Rathergate forges on.

Last night on 60 Minutes 2 Dan Rather went on to defend his story from last week. I don't have time to go into it this evening. It is really really pathetic how low CBS has sunk. But apparently they are going to keep on sinking. To keep current on this story head over to the Rathergate blog.

Here's basically what happend on the show last night.

Lileks sums it up beautifully.
It boggles, it really does: the story is true, the evidence is faked, but the evidence reflects the evidence we have not yet presented that proves our conclusion – ergo, we’re telling the truth. They just can’t give it up; they just can’t say the memos were typed by the guy in the “Dude, you’re getting a Dell!” commercial and leave it be, because that that puts the knife in the story regardless of what happened. So they keep going.

Read the whole thing.

Great "Best Of The Web" today too.
