Howard Kurtz considers the way the press is treating Sen. John Kerry after his recent announcement that he’ll undergo surgery today for prostate cancer. According to Kurtz, the press is hot about the supposedly untimely disclosure because “medical problems can make voters uneasy.” Wait a minute. You said the voters aren’t paying any attention to the campaign yet. Which is it Howard?
Kurtz says the press is also upset that Kerry did not tell them about the his condition as soon as he discovered it. This situation is not about a man’s health; it is actually all about the press and the way they feel they are treated.
