Black Rock's Black Eye
God help me, I do love it so!
After CBS's Dan Rather went on 60 Minutes to dramatically unveil "a never-before-seen" memo from 1972 that revealed supposedly unflattering stuff about President Bush's national guard service, sharp eyes at the Little Green Footballs blog and FreeRepublic.com noticed something odd.
The memo was typed in font format which wasn't available in 1972. (The superscript format of "111th" is one example.) In fact, as Charles at LGF concluded after conducting an experiment, the memo was most likely composed with Microsoft Word software. Of course there was no Word software in 1972 nor was there a Microsoft.
Though CBS and Dan Rather are standing behind the memo's authenticity, Drudge is reporting that CBS has launched an internal investigation.
And Rather is refusing to reveal the source of the memo.
Perhaps a mugger assaulted Dan on the streets and stuffed the memo in his pocket.
Hey, Dan....what's the frequency?
