"What's The Typeface, Kenneth?"
400 North Capitol Street | DC Newsie

Posted on 09/09/2004 4:38:57 PM PDT by MindBender26

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 reads:

"What's The Typeface, Kenneth?"

The frequency of errors has been about 10 Hertz.


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.

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."

Rove rocks!

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.

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.

This is sort of like reporter and her photog who made a "home movie." Edit booth fed hot to master control. Master ran a tape while the fun couple was editing.

In morning, boss fired them for two reasons:

#1 Using station equipment to make a pornographic video tape.

#2 Using station equipment to make such a poor quality pornographic videotape!!!

This is such a bad forgery, someone at net must have known....

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.

Big building

Many offices.....

South side has great view of capitol, so that do live shots in from of big windows, which is why they can do live shots in short sleeves in February, with capitol dome as backdrop.
