BBC Governors Committee Rules: "Gay" Not A Slur | Main | Man Has Sex With Pony; Pony Dies Two Days Later

Dear Sweet Jesus.

Mary Mapes continues to pour forth some Rather good crazy.
The link goes to HuffPo, but its worth giving Arianna some traffic just for the belly-laughs.
Mapes' piece tears into this book critical of Dan Rather.

Hardcore conservatives will rush to buy it since it apparently echoes their deeply held biases about Dan.

Dan is a victim of conservative bias. I love this woman.
CBS employees will buy it, as well, just to see who is mad at whom. Of course, that is not necessarily great news for the author since so few people are still working at CBS News.

I know. I used to be one of them.


Hee hee!
And part of the inevitable TANG rehash:
The laundry list of problems that critics claimed they saw in the memos has turned out to be bunk. There never has been any definitive proof that they were forged or falsified in any way, despite a multi-million dollar investigation into the story by Viacom. The reasons we put them on the air remain valid: the content of the memos was corroborated by people familiar with Bush, his unit and his commander; the dates, times and details intricately matched what we know of the record; and two experienced and respected document analysts, who examined copies that had not been faxed or digitally recreated, concluded that the papers showed every indication of being real.

I don't believe we will know the truth about the memos until after the Bush team is out of office and people with information are no longer afraid to come forward.


My emphasis.
She still doesn't quite grab on to the concept of intellectual honesty, nor does she show she's learned anything about upon whom the burden of authenticating* documents lies.

Via Jim Treacher.

* as opposed to making sure they look reasonably 'real'
