All the news that's fit to forge

My God, Dan... just stop, already. It's like he can't help himself.

Three weeks after he denounced the internet as being "filled with rumors," the embattled CBS anchor ran a story on his Tuesday "Evening News" program hoping to stir up fear of an impending military draft.

In a story that was a textbook example of slipshod reporting, CBS reporter Richard Schlesinger used debunked internet hoax emails and an unlabeled interest group member to scare elderly "Evening" viewers into believing that the U.S. government is poised to resume the draft.

"My name's Dan, and I'm a hoaxaholic"

The good news is that the technology used to produce those e-mails apparently existed when they were claimed to have been written.

Also in the CBS report was the fact (What a fact was doing in there I don't know!) that there are two bills in congress to start the draft.

However, they left out the FACT that both bills are sponsored by Democrats.

See, Doug, CBS is getting better. It's not reporting Lies as much, only incomplete facts!
