About that biographer...

Power Line has been doing yeoman's work in pointing out those things that the MSM can't seem to bring themselves to do. This morning's case in point is this analysis of John Kerry's authorized hagiographer Douglas Brinkley, who has a paperback of Tour of Duty coming out...complete with corrections!

However, the story is revealing despite itself in ways not fully intended. A few items in the story leap out and shed their own kind of light on recent controversies. Gerhart writes:

The Kerry campaign has refused to release Kerry's personal Vietnam archive, including his journals and letters, saying that the senator is contractually bound to grant Brinkley exclusive access to the material. But Brinkley said this week the papers are the property of the senator and in his full control.
"I don't mind if John Kerry shows anybody anything," he said. "If he wants to let anybody in, that's his business. Go bug John Kerry, and leave me alone." The exclusivity agreement, he said, simply requires "that anybody quoting any of the material needs to cite my book."

Will the Post now follow up and demand Kerry's a full view of Kerry's military records? Just asking.


Read the whole thing.
