    I'm sure I'll be sorry to have used the title too soon, since it seems that everyone believes the story is over, when it's just begun. ~sigh~

    LOL! I know it, I'm working on it. Many want me to be more user friendly, but since I can't do pics, I figure, Screw them! :banana:

    God I hope this story is at full speed right up till the election. I just hope they can find poor elusive meniguez (sp) the one who "gave" the documents to Burkett who then made copies and burned the originals to avoid forensic evidence :cuckoo:

    Unless CBS hurries its inquires, it's sure to be around.

    Now, Seems that Dan still believes the memos are 'legit' though not 'authoratative'.

    Now Washington Post saying CBS must investigate whether or not there was a Kerry connection:

    In a nutshell, everything that's wrong with so-called "journalism" today.

    We have zealots of both conservative and liberal bent passing themselves off as "reporters" or "journalists". They are no such thing. They are propogandists. They see their function not to report the news, but to use the news as a tool or a weapon in their particular crusade. And that's how Mapes managed to trip over her own arrogance. Unfortunately people like Mapes, Rather, Jennings, & Brokaw have become the norm in all forms of media. It is extremely difficult, if not impossible to find a media outlet which is content merely to report the factual basis of the news and let their readers, listeners or viewers come to their own conclusions.
