CBS Alters the Report
Get a load of this.
CBS has altered the PDF file for their report on Memogate, to prevent copying and pasting.
Here’s the page at CBS News, with modified PDF file: CBS Ousts 4 For Bush Guard Story.
Rather obviously (pardon the pun), this is aimed at making it harder for blogs to criticize the report, by stopping them from copying and pasting sections to illustrate points.
Did CBS think no one would notice?
We got a PDF copy before CBS altered it; here it is.
And here is an early copy of Appendix 4, which has also been altered at the CBS site.
UPDATE at 1/13/05 4:55:27 pm:
LGF reader Angel Piper reports that whoever turned off copying/pasting in the CBS documents also forgot to set a password on the files.
This means you can “unlock” the documents yourself if you have Adobe Acrobat 5 (the full version, not just the reader).
CBS: Pathetic … and lame!
