CBS: â€œI am sorry.â€�
(I typed this Tuesday morning. I havenâ€™t been online until now.)
Oh, how I wish I had my T.V. hooked up in time to see Dan Rather actually say â€œI am sorry.â€� In any case, I joyfully read the news this morning.
But I donâ€™t know quite how to respond to it. I could say â€œI told you so.â€� But thatâ€™s rather obvious. And in any case, I didnâ€™t have a strong opinion on whether CBS would admit their wrong.
I could gloat. But thatâ€™s probably not very Christian and certainly not Anglican . . . well, at least outward gloating isnâ€™t.
I will say this, CBSâ€™s confession is hardly full and complete. Dan Rather said their error was made â€œin good faith and in the spirit of trying to carry on a CBS News tradition of investigative reporting without fear or favoritism.â€�
That is pure C. B. S. without the C. If you think CBS wasnâ€™t in Get Bush mode then Iâ€™ll let you pay me to collect bull manure off my land since you apparently like the stuff so much.
Rather was right about one thing, his and 60 Minutesâ€™ conduct is in the CBS tradition . . . of liberal propaganda.
