On September 8, 2004, CBS’s “60 Minutes” used forged government documents as the basis for a story that attacked the military record of then-President George W. Bush. It was bad enough that CBS used forged government documents, but what made it worse was that CBS aired this story during the presidential election and timed the airing to coincide with the rollout of Democrat John Kerry’s “favorite son” campaign theme. CBS thus provided the “news” upon which the Democrat candidate based his attack ads. The CBS story was quickly disproven and eventually forced CBS into personnel changes and investigations. Dan Rather...

An important anniversary passed this month and predictably received no attention. *** On September 8, 2004, CBS’s “60 Minutes” used forged government documents as the basis for a story that attacked the military record of then-President George W.

Powerline ^ | 10.21.18 | Scott Johnson
I was asked by our local chapter of the Cardozo Society — an affinity group of Jewish lawyers of which I am a member — to speak over lunch as a counterpart to ABA Foundation Fellow and historian Victoria Saker Woeste on the subject of fake news at the society’s October 8 continuing legal education program. Ms. Woeste was the featured speaker. Her theme was that the term “fake news” is anti-Semitic in origin and that President Trump’s use of it, knowingly or not, is wrongful. Her talk expanded on her Washington Post column (accessible via Outline here) making this...

Did anyone just hear Rush give credit to Free Republic? First he named the Freeper Buckhead then second time he said Burkehead. Pretty cool.

Truth Isn't True Selling a big lie. October 14, 2015 Bruce Bawer 6 625 The movie Truth isn't yet officially out, but it's been the subject of enough early reviews to establish that it strongly communicates one great and important truth: that if you want to sell a Big Lie that's been definitely and very publicly exposed as a lie, just wait a decade or so and then make an all-star Hollywood movie presenting that lie as the unvarnished truth. Promote the hell out of it. Then sit back and watch history get rewritten in the mind of a whole...

RUSH: This movie with Mary Mapes about Dan Rather and this National Guard business. You have Robert Redford as Rather. You have Cate Blanchett as Mary Mapes. This is what the left always does. Dan Rather and Mapes totally fake the story. They totally made up and forged documents, and they were caught red-handed. And what did they do? At the time, the other two leading anchors, ABC and NBC were Peter Jennings and Tom Brokaw, and they put together an awards banquet for Dan Rather. This was in weeks of all this happening, because they realized that what was...

Front Page Magazine ^ | April 8, 2015 | Daniel Greenfield
A decade after Dan Rather’s career ended over an attempt to pass off forged documents about President Bush’s military service, Robert Redford is working on a movie about the case. The movie is based on CBS producer Mary Mapes’ book “Truth”, which denies the truth that the documents were not written on a 70s typewriter, but in Microsoft Word.
