The 10 Spot - [Rathergate Edition]

Ten quotes (or paraphrased points) from the great big interweb on CBS's magic memo fiassco...

  1. Moxie: "This is even more fun than Sandy Berger's stuffed pants."
  2. James Joyner: "Now this is just mean."
  3. Kevin Drum: "The sky is not falling"
  4. Oliver Willis: "Ditto"
  5. Scott Ott: "1972 Email Casts Doubt on Bush Guard Service"
  6. Lileks: "You can't kill what's already dead"
  7. Roger L. Simon: "Howell Raines resigned. So should Dan Rather!"
  8. Powerline: "A defense of 'the price of getting caught is too high' rings a bit hollow in politics based on past history."
  9. Jeff Harrell: "The world has changed"
  10. Allah: "CBS will acknowledge that the documents 'might have been forged' or something to that effect around 6 p.m. tonight."



I'm so pissed I didn't think of that last one...

It would seem theat Oliver Willis has got to be in some sort of tie with American Spectator for launching the Rove Conspiracy Theory.

For Willis and his posse of paid Kerryistas, the world is seamless.

i have a suggestion for all of you outraged, as i am about the fraud perpetrated by Dan Rathre and CBS News.

Go to the CBS News website, at:


Scroll all the way to the very bottom and click on the "Contact Us" link. A simple form will appear in a pop-up window.

Write a very short, polite expression of your opinion and request that Dan Rather resign as anchorman of CBS News.

i would suggest being very brief, and polite. Don't label the message as a complaint, instead use the comment, suggestion or request button, as i did.

i wrote this:

I have been following the CBS News coverage of the Killian memos with interest.

Now that it is clear that most if not all of the memos are forgeries, I cannot see any reason for Dan Rather to remain employed as anchorman of the CBS Evening News.

Every day that Mr. Rather remains as the face of CBS News brings further lost credibility to your once great news organization. Please forward this message to the appropriate person, as my request that Mr. Rather resign as soon as possible.

I would also suggest that you tell your friends to also send similar messages to CBS News. Copy and paste this post into an email if you want.

It only takes two seconds, and even if it doesn't work, it made me feel good doing it.

I agree with Roger L. Simon. If fake, Rather should go.

the Idler:

Though it's a bit obscure, how about:

"What's the forgery, Kenneth?" Wham. "What's the forgery, Kenneth?" Wham.

etc. etc. etc.

Rather is going to hold his ground. He's like his buddies at the DNC -- shameless. By the way, good news. The Fraternal Order of Police, the nation's largest police officer union endorsed President George W. Bush. The FOP has over 200,00 members throughout the nation. That story will not be covered by Dan Rather and his colleagues. They don't want Americans to know that the people actually fighting crime and terrorism believe Bush is the better man.

charles march:

Resign Danno or worse agree to appear on 60 minutes, the pseudoconscience of America, to be quizzed by one of your smug, self-righteous colleagues.
