Note to self: sell any big media stocks in my portfolio immediately. Just how stupid is Dan Rather, anyway? I guess it's been so long since they've been challenged, besides tiny, ignorable things in the letters to the editor column, that attacks on a story are interpreted as attacks on them, leading to more stupid statements on TV. Remember, it's not the crime that gets you, it's the coverup. 6:30 CNN headline news mentioned that independent experts thought the documents were not genuine, but that was a tiny part of the blurb. If I was only watching CNN I could reasonably interpret this as a defensive move by Bush.
