Thanks The Blue Lemur

NEW YORK, Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Later today, CBS News will address on
the air and in detail the issues surrounding the documents broadcast in the 60
MINUTES report on President Bush's service in the Texas Air National Guard. At
this time, however, CBS News states with absolute certainty that the ability
to produce the "th" superscript mentioned in reports about the documents did
exist on typewriters as early as 1968, and in fact is in President Bush's
official military records released by the White House. This and other issues
surrounding the authenticity of the documents and more on this developing
story will be reported on tonight on THE CBS EVENING NEWS WITH DAN RATHER.

Internet ‘journalist’ Matt Drudge has posted an claim which suggests that the new documents that indict President Bush’s failures in the National Guard are actually fakes.

The source of his story, Cybercast News Service, is a well-known conservative ‘news’ machine headed by L. Brent Bozell III, who also serves as the head of the Conservative Victory Committee. CNS News was founded in 1988 to combat the "

liberal bias in many news outlets".

Unlike Rupert Murdoch, whose empire includes the conservative television outlet Fox News, Bozell is not simply to be the leader of a conservative media company (the Media Research Center is also under his control); he has campaigned aggressively for conservative candidates, including Pat Buchanan. He is the nephew of conservative columnist William Buckley, and the son of Brent Bozell, Jr., who assisted Barry Goldwater with the writing of Conscience of a Conservative.

The Media Research Center, along with Bozell, took part in the drive to
eradicate PBS.
