Here are the opening paragraphs of a February 6, 2004 column written by the Orlando Sentinel's Peter A. Brown:
"The presidential campaign is already so nasty that the Democratic establishment is taking its cues from filmmaker Michael Moore.
"It shows, sadly, that the Democrats believe their core supporters hate Bush so much they don't care about the truth of accusations that impugn his character."
The headline for this column in the Sentinel was "Dems' military guru a lefty filmmaker?"
When the Lawrence Journal-World published Brown's column on February 10, 2004, the headline was "AWOL report still dogging Bush."
