    Of course, how dare they reveal what type of true person Ted Kennedy was, based on facts and not fiction, that would be called NEWS reporting!

    Hey, its the TRUTH! Isn't that what is supposed to be reported? I'm surprised the NYT actually did this. But I am not surprised that there are liberal critics who care only about perpetuating the Kennedy myth.

    This isn't news and NY Times needs to get some business about them.

  6. Longhorn who speaks the truth.

    Someone needs to remind the people what a scoundrel Kennedy was. A lowlife is just another lowlife. Teddy filled the role excellently.

    Any betrayal for a BUCK. I wonder how much the person received for giving the information in the book to the New York Times. All honor and integrity is gone in this country. I pray our present administration is able to restore the intangibles. SO GOES THE WHITEHOUSE SO GOES THE NATION.

    Too bad he wasn't so open about what happened before he died. He should have said this from day one and accepted his due punishment. Instead, he "faked" the neck injury by wearing the stupid white brace and did his best, along with his family/friends, to make out like he was a "victim" also. He side stepped every question on it and I guess he didn't want to face questions by having the book published while he was alive.

    A publisher miffed at a news organization for letting the public know about a pending book release...good for gossip but not very news worthy.

    At least Sen. Keneddy admitted he made mistakes. Republicans will NEVER admit they're capable of mistakes. Ha!

    The New York Times has already proven itself politically corrupt.., I'll wait for the book.

    Takes the heat from who? Those who don't want the truth to be known?

    Kennedy admited his faults, look at Republicans who refuse to except blame and continue to stay in office once exposed. Republicans look like a bunch of spoiled, privileged, playground bullies thinking they don't have to play by the rules. TYPICAL REPUBLICAN FOOLS!!
