Suffice it to say, Jim Kouri, vice president of the National Association of Chiefs of Police, is among the 92 percent of police commanders who charge that the news industry is not playing fair and impartial in the 2004 presidential election.
Consider the nation's largest police union, the 300,000-member strong Fraternal Order of Police, which announced recently its "enthusiastic" endorsement of President Bush for re-election.
"Yet the news media intentionally or unintentionally ignored this important endorsement," notes Mr. Kouri of the president's ability "to wage a war on terrorism and his resolve to protect the homeland."
At the same time, he points out, when the international firefighters union endorsed Democratic presidential nominee Sen. John Kerry — "largely because he believes buying more fire engines will protect us from terrorists" — the news media could hardly hold back their excitement.
"Of course, they never mentioned that the New York City firefighters endorsed Bush — and let's be honest, they are the guys who charged into the burning twin towers on September 11, 2001."
