    Again, Dan is asking that the administration respond to documents that are forged? This is asinine.

    "I didn't vet these documents, they are likely bogus, respond to them..." Just like they teach in journalism school? :banned:

    Sometimes, a single utterance can sum up an entire career - and define who a person essentially is.

    "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!"

    "It all depends on what your meaning of is is."


    I can think of no more fitting epitath to a career, and a life, built on audacity, arrogance, and flagrant, reflexive dishonesty, than:

    "If the documents are not what we were led to believe, I'd like to break that story."

    It will be extrememly interesting to see whether or not the left wing goes nuts attacking or defending CBS and Dan Rather for believing the validity of documents everyone else on earth believed were false.

    After all, CBS has been saying that the documents were from an "impeachable source." So basically, even though everyone knew they were phony...the source seemed trustworthy so they went with it. They were misled.

    Hmm....didn't GWB have evidence that was, unlike CBS's memos, SUPPORTED by the CIA, FBI, British, French, German, Russian, Egyptian, Saudia Arabian, and Australian intelligence, and don't forget about the UN. In fact, most EVERYONE agreed that Saddam HAD WMD it was just what exactly to do about it that people were fighting about. And it turns out that BUSH WAS MISLED by all of these "impeachable sources."

    So we have CBS, who believed evidence that NO ONE ELSE believed. And we have the President, who believed evidence that EVERYONE ELSE believed...

    Hmmmm.....

    Agreed! unfortunately the left never applies logic evenly. They feel as if just because they do something , it doesn't give everyone else the same right. It's the cornerstone of thier defense .
    CBS obviously has been hit hard because they have absolutely NO effective damage control to date and have just hunkered down and are desperately looking for a way to counter-attack rather than defend. Best way to dodge and old story is to come up with a new "shocker". The dems may provide them with one soon.

    I can hear the CBS HQ spinning from way down here in Georgia.

    LOL, they could be fake? I think that they are definitely fake when their own document expert goes on "Hardball" to say that the documents weren't valid.

    And why do you think that matters? These people are in panic mode. Logic just doesnt apply.

    Let's see if logic applies:

    CBS has a story defaming our President.
    They have documents supporting the story.
    The documents are flimsy, fake, and false.
    CBS has supporting testimony for the story.
    She is an 86 year old secretary who did not type the documents.
    The secretary says she has seen "similar" documents.
    No other "similar" documents have been produced.
    No other witnesses.
    No other document support.
    Dan Rather says our President should respond to the "thrust" of these documents.
    This is considered news reporting.


    Yup. Applied logic. :rolleyes: According to See :bs1: .
