70. The actual way the TANG Forgeries happened I believe
A DailyKOS diary nails this one to the wall:

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2005/2/18/122051/247

"Gannon was being used by the White House to ID Mapes to send the news media in a certain direction on that story --very similar to showing him the CIA memo on Plame and the Shock and Awe scoop. In all instances, it's Gannon who is given hot information to help orchestrate the story.

THIS, PLUS THE FREEPER BUCKHEAD'S IMMEDIATE DISCOVERIES ON THE FORGERIES, PLUS THE EVIDENCE I GIVE BELOW ON ROGER STONE, MAKES IT CLEAR THE WHITE HOUSE WAS BEHIND THE TANG FORGERIES THEMSELVES.




Roger & Nydia Stone: The Unknown Man with the Envelope and Lucy Ramirez?

This is why Gannon was used to steer the story toward CBS and away from a rumor that Roger Stone, the GOP operative was responsible. Even Terry McAuliffe repeated the Stone/TANG charge. The WH wanted the press to focus on CBS, not on Roger Stone and who might have forged the documents--for it is a federal crime to forge official documents. Had the press focused on that it might have turned out differently--but the WH with Gannon and Hannity's help made the story the fall of Dan Rather.

We all now know that Bill Burkett says he was told about the TANG documents by a certain "Lucy Ramirez" and that he was given the forgeries by "an unknown man with an envelope" who turned and left after making the hand-off in Houston. Let us consider that Roger Stone, the infamous dirty trickster of the Nixon, Reagan and Bush eras, where he worked with Rove, is well known for forging documents, planting them inside opponent's campaigns and then immediately alerting the press."

That's just the beginning!
