Skip to comments.Forged Documents (electronic overlay of CBS PDF file and Word document) [perfect match]
Posted on 09/09/2004 11:27:55 PM PDT by Cableguy
And for reference, heres my image where the original PDF document from the CBS News site is overlaid on my Microsoft Word document, showing the exact match of line spacing, character spacing, and character forms:
For verification purposes, and to show that I played no tricks with spacing or margins, here is the Microsoft Word document that I created.
Since several people have commented on the one noticeable mismatchthe slightly lower th in 187thI should point out that this difference goes away when the Word document linked above is printed. My screenshot shows the screen display in Microsoft Word, compared to the printed document from CBS News. When you print my Word document, the superscript th exactly matches the CBS News document.
welcome to 8 hours ago!
Don't lose this...
That's what the doc looks like? There ain't a typewriter on earth that prints that pretty. The rat operatives are so used to getting away with everything, they've become arrogant. Well, this would have worked four years ago, but the Old Media ain't the only game in town any more. too bad the aging boomers are too stoned to realize it!
In the 1980's WordStar and an IBM XT would print a document as it appeared on the screen. With the advent Microsoft word and WYSIWYG(What you see is what you get) All of that went down the tubes. Got a nice letter written in word? Looks good on the screen? But wait...if you did not format it using tabs and such...you are in for a big surprise when you print it out. Never been able to figure that out. Maybe someone here can answer that question.
Anyways this is one great day for freepers. I have not seen so much to cheer about since Sore Loserman.
GAME SET MATCH
You know I gotta believe CBS knew there was something funny about that document, but just didn't care.
I just checked cbsnews.com and they are hiding behind the Hurricane Ivan story. I probably would too, in all fairness.
I posted this on another thread and no one made anything of it.
The language here is even suspicious. Bush was not a very important guy back then. This is written like he was one of the biggest wheels around....just an opinion.
'MFR' or 'MEMORANDUM FOR THE RECORD' was the terminology used, and words on the subject line were all caps.
Man, this stinks to high heaven. Hopefully the US Justice Dept is being flooded with emails demanding an investigation. And why not the House and Senate? Don't they have "oversight" or "investigative" committees who stick their noses into this sort of thing?
Oh what a web we weave when first we practice to deceive. CBS and the rest of the MSM - the Old media - with their JFKs - Journalists for Kerry - have been working overtime to bury Bush since he won the election. Do they stop at anything or is any lie too big for them?
I knew someone had posted this before, but it was buried in one of hundreds of posts. What is important is the text by the Little Green Football guys that go along with the image.
It is so OBVIOUS!! that this is a fake. I wrote a report in the exact same font this very day and it looks the same.
Geez... anyone can run it on a dirty copier 3-4 times and make it look like an "old document".
CBS, you lose.
Make a copy on a cheap copier, then run THAT copy through the copier, then THAT copy, etc., and you finally get an "old" looking "document". The forgeries are that lame.
Well, typewriters can't auto-center!
Yep. They'll have rather wrapped around a lightpole in South Florida by Sunday night. Either the forgeries will blow over or he'll be blown away.
You should email your findings to the Little Green Football, PowerLine, and Drudge. Those are the guys running with this.
