How bad does the media want Bush to lose? So badly they're willing to let their credibility go down in flames with the farce of incriminating forged documents.
Congratulations, CBS; now go back to scare stories about crooked nursing homes. How dare
you call yourselves unbiased? Or decent human beings, even? If there was ever a sign that the media establishment as we now know it needed to be humbled, this is it.
Now, the question is: What will their response be? If, next week, 60 Minutes
performed a major act of contrition - acknowledging their bias, accepting that the desperate hatred CBS' so-called news operation has for George Bush led them to get incredibly sloppy, and promising to actually become real journalists
again - I think I'd have a great deal of respect for that. But it seems unlikely. Being honest isn't as important to these hacks as being "right."
Geez, I go out grocery shopping for a few hours, and look what I miss...
