I feel like one of the victims in Scanners. My head is literally going to explode. Just saw a preview of Rather’s “statement” tonight. Sure enough, he’s going with “what are the central questions here – and why isn’t the President answering them?” garbage.
“I don’ t need an ombudsman”
Something about being as transparent as he can. That’s it, Rather needs to be fired. Whatever it takes at this point – be it a boycott of advertisers, contacting shareholders. We’ll keep putting the pressure on affiliates, of course. And you can help. We’ve sent 5,100 faxes to affiliates so far from people like you, with many more on the way tonight.
Drudge has the following quote from President of CBS News, Andrew Heyward:
“We established to our satisfaction that the memos were accurate or we would not have put them on television. There was a great deal of coroborating [sic] evidence from people in a position to know. Having said that, given all the questions about them, we believe we should redouble our efforts to answer those questions, so that’s what we are doing.”
They just don’t get it. There weren’t just a few questions – there was an avalanche. That took hours to roll across the country. Doubts about the memos’ authenticity don’t remain – they’ve all been disposed of.
The only doubts still lingering are focused on whether CBS News willfully deceived the American public – or if they’re simply a bunch of nincompoops that no one should trust with a teleprompter.
