Wednesday, September 15, 2004, just fake

Ok, I know Max was all over the release of CBS' latest defense of Memogate, but I really couldn't let it pass without comment. In a word, CBS' redirection of the issue using the "Fake but accurate" defense is lame. Lame, lame, lame. What the viewing public is supposed to take away from this is that the documents themselves are to be completely disregarded, but the information contained within is correct.

Big problem: The veracity of the content is directly dependent on the authenticity of the documents in which it is presented.

Does CBS think we would simply let that fact go? By CBS' standards, I could write "Dan Rather is a horse's ass" in orange crayon on a napkin and sign it "God." If someone disproves that it was written by God, hey, so what, it's the CONTENT that's important.

Note to CBS: There is a big elephant in the living room and he isn't going anywhere.
