Springsteen: "We've Been Mislead"

Bruce has always fought the good fight. I'm so proud to be a fan!

Here's his Rolling Stone interview.

Do you think the press is leading us away from a fair and objective reading of this election?

It's gotten very complicated, and I think it's blurred the truth. Whether you like the Michael Moore film or not, a big part of its value was that it showed how sanitized the war that we received on television at night is. The fact that the administration refused to allow photographs of the flag-draped coffins of returning dead, that the president hasn't shown up at a single military funeral for the young people who gave their lives for his policies, is disgraceful. You have the Swift-boat guys who have been pretty much discredited, but there is an atmosphere that is created by so much willing media exposure that it imparts them credibility.

How did Bruce blur the truth here? What do you mean?

Really, I'd like to see something besides a one-line rebuttal.

Just in Klaus' quoted material, Springsteen portrays Michael Moore as the provider of truth and dismisses the SBVT as "discredited". He says Bush's failure to attend funerals is "disgraceful," yet lacks understanding on established precedent for Presidents.

Stick to singing Bruce, because political analysis seems limited to reading headlines.

All he said was that Michael Moore showed a side of the war that we don't usually see--which is true enough, regardless of whether you think the rest of Moore's work is bunk or not. He didn't say he wrote the Gospels or anything.

So should artists who support Bush just stick to singing too?

Oh well, I think he's a thoughtful, introspective, and humble man who to me has always represented truth in many forms.

I have friends doing their second tour's of duty in Iraq and they actually got a bootleg copy of Michael Moore's film and they can honestly say that Michael Moore is NOT showing what is happening in Iraq, "writes at the intelectual level of a second grader", and creates and presents things which are simply false.

Bruce Springsteen is a liberal following the classic script laid out before him by Democrats and Michael Moore's.

If you believe that, then you haven't been paying attention to his music for the last twenty-odd years.

And if that's true, then you have missed quite a lot, which is too bad.

Really? How? I honestly think someone would need some proof of that to make a statement such as this. Bruce and yourself must possess some information that has evaded the press and the rest of the nation. Because we all know the NYTs have been looking high and low for this info you possess. Bruce has as much right to speak his mind as the rest of us. I don't have to agree--but intellegent conversation backed up by facts would do us all some good.

They have been discredited. The military did an investigation about Kerry's medals and approved them completely.
