"... seared... seared... in my memory is how I spent the previous night desperately calling the nation's top document experts to ensure that the Bush memos were genuine..."

(from Rather's explanation)

Will CBS stonewall as to the source of the documents? Did they get them directly from Burkett? Did CBS have any contact with Cleland, the DNC or other Dem operatives? Did Burkett prepare the forgeries himself or did he get some 'hep'?

The public isn't the only apology Dan Rather needs to make. President Bush is also due a very humble apology. Nothing less will do...

CBS staff are on the breaking point.

The direct number to the CBS news desk is 212-975-3691

I called and asked when Rather would apologize to the President. The girl was very peeved and said I should go to the gym and work off my anger. Click.

She went to Customer Service Training Classes for sure.

Give them a call, they'll love it.

The local news in Charlotte just ran a piece on the subject. They pleaded with the audience not to blame the local station, that they had nothing to do with it.

Apparently the pressure is on.

If CBS airs footage of Dan easing his pain with a lady of the night in a cheap motel, be assured that I will immediately post it!

If we watch it, then their ratings will go up. I, for one, will not be tuning in to this or any other CBS show until they treat this case like they would if the documents were about Kerry's service.

Rather won't apologize for using FAKE DOCS. None of them
have admitted the DOCS were forgeries...only that they can't
be "verified."

So with a shrug and an "I don't know", they're hoping to walk
away from it, admitting nothing more improper than fully
doing their homework.

Live Thread: Rather's Latest Apologia on CBS Evening News

That sounds about right.
Rather will present an APOLOGETICS explanation of why he and CBS News did nothing wrong.
And that while the documents are false, the story is true.

And Dubya and Rove are the criminals that entrapped them.

Yada, yada, yada...

It will be interesting to see who tries to run down the ultimate source of the forgeries, and their motive for searching. This electioneering flap begs a question - is CBS or parties involved with CBS on this matter exposed under federal code? Does possession of forged offical documents entail exposure similar to possession of stolen property?

Forging offical seals of US government agencies or departments is referred to in 18 USC Sec. 506 01/06/03.

If the forger is active duty US military, then 10 USC Sec. 923 01/06/03 would seem to apply.

Is there any offical DOJ or DOD action that could / should be taken?

Sorry Dan. We need the name of your "unimpeachable" source, not the middle man.

Perhaps people calling CBS should ask for the person's name before they make their comments. Then if someone makes a nasty comment to you, we can keep track.

Agreed, this will be their approach for the time being. Call it a "modified limited hang out." But now that their blood is in the water, they have absolutely no ability to control the story. Someone's going to win a Pulitzer getting to the bottom of this.

Thanks for the tip! Just called and the gal was a little short with me too, but said she'd pass along my comment. I told her it was good that D.R. was apologizing to the public, but that he really owed President Bush an apology also. Yeeee Haaaaa!

I'm not getting my hopes up - all Dan-o's gonna do is mirror his memo. Contrition, doubtful. Let me predict that he will still maintain the "substance of the story is still true and should be investigated". He is a biased Bush-hater working in a raging liberally-biased Bush-hating news organization, only troubled because he got caught lying. But he would do it again in a heartbeat if he thought it would fly. Also, no one will get fired.

Major Garrett, on Special Report with Brit Hume, just reported that Dan Rather says that "he feels like hell."

Garrett then snidely added "even critics of CBS probably believe that is true!"
