Sort of like the way Rathers eyes bulged out of their sockets when he realized he had been duped by Kerry operatives.

Print out the Word doc and copy it a few times to shrink it - it will probably fit perfect...

Precisely. The forgers copied the word processed original several times to give it that rough "typewriter" look.

BTW, CBS made the "mistake" of publishing the documents on pdf format on its website. It's the same mistake (sort of) that Nixon made in keeping the tapes. Had the docs not been posted, they couldn't have been analyzed, and debunked.

ALERT!

I just received a photo and some information that needs some checking.
I was told that the photo shows the "handwriting expert", Marcel Matley
- misused by CBS & Dan Rather to authenticate the National Guard
documents - when he was hired by the Florida democrat party in 2000
to recount the presidential election ballots.

Anyone, I mean ANYONE, taking a look at these documents could have seen that they were not from the 70s.

I don't understand how this is even still a point of contention.

1) Dan Rather and anyone associated with putting this story should be fired.

2) If we track where those fakes came from, undoubtedly it will lead to someone at the DNC or the Kerry Campaign.

I guess I understand how the doc's authenticity is still a point of contention... no one wants to know where they came from for fear of completely blowing up Kerry's campaign.

No one except for people like us.

Like I was saying on one post the other day, is it me or does the "original document" look like it has just one too many dots/specks around it? As if someone dotted it with a ballpoint pen in an attempt to make it look old or worn? I looked at a large copy of it yesterday, and I swear those do not look like dust particles or ink specks/sprays. You can actually see if you blow it up enough, a similar pattern to all those specks as if they all came from the same thing, and the various pressure marks from the pen.

It's completely the same except the distortion from copying (making the forgery expand a little in all directions) and the distortions in the fonts from copying and pixellization. I love reading the liberals trying to deny the obvious, particularly on DU where they are arguing that the "s" characters all extend below the baseline. It is obviously not true in general, and just a copying artifact in some cases.

Intentional aging?
Not even.
A lot of the degradation is from faxing. Faxing will screw up a document in one pass. This may have gone only gone through a fax, had the redaction made, and then a copy.

I wouldn't be surprised if CBS fell for a 1972 document found on the output tray of an inkjet. "Oh my God! Look what I just found!" The prankster was probably so embarrassed by their colleagues they just walked away shaking their head.

You could also get that effect if you were to print it out on NCR paper, crumple it up, flatten it out and copy it a few times. You would also have to lighten the contrast in order to get out a lot of the wrinkles in subsequent copies.

Does any one know if notepad or wordpad have the raised letter feature, as in "th". I can't seem to get it even though notepad and wordpad came after this so-called typed letter.

The numeral "8" in the date seems to be above the baseline in the CBS document. "7" in "187th" seems to go below the baseline. Furthermore, the serifs in capiral characters seem to be a lot heavier in the CBS than in the LGF version.

Excellent work.

Off-off topic but here goes...

Question Isn't it about time that a group of Conservative investers make a "hostile" takeover of CBS stock and install a new ownership more along the lines of Fox?


Think of the possiblities.

________________________________

Question:
It didn't take long Wed. night for some here on FR to create Word docs and overlay them on the CBS fakes. And I know that some news outlets have reported that they duplicated this procedure.

But has anyone seen it done on camera...for a news segment??? Wouldn't that be pretty compelling TV? I haven's seen it done and wonder why not.

That's just distortion for the document being copied and the copies being copied etc.

You need to understand that the original was supposed to be typed by a human on a typewriter.

It would have taken two or three "takes" to make sure you know when to hard-return so that you NEVER needed to hyphenate a word.

Open up word and write the "original" yourself using Times New Roman size 12 (oddly, it's the default on my version of Word... another kicker)...

Yeah, but these dots around it are all the same size more or less. I tried it last night on a piece of paper and it looks exactly the same. Take a white piece of paper and a black ballpont pen, and really fast just dot the page all over at random. It looked exactly the same, same light to dark dots from hitting the paper at different pressures etc. I have a fax machine also and I got nowhere near that many dots after making copies after copies on a letter I had. To me they look too similar in size for it to be just from carbonized paper.

Probably due to multiple copying (to make it look old) by the Democrats who gave it to CBS.

Oh well, there goes Teds "credibility". BWA HA HA HA HA HA!! That punk cost me a ton on TASR stock a few months ago. Him and the NY Times ganged up on it 2 days before it`s earnings report saying it kills people without providing one shred of evidence. The stock fell 20 points after that. Why? Because cops said it was helping them and criminals cried "not fair".

Was there or is there any typewriters that have wrap text? I find this incredibly hard to believe there are no dashes separating lines and words unless one has such a keen eye for margin.
