CBS Attempts to Sidestep Hypocrisy
CBS has dropped a 60 Minutes segment on the [illegitimate] roots of the Iraq War, calling it “inappropriate” at this time. See news item. But why? Was it because CBS was to claim in the nixed segment that the war was caused by the administration's belief in "documents" (which later turned out to be false) that pointed to weapons of mass destruction? Sound familiar? Was CBS really afraid of inappropriateness or of being accused of hypocrisy? James Taranto of the WSJ thinks it is the latter. See his commentary of September 27, 2004 from the WSJ here.
