Here’s the latest edition of Some Stories You Won't Find on any other Sunday show:
ABC's of Accountability
An ABC News memo has been leaked that suggests the network is holding President Bush and Senator Kerry to different standards.
Mark Halperin (search), political director at ABC, wrote to fellow staffers that the Bush campaign is trying to win, "by destroying Senator Kerry -- at least partly through distortions."
"We have a responsibility to hold both sides accountable... but that doesn't mean we reflexively and artificially hold both sides 'equally' accountable."
Addressing the Nation
Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore (search) is planning an election-eve pay-per-view TV extravaganza. Plans for the three-hour block include interviews with celebrities and a special screening of his anti-Bush movie, "Fahrenheit 9/11."
In a counter move, Sinclair Broadcasting Stations -- which cover about 25 percent of the country -- will aira movie that attacks Senator Kerry's anti-Vietnam War activities in the days leading up to the election.
If you're like me, there was one exchange at Friday night's presidential debate that went right over your head:
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
SENATOR JOHN KERRY, D-MA: The president got $84 from a timber company that he owns, and he's counted as a small business.
PRESIDENT BUSH: I own a timber company?
That's news to me.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
So, what's the real story? Well, last month the Internet site FactCheck.org published an article on President Bush's 2001 tax returns in which he reported $84 in business income from his partnership in a timber-growing enterprise.
But it turns out back then Lone Star Trust was in the oil and gas business. It got into trees after that. So bottom-line: the president was understandably confused. John Kerry was wrong, but only because the Web site made a mistake which they have now corrected.
