Those Forged Documents
I haven't had a lot of time to blog or read blogs lately, but I have been following the forged documents story. Blogs broke this story, and while the mainstream media will try to ignore it, they can't do so forever. (Even Drudge, who is very disdainful of blogs, linked to the Power Line post on this that started it all.)
Two quick comments on this:
1. How dumb do you have to be to forge a document from 1973 using the default settings on Microsoft Word? They could have at least fiddled with the fonts and settings in an attempt to mimic a typewritten document, but they didn't even do that. Like Andrea Harris suggested, if they wanted to do it right, they should have procured a vintage typewriter from eBay.
2. Who forged this document? Where did it come from? Was it from within CBS, or did it come from political operatives? (Is there a difference?) If someone gave the document to CBS, did their bias against the President keep them from making any real attempt to verify the authenticity of it? (I think we know the answer to that...)
I have to admit; I'm just loving this story...
