'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.

Dan Rather was humiliated by Dubya's Dad and he's going to be humiliated now.
My advice to Dan Rather is to STAY OUTTA DA BUSHES!!

And it's not even a third over with yet! ;-)
Folks it appears that this story is getting some big legs and my be ready to run... Drudge is now running it out on his site.... using documentation from power line with people who have done a simmalar disection of the font.... Me thinks that dan ratherbiased and his crew of 60 mins have been exposed. This is another fine example of yellow journalism at its best from 60 mins. But if those of us that the MSM think don't know any better can keep proving them wrong maybe things will change. (I can hope.)
Rush just mentioned it on his show about three minutes ago.

What did you know and when did you know it?
Excellent post. Companies are not in the business of funding political lies and propaganda smears and thereby alienating their customer base.
If this is true it's all over for the Dems on 11/3---yes democrats can vote on nov 3rd only
The citizen's media watchdog!
A suitable typewriter did exist at the time, but that will not be the end of the questions. We need to see the original documents, and others from the same office.
Great job to all the Freepers who put in the work to uncover this!
AND NOW IT'S TIME TO KEEP ON PUSHING AND GIVE LEGS TO THE FALSE "BOO'S" STORY BY THE AP!!
It's time to do everything humanly possible to be sure that the old timey, Media Wing of the DemonRat Party is thoroughly discredited. And that it is so damaged by this election that it can NEVER recover again!
"But HOW do we get the word out about the fraud beyond the world of the Internet?"
Just look how many hits Drudge has had in the last 24 hours alone! As far as we are concerned, we can write our local papers, tell our friends and neighbors, print off copies of these stories and show others....etc.
