So Apt

The new CBS News blog:

Meet Marion Carr Knox, the host of CBS' new daytime talk show, Opportunity Knox! Ms. Knox, who is also known in a completely unrelated matter as secretary to President Bush's National Guard commander, will talk with guests in front of a live studio audience about matters related to today's active senior.
More real than reality, really...

CBS has just plain lost me now. I mean, I was willing to give those guys the benefit of the doubt, but to quote my own post, when the woman you're interviewing--the woman who would have typed the memos--says that they're not real, they're not real.

Had CBS taken the opportunity tonight to correct the record--even if only to say "Yes, these documents are forgeries, but we believe they accurately reflect reality"--odd, but whatever--this would've died down. By doggedly claiming that these memos are real when the one person with firsthand knowledge of them says they are false...well, I have to part company. I think Bush has been a lousy president--but unlike some people (on both sides), I don't think outright lies should be used to win.
