— Ace Without noting previous error, CBS News slips in mention of Beverly Cocco's partisan connections to Parents Against the Draft
This is sort of what I expected, but I'm still surprised. But Rathergate has a clip of the story as it actually aired-- no mention of an ideological affiliation, and they don't seem eager to correct the record.
No mention about the sham emails CBS endorsed, but I expect we'll be seeing a rowback on that score shortly. Another rowback seen by at most thousands, when the actual dishonest broadcast was viewed by millions.
This is a corrupt organization. I said it, I meant it-- corrupt.
There are affiliate phone numbers and emails at the sidebar. It would probably be a good time to use them.

You know -- a college intern, or something.
These people are dinosaurs.

As for pointing more fingers at Dan Rather, I'm glad NBC did not. That sort of behavior is rarely wise on a news show. In fact, that's the behavior that has us all riled up, reaching conclusions instead of providing facts.
