run that by me again?

I will be watching at 5:00 today.

CBS Now Says Announcement Will Be Made at 5:00 p.m. Sources: Will admit docs are false but content is not

Damn! Now THAT'S the way a major news network needs to handle this kind of scandal: Just thrust out the old jaw, put a little bit of agressive square in the shoulders and say, "All our evidence is bullshit, but the story is true anyway!!!"

Yeah.

When you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop digging. CBS doesn't seem to understand that fact.

And the sad part is, CBS ran the story as a political bombshell, discovered that nobody really gave a shit about 30 year-old TANG records for Bush, then had their own home-made bomb blow up in their faces. Oh, they MEANT to pull a Jihad, but they never wanted to be suicide bombers exploding far off-target.

That's why they're willing to keep right on digging lying.

Seriously, I'm enjoying this waaaaaay too much.

Every day I hear CBS's next move, think "They can't possibly think this will work do they?" yet they continue.

They aren't even using a backhoe to dig anymore, they've upgraded to bunker-busters to go deeper... at this rate we may need to worry about magma pouring from the hole where CBS's headquarters used to be.

Watch for that to slide back to 6:30PM.

Their credibility is shot, but this is a ratings avalanche for them.

Listening to FOX news this morning, the usual morning ritual with my cup o' joe, and damned if they didn't mention you BLOGGERS again. Ain't that cool?
