Michael Moore: 378 Pounds of Rompin' Stompin' Sex | Main | Burkett Wanted Payment
January 10, 2005

CBSNews: Punk'd!

Article-- three producers asked to resign, Mary Mapes fired;

A pdf of the Boccardi-Thornburgh report;

"TKS" digging through the report quickly for juicy parts and contradictions;

and SoxBlog makes this terrific observation:

Here’s what I wanted to hear and I bet you did, too: Number 1, the documents were forgeries; and Number 2, The CBS apparatchiks involved in this sordid affair were animated by their black hearts’ desires to wound the President. Alas, the Report says neither.

But here’s what you do get. The Report lays out the factual case of what happened here better than anything else that I've read. And the factual case is incredibly damning to CBS News and the soon to be departing individuals involved in this endeavor. Yes, the Report doesn’t explicitly say that the documents were forgeries, but no sentient reader could make any other conclusion based on the evidence it offers.

...

I have a feeling those of us in the right wing blogosphere will dismiss the Report because it declines to make explicit that which we “know” regarding CBS’ motives and the documents authenticity. To do so would be a mistake. The Report lays out the facts and those alone are damning enough.

I suppose Mapes and Rather were determined to report what they "knew" in their hearts rather than what they could actually prove or at least confirm. So I suppose the report can be forgiven for refusing to repeat their mistakes.
