FOR THE RECORD: CBS Memos Controversy on Free Republic
Free Republic ^ | September 18, 2004

Posted on 09/18/2004 3:26:50 PM PDT by Howlin

In the interest of the historical importance of things that happened on this forum last week and, most importantly, to try to provide and document an accurate record of exactly what happened here on the evening of September 8, 2004, and the following morning, I have compiled a listing of ALL of the postings that occurred on Free Republic concerning CBS and Dan Rather 60 Minutes show from 8:00 PM EDT on Thurdsay, September 8, 2004, up until about 9:00 AM EDT on the morning of Friday, September 9, 2004, when the rest of the internet "caught up."

I am posting this thread for two reason.

First, to document the facts as we all know them to be -- and to try to put to rest the dubious claims that have been made concerning exactly how this all came about and exactly who "brought" it about.

Perhaps I am doing this to try to set the record straight, so as no one else will believe we are anything other than who we are: a bunch of really cool people (in Freeperware) from all across this country and from all walks of life with a passion for this country and for the truth who are lucky enough to know a man like Jim Robinson who decided to make this his life's work and give us all a place to rant/vent/question/opine/whine/relish the events that go on about us.

And, secondly, to remind everybody that even though Buckhead, TankerKC, and myself are the names mentioned in the blogs and articles concerning that night, it was, as it always is here on Free Republic, many, many posters; numerous questions were raised BEFORE the famous post #47.

And if I might add this: in my humble opinion, it was Free Republic at its best; I'm proud to be among you.

I did no more or less than anybody else on here.

True there's glory enough for all, but we must admit there are notable freepers among us. I'm just a thread bumping footsoldier, and couldn't be prouder just being here.

Thanks for the front row seats to history, Howlin. And this will be in the history books.

No, I am not; this isn't about me; it's about us... I'm tired of hearing we are whackos.

Yes, I realize that.
But I still meant what I prev posted, because it's the truth.
And we're going to be more than vindicated this November when Dubya puts a good ol' Texas a**-kickin' on John Forged!

I think we should inform CBS of how Laura Bush is allowed to go through the 10 item checkout line at Piggly-Wiggly with 11 items in her cart.

Great stuff. A bit easier to follow if the old stuff were inside blockquotes. I couldn't find the end of the current post #1. There's a full range of opinions here, including warnings not to impale ourselves on false hopes. I was one of those skeptics until late afternoon.

No doubt about it, tankerKC and Jhouston were definitely before buckhead. They picked up on the ultimately most devastating proof that the documents were forged -- the perfectly centered, typed, header. Impossible with technology of that day. Buckhead was devastating of course, but came later.

George Orwell was wrong Howlin.

We are Big Brother, not the government.
