49. ok, point taken.Someone at CBS should have inserted the ONE Freakin' word in the Rather/Mapes memo

 

(btw, I myself have eaten at all those places, and others worse, and better, especially during Sandy when anything to eat was better than nothing
(cue in Tom T Halls a week in a county jail and his line about bologna sandwiches).

so yes, Brooks should have done his homework, or better yet, someone on the NY Times should have read what he wrote and changed it.

that is what at least in the past, they paid people specific to do.

but then IMHO the Jayson Blair incident was not an oops mistake, it was a set-up by someone to do to the media what was done

and someone at CBS should have just insert ONE FREAKING WORD in the 100% true content that Dan Rather said and Mary Mapes wrote
They should have said the freakin' memo was handed to them as a COPY in the first place and the bullshit that happened would not have existed.

So why did CBS not parse each word, and was it because they wanted Rather out and were in on it, or were they distracted by Janet Jackson's nipplegate episode from the Super Bowl?
(and was that because Janet was black and would it have been such a big deal if it was say someone who wasn't?)

so, your point is taken
they should do that. The resources are there.

(and the memo btw was never proven false anyhow).
