Sorry, just woke up and logged in...

Another site from the blogosphere

http://www.corante.com/importance/archives/006222.php

has an interesting take, speaking of CBS quotes.
Sorry for the poor format, I'm a newbie who hasn't
learned the HTML formatting yet ;-) My quoting
is the medium margins, website's quote is tiny margins:

' When contacted, CBS stood by its
story and spokesperson Kelli
Edwards made the following claim
in an email according to WorldNetDaily
(CBS News denies Bush docs forged):

"CBS verified the
authenticity of
the documents by
talking to
individuals who
had seen the
documents at the
time they were written.
These individuals
were close associates
of [Bush commander]
Colonel Jerry Killian
and confirm that the
documents reflect
his opinions
at the time
the documents
were written." '

The website goes on to point out that this _can't_
be Marion Knox. [Then again, maybe it can: if CBS
will JUST ADMIT THAT THE NOTES ARE FAKES!]

Maybe the two "unimpeachable sources" are Knox and Burkett?
Or might it be Dan Rather's daughter and Ben Barnes?
Or just possible George Soros and Michael Moore?

We need to tell RatherGullible (TM) to go FAX himself!

CBS News-All the news that's fit to FAX
CBS News-We report, you deride
CBS News-We get our news from reliable White Horse souses.

Well, if they claim to have seen the documents at the time they were written, they are lying. The documents were not written until MS Word became available, well after the dates on the memos. I frankly think CBS has lied about all kinds of things on this story. But the truth will come out.
