Is CBS' Credibility Totally Gone?

CBS may be testifying before Congress ...again, about their attempt to influence an election...again. Congressman Cox of California has sent a letter to Congressman Fred Upton, Chair of the Subcommittee of Telecommunications and the Internet, of which Cox is a member. Here is part of the letter:

"Dear Chairman Upton:

This is a request that you commence a Subcommittee investigation into the continued use by CBS News of apparently forged documents concerning the service record of President George W. Bush intended to unfairly damage his reputation and influence the outcome of the 2004 presidential election.

In February 2001, the Energy & Commerce Committee held hearings calling the television networks to account for irresponsibly (and inaccurately) calling the outcome of the presidential election in Florida before the polls had closed. At those hearings, CBS News vowed that the competitive drive to get the story first would be subordinated to 'making sure we are correct,' given that the stakes --the outcome of the presidential election-- were so high....

Despite the growing abundance of the evidence that CBS News has aided and abetted fraud, the network has declined to reveal the source of the disputed documents. USA Today possesses the same documents, obtained independently from a person representing them to be authentic, and likewise is refusing to disclose his identity.

Given the shortness of time between now and the election which the apparent fraud is meant to influence, and the even shorter time before Congress is scheduled to adjourn, I strongly urge that the Subcommittee move with all deliberate speed to uncover the facts.

Thank you for your attention to this important matter within the Subcommittee's jurisdiction.

Sincerely,
Christopher Cox
U.S. Representative"

Didn't CBS vow in 2001 that the competitive drive to get the story first would be subordinated to 'making sure we are correct'? In February 2001, the Energy & Commerce Committee held hearings calling the television networks to account for irresponsibly (and inaccurately) calling the outcome of the presidential election in Florida before the polls had closed. How quickly CBS has forgotten that vow!

With the overwhelming evidence that CBS News has aided and abetted fraud, when do the stockholders of CBS stand up and say, "Enough is enough"? Liberal media is trying to stand up for Blather & company and claim that there is ample evidence that Bush skirted his Guard duties, while downplaying the significance of the forged documents used to prop up the claims. Liberals don't really seem to care that someone tried to forge documents to influence an election. Shameful.
