The Jed Report Exposes CBS Duplicity
Edited on Tue Jul-22-08 11:51 PM by mikiturner
CBS has some 'splaining to do.

CBS needs to come out with an apology and an explanation. There is no excuse for this type of behavior. The video is clear. It matches up Couric's original question, and the two completely different responses. One is from the online stream, which has the actual response to the question. The other is from the edit that aired on the broadcast.

Jed Report (essential reading) has more.

1. Since this has been covered widely
(and I hope MORE widely, to come), CBS will have to be called on it.

I'm SO glad they were busted and caught. And that McCain was caught on this. He was almost SMIRKING when he gave his condescending response.

4. They better come with a response tomorrow
And hopefully the Obama campaign will have something to say on this as well. This is inexcusable.

7. A couple of comments on Jed's site
felt it was probably an honest (uninformed) mistake in the editing room. Someone who didn't realize the implications just trying to cobble together a more interesting piece.

We'll see.

6. Dreadful, but they do this all the time.

How much time did all of them spend editing Bush's incoherent grammar, not to mention their dedication
to policies that any rational person would label insane.

But I do like this example. It's so clean and undeniable. CBS - Culpable Bull Shit

17. Can someone post email addresses for CBS News?
I already sent them a comment on their website, but I'd like to know where I can email them directly.
