Screen Capture Of CBS' Rather Glaring Error
— Ace

Here, at Digital Brownshirt, who first noted it.

They've now corrected the story. Without, of course, acknowledging the error that stood on their site for hours and hours.

1 It was an easy mistake to make, believing that Jefferson was a part of the Republican Culture of Corruption.

Seriously, though, anyone paying attention to Karina would have looked up Jefferson to see whether he was Dem or Rep (e.g. to look for pork politics related to levees). And there was the infamous incident of him using a National Guard unit to visit his home and spending a while inside doing who knows what but we can guess, and this got plenty of bad press (and didn't play very well even on the left, btw). This while people still needed rescuing.

2 CBS News, Dan Brown reporting:

Rosicrucian Esotericist Wiliam Jefferson, Republican -LA, grinned as he considered the freezer full of cold-hard cash and the amount of Sacred Feminine play that would get him at Trixie's Playland later that night.

That's not the new report you're looking for.

Move along.

You can go about your business.

6 I can't honestly say that I first noted it since I picked up the information and the screen capture from a Freeper thread earlier today, but thanks for the traffic anyway.

dbs=more honest than cbs

8 It's an entirely understandable mistake. After all, they are the media. They would understand better than anybody that Republicans are eviiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiil.

9 Its fake but accurate though...

10 It had to be a simple mistake. Otherwise it would have read in part:

"Ultraconservative Republican William Jefferson, the religious right hardliner from Louisiana is being rocked by a scandal that would make a dead disgraced corrupt-ridden Replublican ex-President named Nixon turn over in his grave..."

11 I don't think a Repblican could get elected dog-catcher in Louisiana. You gotta be CONNECTED down there, boys....

13 Hmmmm .....

If all of the corrupt members of Congress are Republican, isn't this going to make it very difficult for the Democrats to re-capture Congress?

14 Here is my rule of thumb for determining a politicans party in a MSM news article that does not portray the politican in a positive manner.

If the party affilation is not mentioned for multiple paragraphs (and typically on another page in a print version), the politican is a democrat.

If the party affilation is mentioned in the first paragraph, the politician is a Republican.

15 Actually it's worse in many cases, often the party affiliation simply isn't mentioned if it's a Democrat in trouble, while it's repeatedly noted if it's a Republican. That's the kind of lame bias the press tends to carry a lot.
