Mary Mapes has given her first interview since her 60 Minutes II story on President Bush’s National Guard service blew up in her face and led to her firing and the downfall of Dan Rather. Reading the story based on the interview, it’s clear Mapes has decided that book sales are not well served by a simple admission of error or by the “fake but accurate” line advanced by some of her peers. No, Mary has decided to go the full monty with this. She still believes it’s all true.
Which begs the question…Why live in the real world when the liberal fantasy land is so much more appealing. Mary wants us all to join her in this parallel universe, a universe where…
- Anita Hill spoke truth to power
- Al Gore carried Florida
- Michael Moore spoke truth to power
- John Kerry carried Ohio
- Joe Wilson spoke truth to power
- NPR is down the middle
- And, oh yes, O.J. is innocent.
As I think this quote shows, Mary is already there:
Mapes says she is continuing to investigate the source of the controversial documents whose authenticity was seriously questioned by the CBS panel.
Keep searching Mary…
The “real killers” are still out there.
