CBS Memo Followup

Sunday's Washington Post finally puts the nails into the coffin over the legitimacy of CBS's memos concerning Bush's service in the Texas Air National Guard. They hired their own certified document experts who concluded that the typography of the memos, specificially the kerning, was definitely impossible on typewriters of the early 1970s. The story also chronicles how CBS researched the memos and eventually came to the decision to air the report without an exhaustive analysis of the memos' authenticity. The Post also has a thorough graphic that points out numerous other problems with the memos.
