Beverly Cocco, "Apolitical Republican Mom:" Cocco's Advocacy Group Links to International ANSWER

Here's the Parents Against the Draft contact page listing CBS News' apolitical, Republican mom as the chapter contact for the Philadelphia area.

Here's that organization's links page, linking to International ANSWER, "Not in Our Name," United for Peace & Justice, Student Peace Action Network, etc.

Gee, I'm so suprised that Dan Rather forgot to mention that.

Presumably another apolitical Republican, this one featured on Beverly Cocco's "nonpartisan" site.

Update: Powerlineblog, which can really push a story, is on the case.

Update-- Even One of the "Peace" Groups Beverly Cocco's site links to says the Emails are riddled with inaccuracies; how come Dan Rather didn't mention it?

"That e-mail doesn't die. It's got a lot of inaccuracies in it," said Bill Galvin, a counseling coordinator with the Center on Conscience and War, a conscientious objectors organization in Washington. "We're getting so tired of answering questions about the stupid thing."

Yeahp, if you look at the very Republican, very apolitical links section for Bev Cocco's nonpartisan activist group, you'll see the Center on Conscience and War.

Even her own compatriots admit the emails are fake.

Planet Peschel tips to this Newhouse News Service article debunking the emails.

The emails that CBS represented, through its silent endorsement, as accurate.

I Question the Timing! Update: It just so happens that, once again, CBS News chooses to air an unsubstantiated and dishonest story at the same time the Democrats are pushing the issue.

Dan Rather just happened to run his forged-documents story at the same time the DNC was preparing its Fortunate Son ad campaign.

And now Dan Rather puts this story on the air -- fake emails, fake "apolitical, Republican mom" -- at the same time Kerry and the DNC are pushing the "Bush wants to reinstate the draft" line.
