CBS And The Superscript
In defending the authenticity of the personal memos alleged to have been typewritten by Jerry Killian, Dan Rather is focusing almost entirely on the superscript controversy. Rather and CBS maintain that typewriters with such a superscript capability existed at the time that the memos were supposedly written.
Power Line responds to Rather's explanation:
The superscript issue is, as we've said, relatively minor, and the superscript that is found in one of the documents in Bush's records is completely different from the one in the forged documents.
This is what I expected from CBS, however: pick out one or two relatively small points and show that a typewriter that satisfied those criteria existed in 1972. Which doesn't prove, of course, that Jerry Killian had one--his family says he never typed at all--and doesn't address any of the substantive issues surrounding the memos.
I just watched the CBS Evening News explanation and it struck me as an elaborate dodge. And, amazingly, one CBS reporter had an obviously scripted conversation with Rather in which he went as far as to say that the content of the memos is "incriminating" of the president.
Incriminating? What's incriminating in this matter, Dan? Other than forgery, I mean.
