Highlights of this day in history: First victim dies in post-Sept. 11th anthrax scare; VP candidates spar over JFK; The Beatles release 'Love Me Do'; 'Monty Python' premieres; Baseball's Barry Bonds tops single-season runs [sic] record. (Oct. 5)

The summary above says “anthrax scare.” When a serial killer is at work, it’s not a “scare.” For instance, the MSM always refers to the 1950s’ “Red Scare,” in order to insinuate that there was no clear and present danger from Communists infiltrating the government. But the Communist conspiracy was very real.

And Barry Bonds didn’t top the single-season “runs” record. It was the home run record.

The mistake was indicative of a news media world infested with baseball-haters. In my childhood and earlier, such a mistake would never have been made.

Which brings us to the video itself.

It says that Bonds broke Mark McGwire’s single-season home run record of 70 in 2011, and broke Hank Aaron’s lifetime record five years later. The narrator neglects to mention that Bonds (like McGwire before him) was a cheater, whose records are all counterfeit. He was juiced to the gills on anabolic steroids, which is why he looked fat in the video, even though he wasn’t. He had muscles on top of muscles, which distorted his uniformed appearance.

Early in his career, Barry Bonds had a chiseled, 6’2,” 185 lb. physique. By 2001, he weighed 228 lbs. Without naming any names, a few years later, I asked my personal physician how a grown man, already in peak physical condition, could put on an additional 40 pounds of solid muscle. His answer: “Anabolic steroids.”

I hadn’t even been thinking of Bonds at the time. I had recently seen a video of the last out in the College World Series from 20 years earlier, when a beanpole pitcher led the UT Longhorns to victory. That pitcher was named Roger Clemens.

The video shows Lloyd Bentsen’s famous put-down, to thunderous Democrat applause, of Vice President Dan Quayle, during the 1988 Vice-Presidential debate, but fails to correct the record: Bentsen was lying. He had never been friends with John F. Kennedy.

As for the anthrax serial murders, that case was officially solved in 2008, when bioweapons defense scientist Bruce Ivins committed suicide, as the FBI was closing in on him. The video also failed to note that the FBI/DOJ had sought to frame Dr. Steven J. Hatfill for the murders. For much of 2002, I was one of the only two journalists sympathetic to Hatfill. (The other one, Stephen Hayes of the weekly standard, wrote one article challenging the false official narrative, before moving on to other matters. I wrote at least 11 articles and delivered one speech at an Accuracy in Media conference (October 2002) exposing the campaign to railroad Hatfill or, alternatively, drive him to suicide.

In the spirit of Barry Bonds--cheater,liar and run around artist of baseball rules--I see FOX sports has hired two similarly high quality people for their football and baseball coverage.
Alex Rodriguez debuted for this year's diamond playoffs and Michael Vick goes from dogfighting to a seat as analyst for the gridiron.Good character must not be a prerequisite for employment at FOX sports.It's disgusting to see them talk
about the sports they(especially Rodriguez)turned into a farce.Vick's character is garbage for different reasons.Neither should be rewarded for their criminal behavior with jobs,that lets them represent the sports they gave as many black eyes to as Joe Frazier did to his opponents in his boxing career.
What is FOX thinking?No one else to hire?

Bonds. Clemons. McGuire. Sosa. Canseco. The latter got the ball rolling so I am told by a source.

Vick was not only fighting the dogs and killing them but you know quite well enormous sums of money were being bet on each fight. Vick was not used by the gamblers as far as anyone knows, but he did put himself in peril.
