RE: The Forgery Mystery
After reading this story from the Washington Post on the 60 minutes Guard Memo story, I was amazed at what sloppy journalism and downright malfeasance the 60 Minutes staff exhibited. I intitially supported their claims of authenticity based more on my belief that their supposed high degree of professionalism meant that they had probably taken great care to authenticate the documents before hand. Instead, their operation sounds like the Keystone Cops Press:
At this point I am ashamed I ever supported them. In fact their journalistic sin here is so deep and so base, I hereby offer a public apology to all those I contended with on this matter on this and the other forum.The stain and stench of this outrage was aided by me in my own small way, and I see it as a duty to apologize for taking part in this dishonor, whatever the motivation.
If ever there was a time a media operation should shut down a show, fire the reporters and staff, including the doltish Mr. Rather, this is it. Their thirst for scandal over substance makes them unworthy to participate in the political process of the nation, in fact makes them a danger to it. I swear I will never watch this show again, if they get an interview with Elvis himself, I swear I will never watch them or CBS in general, again.
