A vehicle for venting on philosophy, religion, and the general state of things. Proprietor: C. W. Powell

Saturday, September 18, 2004 CBS' bizarre idea of 'authenticity': "This bizarre episode in the midst of a venomous presidential campaign almost defies comprehension. CBS News says it remains convinced that the content of the memos on the quality of then-Lieutenant George W. Bush's service is correct, even if the authenticity of the memos themselves is open to question.

"Say what? Is this the new standard for CBS News, a standard so low that it could be used as a limbo bar? Suddenly the content of the memos trumps their authenticity -- or lack of it. If CBS News and Dan Rather really believe pettifoggery is compatible with responsible journalism, they ought to just go ahead and turn off the lights. "
