Character assassination

Malik Deschamps - January 29 2007, 5:23 PM

I just read a story about Barack Obama.

His opponents claimed he went to a radical islamic school while he lived in Indonesia.

That information was on fox news channels, But CNN and other prominent news networks who investigated the story found it to be false.

Character assassination is wrong but in politics you have to expect it. Not everybody is cut out for politics, because your opponents will attack you ruthlessly.

Their goal is to make you look bad in the eyes of voters, in fact politic is controversial by nature.

There's really no way to escape accusations if you're in politics.

We live in free societies, therefore you can't really stop anyone from making accusations.
