Cheney/Halliburton Link Claim Is Bogus

From Factcheck.org:

A Kerry ad implies Cheney has a financial interest in Halliburton and is profiting from the company's contracts in Iraq. The fact is, Cheney doesn't gain a penny from Halliburton's contracts, and almost certainly won't lose even if Halliburton goes bankrupt.

The ad claims Cheney got $2 million from Halliburton "as vice president," which is false. Actually, nearly $1.6 million of that was paid before Cheney took office. More importantly, all of it was earned before he was a candidate, when he was the company's chief executive.

Liberals always distort the truth because they think they can get away with it. But I think the internet is what's really annoying them. They can't shut people up. Look what bloggers did to Dan Rather!
That's a very interesting peice. You won't see it reported on CNN will you?
