I truly don't believe CBS cared about the authenticity of the documents.
Bingo! The article states that some of the CBS people thought the documents were fake, but CBS ran with the story anyway.
To: vox humana
CBS, that bastion of the Old Media, just can't adapt to the new realities. In the old days, their use of a forgery would have "passed" for months, until after the election at least. They just can't grasp the real-time fact checking and analysis done by thousands of freepers and bloggers with access to all of the source information.
That's why I call Free Republic the world's first and greatest conservative "virtual think tank."
CBS didn't stand a chance. They were like a placid tree-grazing brontosaurus, staring up at an incoming meteor.
