CBS Docu-gate

So the Question is: What did CBS know, and when did they know it?

Given the yeoman work of the Blogosphere, specifically Powerline and Little Green Footballs, among others on this issue, it looks like CBS either was 1. duped, 2. willfully and blindly reckless in publishing the documents or 3. complicit in their publication.

CBS needs to tell us which one of the above is the case.

CBS however, still has the allegations story, along with the fraudulent documents up on their site: New Questions On Bush Guard Duty

Their site states:

60 Minutes has obtained documents that suggest President Bush received favorable treatment in the National Guard. And the man who says he got Mr. Bush into the Guard speaks out for the first time. Read the documents.

How long it will take CBS to retract this story or drop it down a memory-hole is anyone's guess.
