According to the Drudge Report, CBS has launched an internal investigation into whether its premiere news program 60 MINUTES aired fabricated documents relating to Bush’s National Guard service. Dan Rather is described as “shell shocked.”
In The Washington Post report on the questions surrounding CBS’s memo find there’s this extra bit of information:
CBS officials insisted that the network had done due diligence in checking out the authenticity of the documents with independent experts over six weeks. The senior CBS official said the network had talked to four typewriting and handwriting experts “who put our concerns to rest” and confirmed the authenticity of Killian’s signature.
What was going on in the presidential election 6 weeks ago?
Hmmm, I wonder.
Perhaps that explains the sudden appearance of these memos 6 weeks ago?
