My Short, Obligatory, Post On The Memogate Report
Some of you may be wondering, “Hey, why hasn’t Hawkins weighed on in on the Memogate report”?
I’ll tell you why: The speed of the blogosphere has made the report anti-climactic. If you regularly read RWN, Power Line, RatherBiased, Little Green Footballs, INDC Journal, & Instapundit and the plethora of other blogs that covered the story, you knew 95% of the important details that came out in this report way back in mid-September.
So people can argue about whether Rather should have been fired (he should have) and whether or not CBS is guilty of liberal bias (stop laughing, some people are debating this), but when it’s all said and done, the blogosphere laid the smackdown on Dan Rather and CBS news by beating them to the punch on their OWN STORY.
Remember when Dan Rather said,
“If the documents are not what we were led to believe, I’d like to break that story”?
Sorry Dan, you partisan hack, the story was broken about 4 months ago by a bunch of pajama wearing, ankle-biting, bloggers…
