Lame media

I opened Microsoft Word, set the font to MicrosoftÂ’s Times New Roman, tabbed over to the default tab stop to enter the date “18 August 1973,” then typed the rest of the document purportedly from the personal records of the late Lieutenant Colonel Jerry B. Killian. And my Microsoft Word version, typed in 2004, is an exact match for the documents trumpeted by CBS News as “authentic.” It gets better. The fonts didn’t exist in 1973, the letters are Kerned, wrong subscripts, etc. The “cynical media” who always stand with pride about the importance of asking questions failed to even do the slightest verification on this story in their rush to judgement (oh yeah, the general cited in the memo retired in 1972 eventhough the memo is suppose to be from 1973). Cynical, but lazy reporting. ]]>
