    Fiedor Report On the News #318 ^ | 9-26-04 | Doug Fiedor
    Although it is really funny to watch, most of us are getting a bit weary constantly hearing about Dan Rather and his Democratic Party/Kerry campaign-fueled accusations in memogate. This time, the deception of CBS was easily identified and publicly exposed. Unfortunately, that is not always true with the liberal propaganda generally spewed by "Old Media." Quite often, they get away with it. CBS and Dan Rather now want us to believe they were "misled." No they weren't. Terry McAuliffe at DNC and the Kerry campaign had those memos first. CBS admits that their news producer, Mary Mapes, has been searching...

    Complaints About Broadcast Journalism Background The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) receives numerous consumer complaints about broadcast journalism (television and radio journalism). Consumers complain that networks, stations, news reporters and/or commentators have given inaccurate or one-sided news reports or comments, have either failed to cover certain events, or have covered them inadequately. Some consumers complain that the news has been staged or that news reports overemphasize or dramatize certain aspects of events. Other consumers object that broadcasters have announced an illness, accident, or a death of an individual before his or her family has been notified, or have in some way...

    CBS News today named two people to investigate what went awry in its reporting on President Bush's service in the National Guard. The network said it had chosen Dick Thornburgh and Louis D. Boccardi. Thornburgh served two terms as governor of Pennsylvania and was attorney general for three years in the administrations of Ronald Reagan and George H.W... Bush. Boccardi retired last year as president and chief executive officer for the Associated Press. He also helped investigate the Jayson Blair scandal for the New York Times. Blair admitted he had falsified stories. "The two-person review panel will commence its work...

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Christine Iverson 202-863-8614Washington DC – Chairman Gillespie made the following comments during today’s RNC conference call: “Many questions still remain. Was a crime committed? I believe so. Obviously, forgery is involved. But the Texas Legal Code also says it is a third degree felony if one ‘makes, presents, or uses any record, document, or thing with knowledge of its falsity and with intent that it be taken as a genuine governmental record’ or ‘makes, presents, or uses a governmental record with knowledge of its falsity.’ “Did the Kerry campaign know about the existence of the...

Media fear '60' fallout Tue Sep 21, 6:21 PM ET Pamela McClintock, STAFF Frustration and ire gripped CBS News on Tuesday, with staffers and the main "60 Minutes" newsmag trying to distance themselves from the scandal that has embroiled the spinoff edition of the show.

    Much has been made in this election year of the bias demonstrated by the mainstream media for the Liberal ideals of the Democratic party. Finally, the Liberal attack dog they've created has turned back to bite it's owner. In the rush to out-"Bush"Whack the rest, CBS has, at the least, failed to properly investigate a story that has now cast a hurricane cloudbank over there journalistic credibility. At most, many think Dan Rather knew these documents were forgeries and committed fraud by reporting them as genuine. It was bad enough that they didn't back down and apologize when Dan Rather's...

    Rather Ambushed at Dallas Airport; Anchor Bashes Fox September 18, 2004 15:34:06 EDT Fox News has reported that Dan Rather received the "60 Minutes treatment" when he was confronted by a local Dallas TV reporter. Rather has flown to Dallas apparently to help his CBS people in Dallas get their stories straight and bolster their defense. More and more media organizations are picking apart Rather's claims, as more is uncovered about the Texas Democrats who seem to have originated the story. The reporter, from the local Fox affiliate, asked Rather if he felt he was duped. Rather shot back, "Do...

    The chief apologist for the Atlanta-Journal Constitution, Public Editor Mike King, issues his monthly denial of liberal bias at his newspaper. I'm not sure of the rules of quoting a newspaper at Free Republic, so click on the link above to read the article. (Also see my blog post here). The part that caught my eye was the section on the AJC's coverage of memogate. It seems to me that the AJC is reluctant to publish any rebuttal from solid sources, such as Col Staudt, about if President Bush recived preferrential treatment in joining the Texas Air National Guard. I...

    Let us hope that since John Kerry chose to run his platform over what took place more than thirty years ago that it will become a valuable learning tool in what not to do. Future candidates need to learn there isn't anything more futile than running for office one dimensionally. Alas though, Kerry has insisted he must bloviate at any given moment that he served (four months) in Vietnam, Kerry has now been stumping longer on his service than he actually even served. Wouldn't one think if you asked a former president (Bill Clinton who won two terms) for advice...

    Kerry's face found in Rathergate CYA MemoI'm betting CBS is ready to yank CSI off the air and replace it with a newsroom sitcom. But, there is something really odd about the CYA memo. If you convert the CYA memo into a .jpg file and open it with Windows XP Paint, then use the "fill with paint" icon to color the page gray, a face emerges. As you can see, it's clearly John Kerry's face.
  • Response from L.L. Bean (re: advertising on cBS)

    I received a response from L.L. Bean in regard to my complaint about its advertising on CBS. I had suggested that, if it's a company/product you like, give "customer outreach" a chance before initiating a boycott. (Of course, I acknowledge that there are circumstances in which an immediate boycott might be the preferred course of action.) If you'd like to contact L.L. Bean about this, the correct address is: Thank you for contacting L.L. Bean with your concerns. L.L. Bean did not specifically sponsor or purchase advertising time during the "CBS news with Dan Rather" or "60 Minutes". The...
  • Do you have a scam to report to CBS?

    The CBS Evening News Website asks its viewers if they "Know of a scam that needs investigating?", and if so to email them for investigation. Um ... yes. As a matter of fact we do. And we encourage all Kerry Crushers to e-mail them at the address provided and report to them that a network news anchor most certainly tried to scam the country into thinking they had a "smoking gun" memo damaging to the President that is almost certainly a forgery. We really think they're going to regret having this request on their website.

    Critics are calling the media scandal over the Jerry Killian forgeries "Rathergate." But to thousands of Vietnam veterans, the real Rathergate took place 16 years ago when Dan Rather successfully foisted a fraud onto the American people. Then, unlike now, there was no blogosphere to expose him.
