Fitting. Modern “journalism” equals fraud.

The Moody College of Communications at the University of Texas deserves an award for truth in advertising. They’re giving awards to future liars in the name of an exposed liar.

But you can’t receive the award unless you share an original “Ratherism” that is related in some way to Texas.

“This award is bigger than than a Dallas hairstylist’s ‘do!”

“I’d like to thank the committee for making me happier than bumblebee in a bluebonnet field!”

“And my sources are more wide-rangng than a West Texas wind farm!”

In all fairness all TV reporters are nothing but talking heads. Actors reading from a script. To call them journalists is absurd.

Documents Suggest Special Treatment for Bush in Guard [Buckhead post 47]

Howlin, every single one of these memos to file is in a proportionally spaced font, probably Palatino or Times New Roman.

In 1972 people used typewriters for this sort of thing, and typewriters used monospaced fonts.

The use of proportionally spaced fonts did not come into common use for office memos until the introduction of laser printers, word processing software, and personal computers. They were not widespread until the mid to late 90's. Before then, you needed typesetting equipment, and that wasn't used for personal memos to file. Even the Wang systems that were dominant in the mid 80's used monospaced fonts.

I am saying these documents are forgeries, run through a copier for 15 generations to make them look old.

This should be pursued aggressively.

Next year they will give it posthumously to Jack the Ripper who spilled a lot of guts and sold a lot of newspapers.

He must be close to death...and they are trying to make him think he is still a famous newsman...

Liberals make up fairy-tales and spread bull sh** like it grows on their money trees in the back yard....
