I don't see anything in the posting above to support the headline.

Apparently CBS was conned into including a forgery, but the Bush story didn't depend on the (seemingly) forged letter - it was a minor and late addition. And anyway, while the supposed writer had died, his secretary from that time told CBS said that the letter did accurately represent his views about Bush's non-service.

So yes, Rather is correct in saying he reported a true story.

In the quote above, Rather didn't say anything about the dubious letter, despite Mich-again's bogus headline.

re: #1 John Q

If you click through on the link that says he defended the report you find this quote:

"I believed it at the time, or I wouldn't have put them on. I believed it ever since, and believe it to this day. And I remark, the longer we go and nobody comes forward with proof that the documents were not what they report to be, the more I believe it."

The report may have been true but the documents were obviously fake...

Rather is an idiot has-been.

John Q,

The documents were the story. Without them, there would have been no story, just some decades old rumors.

The documents CBS put on display were clearly bogus, it would be silly to even go back and try to defend them as anything other than that.

That Dan Rather holds on to the notion that the documents were never proven to be bogus is utterly ridiculous.
