'60 Minutes' Documents on Bush Might Be Fake

(CNSNews.com) - The 32-year-old documents produced Wednesday by the CBS News program "60 Minutes," shedding a negative light on President Bush's service in the Texas Air National Guard, may have been forged using a current word processing program, according to typography experts. Three independent typography experts told CNSNews.com they were suspicious of the documents from 1972 and 1973 because they were typed using a proportional font, not common at that time, and they used a superscript font feature found in today's Microsoft Word program.

Hmm ... is it slander or libel if defamation of character is performed on TV ?

That wasn't me doing any of the work and research.

I'll put freeper research up against Old Media any day.

Old Media is just too darned tired to do any actual work.

The real shame here is that it took less than 12 hours for Freepers and others to come up with this evidence.

WHY COULD SEE B.S. NOT DO THAT?

Lak of motivatiion, maybe?

Now if this can just get into the mainstream press.

This would be good fodder for some senior Bush staff to talk about how desperate the libs are to even go so far as to use "obviously forged documents" to attack and slander the President.

This is good. By casting doubts on this story we will only negate the Kerry's camp's dirty tricks and make them look worse. Anything that they try after this can be deemed suspect. It's all about perception and if they are seen as reaching for the lowest slime possible, it makes Bush look good.

Word processors did not exist at that time, all there was were typewriters, the IBM selectric with the type ball was state of the art. Each character has the same amount of width on the page with a typewriter, proportional space proves its a forgery...
