A huge score for the blogosphere
The Inquirer tries to paper over an uncomfortable fact: Authenticity of papers on Bush service at issue:
Documents unearthed by CBS News that raise doubts about whether President Bush fulfilled his obligations to the Texas Air National Guard include several features suggesting that they were generated by a computer or word processor rather than a Vietnam War-era typewriter, experts said yesterday.
Experts? Try amateurs. Amateur journalists known as bloggers. I first saw the story on the website of my fellow Homespun blogger Jeremy Chrysler. But I must say, the work done by Jeremy was expert in its thoroughness.
And a second point: there is no "might" about it: these "documents" ARE forgeries.
The people who created these documents are complete idiots.
