    Though related. Chicago Tribune may be trying to make the 'story' go away!

    OOOOOOPS, too late!

    It's amazing how this exploded over the net in less then 24 hours. The forgery is the lead story on ABC news radio, it's in the NY POST, WaPo, etc.

    It ain't going away, hell CBS even has a piece on their site and they are the target LOL

    Rush is talking about how the bloggers, chat rooms and message boards on the internet trumped the major networks on this and called the forgeries before anybody else. So yes, the Internet IS GRAND! :hail:

    Here is a good story on why they are likely forgeries:

    http://abcnews.go.com/sections/Politics/Vote2004/bush_documents_040909-1.html

    Dan Rather, according to Drudge, is saying "They're real, I know it." Of course, Rather hates Bush and always cheers for the Dems, so I doubt he cares.

    Here is the issue for me. 60 Minutes said, "CBS has obtained documents..." OK. WHO gave them to you? 'Cause whoever did either was the forger or is connected. And that is serious business, journalistically, politcally, legally. Bush could have grounds for a libel suit if it was reckless enough. To come clean, CBS should out the forgers or do a story on THEM. And then question their sources in the future. If linked to the Kerry campaign, man, it'd be another Watergate.

    I'm no fan of Bush, but destroying a man with lies is lower than low.

    It will be interesting to see just how Dan and his colleagues at CBS dig their way out of this now. You had Rather this morning talking to reporters about how these documents are 100% true.......Without jumping the gun here I would say that even if he and CBS recants and apologizes (not likely) thier reputations and careers should be over. But that would be in a perfect world :sleep:

    That would be nice...for Rather's career to be over. I thought he was going to start druling in that interview. Eyes glazed over and all! I also find this amusing with all the critisizing of Fox. I'm just eatin this up. Everything they try,backfires!!

    :cuckoo: :whip: :boohoo:
