The Telling Questions about Rathergate
I will be blogging more later (duty calls for now), but want to pose a couple of questions first thing on the morning after the Thornberg report. Referring to the "60 Minutes II" story on President Bush and the Texas Air National Guard, Bernie Goldberg asked questions something like these last night on Hannity & Colmes:
Can you imagine CBS coming out with a story like that, moving so quickly and cutting so many corners, if the story had been about John Kerry? Do you think Mary Mapes would have contacted the Bush campaign to assist a source who was admittedly trying to derail the Kerry campaign?
We all know the answers to those questions, and I think those answers tell us just about everything we need to know about why the blogosphere is such a blessing to fair and open political discourse in this country.
