DUmmie FUnnies 11-10-05 ("Fired CBS News Producer Unrepentant")
I LOVE the fact that Mary Mapes is now making the rounds of the media circuit and plugging her pathetic fiction book defending her use of FORGED documents for a SeeBS story last year. The more she blabs the more folks out there see that most of the MSM, as Bernie Goldberg has claimed, is BIASED. And remember. Mary Mapes is TYPICAL of the producers in the MSM television newsrooms. Of course, Mary does have a few staunch defenders. Does it surprise anybody that such defenders are from DUmmieland as you can see in this THREAD titled, "Fired CBS News Producer Unrepentant." As usual the laughable DUmmie delusions defending their beloved Mary Mapes are in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, wondering what Mary's DUmmie screen name is, is in the [brackets]:
Fired CBS News Producer Unrepentant
["Why should I have to prove that documents upon which I base my stories are authentic. It's up to others to prove they are fake." ...And now on to the rest of this ABC News story...]
In her first interview since being fired, former CBS News producer Mary Mapes maintains that her controversial "60 Minutes II" story on President Bush's National Guard service was "true" and that "no one has proved that the documents were not authentic."...
In her interview with ABC News chief investigative correspondent Brian Ross, to be broadcast Wednesday morning on "Good Morning America," Mapes says she is unrepentant about her role. "I don't think I committed bad journalism. I really don't," she says....
[Yeah, proportional spacing and superscripts will magically appear if you photocopy 1970s era documents long enough, Mary. And now that Miss Mapes has shared her delusions with us, let us hear from the equally delusional DUmmies on this topic...]
Why on earth should she be repentant? She's one of the few journalists out there trying to do her job.
[Mary Mapes has met the journalistic standards of DUmmieland---basing a news story on FORGED documents.]
Go Mary, go Mary, go Mary go
Tell the story again. America needs to be reminded of how stinky and shameful the military record is for our Usurper-in-Chief.
Only good can come from this.
[True. Only good can come from this because the more Mary Mapes speaks, the more the public can see how delusional and biased Mary and her Leftist cohorts are. Go Mary, go Mary, go Mary go. Continue to make fools out of yourself and your friends.]
He lied to the American people
it is Mary's fault for reporting it? Has this country gone f*cking insane!!!!!!
[Yes. The country is so insane that they actually require that news reports be based on AUTHENTIC documents, NOT forgeries.]
And they still haven't proven * is not a deserter
[Sigh! Proving a negative? HEY! Prove you're not a pervert.]
DU proved her right. We all know she is right.
[DUmmieland proved those documents were authentic? News to me.]
How is putting forth an obviously faked memo newsworthy?
[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]
The memo was NOT obviously faked. I'm one of the ones who used an IBM Executive typewriter back then. It had proportional spacing.
[And superscripts, Che Guevara?]
It has been proved to the satisfaction of DU that the docs were legit
[And it has been proved to the satisfaction of DUmmieland that there really is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow where John Kerry was inaugurated on Jan. 20.]
The secretary said the story was probably true. It's just the piece of paper it was typed on that was in doubt.
[Sounds like a "ringing endorsement" to me except for that nasty little fact about the forged documents.]
they should air the story
at this point, the story itself is a story.
[Yeah. Who cares that the story was based on forged documents?]
She was dumber than a box of rocks
1) Bill Burkett gives CBS what he says are the memos.
2) Burkett provides CBS with the name of the person he claims were the memos' source, a former National Guard buddy of his named George Conn.
3) Mary Mapes fails for some unfathomable reason to call the alleged source to verify Burkett's story.
4) When questions surrounding the memos surface, Burkett changes his story to say that his actual source was really somebody else, a person named "Lucy Ramirez". Burkett is revealed as a whack job.
5) CBS finally gets around to calling Burkett's original named source, George Conn tells CBS he wasn't the source for Burkett's memos, and that he knows absolutely nothing about the whole thing.
6) Mary Mapes could have prevented this monumental embarrassment to CBS News simply by adhering to basic high school journalism standards -- calling the original source to verify facts.
[We regret to inform you that your DUmmieLand Tombstoning ceremony is about to begin.]
She fell for the oldest Rovian trick in the book: using bogus documents... ... to "debunk" a real story. Alas, she deserves her fate.
[Lucy Ramirez was really Karl Rove dressed in drag.]
cheering a brave woman.
[HOORAH!!! She's brave enough to make a complete fool of herself in public.]
