    NRO ^ | 2/9/07
    What a mess: A Feb. 9 front-page article about the Pentagon inspector general's report regarding the office of former undersecretary of defense Douglas J. Feith incorrectly attributed quotations to that report. References to Feith's office producing "reporting of dubious quality or reliability" and that the office "was predisposed to finding a significant relationship between Iraq and al Qaeda" were from a report issued by Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) in Oct. 2004. Similarly, the quotes stating that Feith's office drew on "both reliable and unreliable reporting" to produce a link between al-Qaeda and Iraq "that was much stronger than that assessed...

    Limbaugh ^ | 09/27/05 | Rush
    RUSH: I want to now go to these Dan Rather sound bites. Dan Rather was interviewed last night at the National Press Club in Washington by former CBS News employee-reporter Marvin Kalb. Marvin Kalb now runs the John F. Kennedy School of Government's Shorenstein Center at Harvard, and you know something? When you hear these bites you're going to understand what I'm saying here. This is one of the problems of the mainstream media today. When these reporters that get long in the tooth get laid off or retired, they farm them out to these think tanks and these journalism...

    Photo by Billy Smith III Blogger sheds no tears for Rather By MARLON MANUEL The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Published on: 03/10/05 Amid the wafting smells of spicy meatballs and wine, in front of a Sony projection TV in Sandy Springs, Harry MacDougald clutched a Samuel Adams in his left hand Wednesday night as Dan Rather bid adieu after 24 years at the anchor of the "CBS Evening News." But MacDougald did not cry in his beer. Along with 50 guests, including many prominent Fulton County Republicans, the Atlanta attorney cheered the final night of Rather's anchor reign in a basement...

    Free Republic has been credited by Time Magazine as having the Best Blog Scoop during Election '04. On page 23 of the latest Time Magazine issue, dated November 15, 2004, in the Notebook section there is a photo of John Kerry in his NASA Bunny suit. Just below this photo, there is a headline that says, "Best Blog Scoop". It reads;" is the first to claim that the documents obtained by CBS News regarding Bush's National Guard service were most likely faked." Kudos to the Pajamahedeen at FR and big one to Buckhead!

    GOPUSA/Talon News ^ | 9/27/04 | Jeff Gannon
    WASHINGTON (Talon News) -- The Center for Individual Freedom, a Virginia-based, constitutional advocacy group filed a complaint last week with the Federal Election Commission charging that CBS and Kerry-Edwards 2004, Inc. illegally coordinated election communications. The complaint charges that CBS and the Kerry campaign violated federal campaign finance laws when they colluded to attack President George W. Bush based on claims and documents now believed to be fake. Jeffrey Mazzella, the Center's Executive Director, said in a press release, "It's obvious that CBS and the Kerry campaign acted improperly. That much is clear to anyone with a pulse." Mazzella added,...
  • Proof that Dan Rather really does vet his sources for possible political motivation

    Proof that Dan Rather really does vet his sources for possible political motivation: (as long as it's in the liberals' interest...) In August, 2000, the AP broke a story stating that a grand jury would investigate whether President Clinton should be indicted. Dan Rather's response on “You don’t have to be a cynic to note that this has all the earmarks of a carefully orchestrated, politically motivated leak..."But when Bill Burkett - a partisan Democrat who compares President Bush to "Hitler" - provides Rather with documents which are contradicted by the son and widow of the supposed author and...

    [snip] Kerry wants this issue to go away, but Rather keeps doing whatever will keep it going. By now, Kerry knows he can’t win on this point, no matter what he says (he could have gained a bit last week, by demanding CBS come clean, but instead kept quiet, hoping Rather would win his bluff. Oops) . So, the longer this goes on, the worse Kerry suffers. * Bush is now innoculated, as I said before, against personal attacks. If anything remotely like this comes up between now and November, he or his staff will just shrug and say something...
