Rathergate/Hailygate Connection

Guess who was banking on David Hailey’s discredited work? Rathergate’s own Mary Mapes.

From the Dallas Observer:

CBS News didn’t return calls for comment, and Mapes declined to discuss Hodges’ charges. “I can’t, I just can’t,” she says. But she did forward a study by Utah State University Associate Professor David Hailey disputing the contention that the memos were created on a word processor using digital type rather than a ’70s-era typewriter–the key challenge to their authenticity. “I really believe they are not digitally produced,” Hailey says. “I’m not saying that they’re authentic. I’m saying they were probably typewritten. That doesn’t make them authentic. But it does take CBS off the hook a little bit.”
