Skip to comments.Do you have a scam to report to CBS?

The CBS Evening News Website asks its viewers if they "Know of a scam that needs investigating?", and if so to email them for investigation. Um ... yes. As a matter of fact we do. And we encourage all Kerry Crushers to e-mail them at the address provided and report to them that a network news anchor most certainly tried to scam the country into thinking they had a "smoking gun" memo damaging to the President that is almost certainly a forgery. We really think they're going to regret having this request on their website.

Dan Rather is being scammed by the DNC over forged documents. Please investigate.
yeah Dan Rather and 60 Minutes.
That should read; c-BS News. Pass it on.
Even the facts in Dan Rather's Forgeries support Bush, but Rather to baised to admit it. See
I heard some well-known news anchor accepted some photocopies of some made-up documents and then adamantly and defiantly tried to pass these off as the real deal in a desperate and egomaniacal bid to sway a Presidential election.
Or was that some bad B-movie on the Late Show last week?
Emily Will, a veteran document examiner from North Carolina, told ABC News she saw problems right away with the one document CBS hired her to check the weekend before the broadcast.
I found five significant differences in the questioned handwriting, and I found problems with the printing itself as to whether it could have been produced by a typewriter, she said.
Will says she sent the CBS producer an e-mail message about her concerns and strongly urged the network the night before the broadcast not to use the documents.
I told them that all the questions I was asking them on Tuesday night, they were going to be asked by hundreds of other document examiners on Thursday if they ran that story, Will said.
But the documents became a key part of the 60 Minutes II broadcast questioning President Bushs National Guard service in 1972. CBS made no mention that any expert disputed the authenticity.
I did not feel that they wanted to investigate it very deeply, Will told ABC News.
HELP !!! PLEASE HELP ME !!!
I ate a banana in the SeeBS lunch room... now I think I'm pregnant !!! ;-))
Can you look into a case of forged documents apparently being passed off to the public as the real thing? A formerly prestigious network news show has perhaps perpetrated a fraud with questionable documents and will not allow the proper investigation of the originals to settle the matter once and for all. My colleagues and I would welcome a critical examination of the original documents in question, by non-biased experts, but the network continues to obfuscate.
I work in law enforcement, and to consider this any sort of "investigative" journalism is indeed a scam.
