Skip to comments.Last remaining CBS document expert says "CBS is wrong"
Posted on 09/19/2004 6:05:26 AM PDT by Mooner
The CBS quotations of Pierce come from a 'Professional Opinion' memo Pierce sent to "60 Minutes" staff on Sept. 14, which was then posted as a PDF document on the CBS News Web site (along with Pierce's home address in the letterhead). But to hear James Pierce tell it, his experience seems to parallel that of James and Will.
This columnist contacted Pierce by telephone Sept. 16. He said he was unable to talk specifically about the work he has been doing for CBS, because - contrary to how CBS News portrays it - he says he has not yet in fact rendered a definitive conclusion on all, or even some, of the documents in question.
According to Pierce, his 'Professional Opinion' letter was only a preliminary opinion, not a final judgment. "They didn't inform me that they were using it for that purpose," Pierce said, referring to the "Professional Opinion" memo. "CBS is wrong."

Welcome. This site helps me keep what sanity I have left after watching the MSM distort,lie, and spin on a daily basis.
ROTFL. IOW, "OK, we blew the first ones, but we've hired better forgers. Will we fool anybody with these? How about these?"
That's a great point. The "sentinel" effect will help us in ways we won't be able to see specifically. But the days when the MSM could just lie to us with impunity are over.
Thanks for all the great 'welcome' messages folks - such a friendly place this is!
Actually dalight, in talking to Pierce it *did* seem like he was close to throwing up his hands...the poor guy sounded exhausted, beaten-down and somewhat confused. I really did feel for him.
By the way, a WaPo reporter got hold of me on Friday and spent about an hour talking to me about the Pierce info...don't know if they're going to use any of my info, but that's fine if they don't - that leaves the Athens Banner-Herald as the sole news source with the scoop on Pierce!
Oh, we can imagine it. In fact, some of us think making history is a burden we gladly bear. It is up to us, the most powerful force in the world, the citizens of the United States, to make sure the history we are making is one in which the Republic prevails, freedom spreads, and a civilized world is preserved as the legacy for our children.
Welcome to the fight.
Dittos on ruining my life.. I spent the first couple days after the Buckhead post just reading everything I could, but soon felt the urge to jump in. It is absolutely addicting. Thank all for your wonderful thoughts and humor.
Welcome to the party pal!
Your wish is my command, Baynative!
Thanx..trying to do my share as well..I've written to CBS , advertisers , Rush , Hannity and others in the week I'm here.I've also sent this site to a few other like minded friends(scarce as they are in the NY metro area )
I used to think FR was a bunch of GOP parrots, but I've been quite pleasantly surprised to find many people willing to criticize Repubs AND RATS when their actions conflict with conservative values and principles.
The amount of news and information available here is second to none as far as I'm concerned. Thanks JimRob and all FRiends!
MSM distort,lie, and spin on a daily basis.
I have even begun screaming at the TV lately. Things Like "Bullsh**" and other kind remarks. It really is too much sometimes. I get so frustated that this is most peoples only source of news.
Oh brother...does it ever. Release your frustrations with Old Media here on FR. You can talk back to Old Media but they're not listening.
And welcome, of course.
"The fact that he is still working this.. is very curious."
he's being paid...
