The 'CART' program for CBS and Rathergate
I advocate what I call the 'CART ' program for CBS -
C - Confess the documents were fabricated
A - Apologize to all concerned
R - Retract the story
T - Terminate those involved
To date, CBS has done none of these things, although they try to present the appearance of having done the first three.
Instead, they talk about 'not being able to authenticate the documents'.
This is like saying 'we're not able to find General Franco's pulse'. An insult to the public's intelligence, and an indelible stain on their own credibility.
