Skip to comments.CBS Source's Attorney: "Bill Burkett Just Got Burnt by Dan Rather"
Posted on 09/22/2004 5:07:18 PM PDT by SwinneySwitch
David Van Os said that it was CBS intention from the outset to cast Bill Burkett in an unfavorable light. Dan Rather and CBS were intending all along to use the interview to dump on (Burkett), Van Os said. What we got was a bunch of mealy-mouthed bull****.
Van Os said that Burkett had to think long and hard about what to do with the documents in his possession. Bill was very reluctant to give CBS the documents; because he did not want to become caught up in what he knew would be created if he did, Van Os said.
Bill did not go to CBS, CBS came to him. CBS spent all summer trying to pressure and coax Bill into letting them have copies of the documents that they believed he had
How did cBS know that he HAD the documents???
No honor among thieves.
This is turning into a circular firing squad. Cool!
MABYE A WEE LITTLE VOICE THAT USE TO BE KLINTOONS MOUTH PIECE?
OK, how did Karl Rove do THIS?
I think van Os is an expert on the substance.
So the orcs and the urk-hai have begun
to fight amongst themselves.
Time to get out the comfy chair, get
some popcorn, and open a fine brew.
Man, that Karl Rove is one smart dude. I'm glad he's on our side!
Simple. He's infiltrated CBS with moles. < /DUmmie rant>

>>>...CBS intention from the outset to cast Bill Burkett in an unfavorable light.
Burkett does a good job casting himself in an unfavorable light pretty well all by himself - he don't need no stinkin' tv network to do it...
Burkett believes that it happened because the White House is beaming paranoid thoughts into his brain.
Burkett's a double agent, who was turned by Karl Rove, just waiting for the 2004 September Surprise!
Success has a hundred fathers; failure is an orphan.
"Bill did not go to CBS, CBS came to him. CBS spent all summer trying to pressure and coax Bill into letting them have copies of the documents that they believed he had"
Okay. Let me get this straight.
So, Billybobboy didn't have the documents.
But CBS thought he did.
And kept pressuring him to cough them up.
But he didn't have them.
But then he, all of the sudden, did have them!
And then, he gave them to CBS. Who identified him as their unidentified "unimpeachable" source (man, you can't make this stuff up).
So that they could then "burn" Billbobboy and make him out to be a corrupt, psycho, evil, nut.
Which in turn casts a rather dubious light on CBS' news judgment, character judgment, not to say, basic intelligence.
They intended all along to "burn" their "unimpeachable" source.
These guys must have something really, really big to hide, something really, really criminal, to be so incoherent.
Mr. Van Os, if you're gonna lie to us, at least tell lies that are internally consistent.
Maybe C-BS is reach critical mass, and go into a super-nova! They would even try to BS their way out of that too!!
