At Home with the CBS Evening News

NRO’s Duncan Maxwell Anderson on Dan Rather and CBS.

In CBS's comfortable little TV world catering to liberals in their living rooms, a felony has been committed: falsifying government documents. Dan Rather, or someone who works for him, probably knows who committed the forgery. Anyone who impedes the investigation, even after the fact, also becomes an accessory, and could go to jail.

And by the way, even if you're a journalist, the right to forge documents isn't covered by the First Amendment.

If I worked for CBS, the words “felony” and “accessory” would scare me into ponying up the forger.
