Belated Rathergate Entry 

Rathergate occurred mostly during the duration of my post-TO/early UBC period, where a blogging hiatus meant I needed to be slowly eased back into the habit. Nonetheless, they say a picture is a thousand words, and who knows what a picture of words is worth, so I'm just gonna link to WaPo's memo comparisons, available in the detailed Rathergate for Dummies version or the spartan Find the Differences version.
My big question with the Rathergate fiasco is, What took so long? Here is a man that's been lecturing our households for thirty years (or more), telling US the news, telling US what's happening in the world. Meanwhile, he's not even being upfront about it! It's about time that someone told HIM the news. How's that for turning the tables.

Anyway, thanks for bringing this up, I think that the more people read about it, the more they'll realize that CBS has been doing us a disservice for a hundred years or more with their faulty reporting and liberal agenda.
