Shocking News From CBS!

They're staying with the documents are real defense!

[Ed - I realize the much awaited CBS announcement has yet to come out, just getting set for the obvious...]

OK, so they've slipped the news to 5:00PM, so I'm not waiting them out any more. See the next post for an exclusive preview of what is coming.

I'm going to wait CBS out in this post. Here's some easy listening music while we wait...

  • The National Review Online's KerrySpot - CBS ANNOUNCEMENT: WHATEVER IT IS, IT AIN'T A RETRACTION

  • CBS News' Bob Schieffer said Tuesday he hopes the network does more reporting to definitively prove the authenticity of memos 60 Minutes II received about President Bush's service in the Air National Guard.
    "People ask me, 'Do I think somebody was trying to set up Dan Rather?' I say, "No that's completely out of the question,'' said Schieffer, who addressed the Siouxland Chamber of Commerce's annual dinner/meeting Tuesday night. "Would somebody do this in an effort to smear George Bush? That may be so. We're in the middle of a political campaign, and this would not be the first campaign where somebody on one side slipped something to a reporter because he feels it would hurt the guy on the other side.''
  • Hot columnist babe digs bloggers! [Kathleen Parker at Townhall]
    All of which brings me to my premise that the blogosphere isn't just a challenge to journalism in its currently stagnant state, but a potential boon to problem-solving of a higher order. The beauty of the blogosphere is that it is self-igniting, self-propelling and self-selecting, a sort of intellectual ecosystem wherein the best specimens from various disciplines descend from the ethers, converge on an issue and apply their unique talents.
    Bloggers as superheros?

  • Hot columnist babe is a blogger! [Michelle Malkin at TownHall]
    As for [former CBS news executive Jonathan] Klein, his pajama put-down will go down in media history as the death cry of snob journalism.
  • Hey look! Another typewritter (the Olympia) that we KNOW was in Killian's unit couldn't have typed that memo.

  • Is this Dan Rather's quote?
    To err is human but to really foul things up requires a computer.
    Looks like a forgery!!! The most common attribution is to Paul Ehrlich, in "The Farmers Almanac, 1978."

- The chum is in the water...the quarter is in the slot...Like so many big hard gumballs the CBS oldline media mavins are going down...With congress jumping into the fray its hard to see them not biting it hard in the end....what the hell can they be thinking....or is it that revealing the truth and the sources is unimaginably worse than journalistic suicide...and if so thats scarry...because it implies this leads back to the doorstep of a presidential candidate and could well mean destroying the whole election process for this cycle with no realistic chance for the Dem's to field a viable alternate candidate...worrysome at this point....

It's a sad thing that democrats just can't admit when they are wrong. That they made mistakes, EGREGIOUS errors. You know what the good book says, "Pride goeth before the fall."

Are we seeing the libs crash & burn? their irrational hatred has blinded them to the point of believing lies & falsehoods. I think this bunch is ready to jump.

It just goes to show how much absolute power corrupts. The libs have come full circle & became what they hated the most in others.... control freaks.

Following a impressionable childhood of reading comix about "real" superheros, I waited decades for my superpowers to kick in. If fact-checking MSM is considered a superpower, then I must say that I am a little disappointed.

Actually, the Dan Rather quote is real. Obviously, he's not the first to say it though.

The roller-coaster ride began slightly before 8 o'clock last night, when CBS started breathing heavily about Al Gore taking the state of Florida. Republicans across the country started muttering to themselves over their Magic Marker maps as the anchors made weak jokes about Gov. Jeb Bush being chewed out by Mom and Dad for not delivering his state to his brother. But about two hours later, the networks retracted. Dan Rather apologized: "Clearly we were wrong to call it as early as we did. To err is human but to really foul up requires a computer." Or a desire to call the race for Gore early and get the party started. CBS seemed the most biased, with Dan Rather noting at 12:30 a.m. that "strident" House Republicans like Tom DeLay and Dick Armey were missing from the national spotlight.

SJDoss, more powerful than the truth? How about the power to compel someone to tell the truth?

Neil:

I think that it is great that you are spending all of your time talking about this. It would be so boring to hear about Bush giving Putin a pass on his (Putin's) dismantling of Russian democracy. Reagan's greatest triumph was his destruction of the dictatorship in the USSR. Perhaps Bush's will be his helping Putin to rebuild that dictatorship.
