authorities, on time) and to think the nation's liberals
should be notified whenever anyone in the government breaks wind.
Fox, like Tom mentions.
I got sick of Cokie Roberts and her kind newscaster on the main broadcasting
networks advocating abortion on demand, evolution as a fact (it still isn't
anything but a theory).
Of course, Tom's complaint is the same as all liberals in that Fox doesn't
allow liberals or anyone else to browbeat or dominate a report or interview.
