Forged Documents: A CBS Disaster

I'll be honest: I don't know where this controversy is going (no one does) but it has the makings of a really rich story. Why? Many, many reasons, chief among them that Dan Rather was so triumphant in his tellling of the story; the left was so gleeful about it (all the major lefty newspapers ran the story on the front page); the Democrats pushed the story so hard; and the problems with the documents are so painfully obvious.

It is moving very fast, but here are links that will help you keep up:

The Washington Post (a story below the fold, but still pretty damning);

Byron York, National Review (the only article I've seen that actually relies on the documents already in existence to determine whether the CBS documents fit in);

The Prowler (this is really good stuff; the site keeps going down because Matt Drudge linked to it, but a cached version is available)

Thomas Lipscomb, Chicago -Sun Times

John Podhoretz, New York Post

Power Line, which broke the story, really made it happen, and surely will be covering it all day;

Steven Hayes in The Weekly Standard (quickly becoming outdated but still good basic info).
