CBS News is backtracking, and it’s a shame

The CBS statement today and the story tonight are extremely unsatisfying. The once proud network news operation is sounding more and more like a desperate politician, bending words to find a safe haven where there is none. At this point, nobody cares if the “story” is true or not — a point CBS seems to have missed. It’s all about the documentation and the sloppy reporting that put them in this mess in the first place.

“The memos are fake but the content isn’t” is the lamest of lame rationalizations. Come on, guys. You blew it. Put it on the table so we can get past it. All you’re doing with this charade is making matters worse.

All of journalism is watching…perhaps closer than they ever have.
