Friend who works in newsroom at 400 North Capitol Street in DC just called.
There is now a huge, handwritten sign printed on teleype roll paper stretched across newsroom ceiling.
It's only a matter of time LOL!
I love it. The New Media is tying the Old Media giant CBS into knots.
You can be sure that the FREQUENCY of liberal fraud will continue to escalate up through tht election...
What's 400 North Capitol Street?
LOL! Friend of yours?
Developing Brief Partial Summary of the Forgery Elements of the CBS/Rather Faked letter
Insightful Comments Made by FReepers
1-- proportional spacing not generally available
2 -- superscripts not generally available
3 - small "th" single element not generally available
4 - Smart quotes. Curved apostrophes and quotation marks were not available
5-The blurriness of the copy indicates it was recopied dozens of times, tactic of forgers
6--Signature block. Typical authentic military signature block has name, then rank, then on the next line the person's position. This just has rank beneath the name.
7--Margins. These look like a computer's unjustified default, not the way a person typing would have done it.
8 -- Date usually with three letters, or in form as 110471.
9 - words run over consistent with word processor
10 - may be a Times Roman or similar font not generally available then (per Haas Atlas)
11 - signature looks faked
12 - no errors and whiteout
13 - no letterhead
14 - exact match for Microsoft Word Processor
15 - Paper size problem, Air Force and Guard did not use 8 1/2 x 11 inch paper until the 1980s.
16 - Overlap analysis is an exact match
17 - absence of hyphens to split words between lines, c/w 1970's typewriter.
18 - 5000 Longmont #8 in Houston Tx. does not exist
19 - Box 34567 is suspicious, at best. The current use of the po box 34567 is Ashland Chemical Company, A Division of Ashland Oil, Incorporated P. O. Box 34567 Houston
20 - it would have been nearly impossible to center a letterhead with proportional spacing without a computer.
21 - Bush's grade would "normally" be abbreviated "1Lt" not "1st Lt"
22 - Subject matter bizarre
23 - Air Force did not use street addresses for their offices, rather HQ AFLC/CC, Wright-Patterson AFB, OH 45433.
24 - kerning was not available
25 - In the August 18, 1973 memo, Jerry Killian purportedly writes: "Staudt has obviously pressured Hodges more about Bush. I'm having trouble running interference and doing my job." but General Staudt, who thought very highly of Lt. Bush, retired in 1972.
26 - Language not generally used by military
27 - Not signed or initialed
28 - Not in any format that a military person would use, e.g. orders not given by Memo.
She has great penmanship too........
Oh, yeah, this is WAY out of control.
It has LEGS!
Hey DAN, put some ice on that!
This is a GREAT post today.
I JUST HEARD ABOUT THIS!!! Am I hearing this right, or did CBS forge documents on Bush!!! OHHHH MAAAAAN!!!!!!!! HA HA HA!! LOL!!! Freggin` `Rat`s are so desperate to get something on Bush they are now forging stuff?? Dan Rather, as if your credibility couldn`t get any worse!! Guess what? IT HAS!!! Ohhhh...I hope this turns out to be true, Kerry, Michael Moore and now Dan Rather.. all these libs are all phony POS`s!! Oh yes!!! YES!! Bush by landslide in `04!!!
Great set of gams....ain't it!!
Dan Rather can look forward to his next job as a vote counter for Jimmy Carter.
Uh... who's Kenneth?
"Hey DAN, put some ice on that!"
Kinda tugs on the ole puckerstrings don't it?
59:59 and ticking....
If you want on the list, FReepmail me. This IS a high-volume PING list...
DAN RATHER IS A BUFFOON!
I just E-Mailed CBS 60 Min II.
Who is Kenneth?
It's a freakin' octopus by now.
CBS gave a copy of the forged memos to the White House and the White House graciously made copies and distributed them to the rest of the media knowing they would run with them.
WH response will be, "We made copies of the memos CBS gave us because we would never expect CBS to use forged documents in their reporting."
This is going to be the deathnell of CBS and should be of the MSM if this turns out to be a forgery!
Ya - this is too funny. But who is Kenneth.
Would love to get a digitial photog of that scene.
It's morphing into a...looks like it's a centipede, folks.
It's a reference to when Rather was accosted by some guy who kept asking him "What's the frequency Kenneth."
I believe that's the title of an old REM song, if I recall correctly.
Google "What's the frequency kenneth" Dan Rather
...you'll catch on.
Hey Dan, Font you.
American Gas Association
400 North Capitol Street, NW Washington, DC 20001 Telephone: (202) 824-7000 Facsimile: (202) 824-7081
I don't think it's these guys.
Meantime, Chrissy is yammering away with Don Trump. This doesn't exist for him.
Eh, just in case this is a serious question - who's Kenneth?
When Rather was assaulted in a subway bathroom a number of years ago, apparently the nutty guy kept asking him, "What's the frequency, Kenneth?" as he was beating him in the head.
Sorry if I've mistaken sarcasm for a question, lol. I'm giddy from today's events.
If I remember right, when we used a typewriter, we used to put two spaces after a period. In typesetting and on the computer, only one space is used. It appears to me that there is only one space in the doc that I saw.
I should have pointed out earlier that the REM song came after the Rather incident.
Gotcher frequency, Dan.
Cheaper than a hot pistol on a blind date.
Thanks. I think you're right.
ROTF!!!! And CBS did it to themselves...
I've read the posts and still can't dial in my secret decoder ring here.. HELP..
Are you guys actually SAYING that CBS news have themselves, created FORGED DOCUMENTS about Bush's miliary service??
Somebody please, slap me upside da' haid with da truff...
FWIW, I don't CBS ginned them up. Just bought it all, hook, line and sinker.
