We at RPF have "impugned the motives of journalists" for many years. No one here believed Dana Bash "simply misspoke" when she said that she was worried that Ron Paul's campaign would continue, or when she asked ridiculous questions. Nor did we believe the media presstitutes when they made a concerted effort to black out Ron Paul throughout the 2012 election. We impugned their motives extensively then, and we continue to do so today.
Mr. Robert Parry, author of the above article you linked, also wrote a glowing piece about John Kerry called "How John Kerry Exposed The Contra-Cocaine Scandal" for Salon.com. The article, published on October 25th 2004, came out just before the November 2004 elections, when Kerry was running for POTUS. Mr Parry includes statements like, "The Kerry whom I met during this period was a complex man who balanced a rebellious idealism with a determination not to burn his bridges to the political establishment", "Kerry combined a prosecutor's sense for sniffing out criminality and a politician's instinct for pushing the limits", "Kerry's reward for his strenuous and successful efforts to get to the bottom of a difficult case of high-level government corruption was to be largely ignored", and other such glowing endorsements.
As far as I can tell, Robert Parry wrote these types of articles for Kerry every four years. For example, in addition to the 1996 article you linked, which contrasted Kerry and Weld, here's Parry complaining that the 2004 election was stolen from Kerry. Parry reports that Kerry believes the election was stolen by people tampering with electronic voting machines. The title of the document is not "Kerry believes election results were tampered with", but "2004 Election Stolen". Parry's later relationship with Kerry seems to have soured, for after about 2010, the articles are more critical, but prior to that time, Parry wrote these types of articles for Kerry.
You've been hoodwinked by Mr Parry's quadrennial support for John Kerry.
