4. The bigger issue here isn't that Crash McLame got it wrong, it's that CBS tried to cover it up....
...THAT'S the huge issue here...someone KNEW that Grandpa had gaffed again and CHANGED THE ANSWER so as to NOT make him look like a doddering old fool...

CBS is guilty of intellectual dishonesty at the very least, and outright, blatant favouritism at worst. Neither is acceptable from an alleged "news organisation"...People need to be very publicly fired for this...and Perky needs to be brought to task about her obvious bias...

Just to be clear, a MAJOR news organisation CHANGED THE ANSWER OF AN INTERVIEWEE (for whatever reason) and presented it as fact....That SIMPLY cannot be allowed to go unpunished...
