Rohirrim, the major media isn't looking at Bush and his record, they are looking to see how far this goes from Rathers nose and into the DNC. They are investigating whether CBS did this on purpose and if there is a connection between Kerry and Rather
This is now being called Rathergate (with the th superscripted)
Yeah, I know. Now this story has the whiff of scandal, so the press is going hog wild over it. They showed very little interest into whether or not the allegations against Bush were true. My point is, I just wish they'd invest as much investigative zeal when our President is proposing to take the country to war as they do on this insipid little "Rathergate." It might be a fun scandal and dismantle Rather's career (not to mention the rep of CBS) but nobody is going to die over it.
That's my whole point. The scandal sells, the war is ho-hum. As far as where the documents came from? Given that nobody seems to know, it's all speculation at this point. But of course, speculation is almost as much fun as scandal.
