Long Knives Are Out for Mary Mapes (CBS Producer Arranged Meeting between Burkett & Lockhart)
The Ace of Spades ^ | 9/21/04 | Corante

Posted on 09/22/2004 8:51:23 AM PDT by gopwinsin04

CBS News seems to suddenly be offering up an awful lot of derogatory, incriminating information about producer Mary Mapes, who was formerly called a 'well respected journalist' with an 'unblemished reputaion.'

On Tuesday, it was revealed that Mapes arranged for Burkett to talk to a top aide to Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry.

Standard journalistic practices forbid journalists from doing anything that could be perceived as helping a politcal campaign.

CBS News hopes to name an independent panel today that will investigate how Bill Burkett, a Texas Democratic operative and opponent of President Bush, decieved 60 Minutes in its now retracted story about Bush's military record.

'Its clear that something went seriously wrong with the process,' CBS President Les Moonves said.

He called the review both 'necessary and important.'

I dont want to say that they are setting up Mary Mapes as a patsy, but my sources just informed me that CBS is planning to move her through an undergound parking lot in Dallas, and they plan to have fat guys milling around in cowboys hats when they do so.

Mapes should make some phone calls---to Estrich, Brazile, and Cahill---on the subject of falling on swords, and the blame-her game.

She is not a lamb, but she is headed toward sacrifice. Its a shame, we will never see the whole story, unless the pajama brigade makes it public.

Thanks, I'm 65, and so pissed at TV news that I leave my set off. I now git what news I need at FR.

Mapes looks to be quite the feminist wacko, will she fall on the grenade for Kerry/CBS and do a Susan McDougal?

Susan McDougal was PWT, Mapes is a vicious liar who wanted to bring down Bush any way she could.

No, that was about different forgeries.

All I can say is she better stay away from Dealy Plaza, the grassy knoll, and the Texas School Book Suppository (LOL).

Mary Mapes is just another example of how elites consider the American public morons. We are to stupid to figure anything out. So....It's o.k. to lie, cheat and steal to get Kerry elected....I would vote for a chimp on roller skates before John Kerry...

Sorry, Told my age, it was a common joke that it was LBJ's favorite song after the motorcade.
