After reading the Independent Review Panel report via the PDF document I was wondering if whoever issued the document might have a sense of humor. Since the report mentions typefaces and fontstyles I wonder if they might have used the same font used in those infamous forged memos. Sure enough after comparing a section to the same text in Microsoft word using Times New Roman, I find an exact match. The font used is indeed Times New Roman.
I wonder if Mary Mapes will claim that this report was also written by Lt. Col Killian? And speaking of this fired producer, she said on Monday.
"If there was a journalistic crime committed here, it was not by me," a bitter-sounding Mapes said in a statement last night. "I am concerned that [the actions of CBS network chief Les Moonves] are motivated by corporate and political considerations – ratings rather than journalism."
This is pretty funny coming from someone who took documents from a source she labeled in an email as “our bitter little buddy.” She was of course referring to Bill Burkett. Her view of journalism of not being motivated by political considerations must be different from mine. Mapes also testified to the panel that at the end of her conversation with Joe Lockhart that she ended the conversation by saying that she could “not wait to do a tough story on your guy,” referring to Sen. Kerry. This is laughable in the extreme that she actually said such a thing. Waiting for Mary Mapes to do a tough story on John Kerry provides a good parallel for a reflection on meaning of eternity.
