Memogate

Bring in the clowns. No political bias confirmed in the CBS report, but Dick Thornburgh was champing at the bit to call it that. Overzealousness? Certainly. The producers should have tracked down the source, but didn't. That's the journalistic flaw.

Here's the deal on the press: when the hammer a president they're called biased for their perceived voting party affiliation. When they reverently affirm his agenda sans criticism they're PR hacks. What we want is something in between where the merits and facts of the story take us as reporters. Bush did all of the things cited in the story, They destroyed the real memos and someone recreated them, but even this can't be determined from copies as the mob-bloggers claim.

Find the source.
