INDCJOURNAL interviews CBS reporters about their rather dubious draft-reinstatement story (based on debunked hoax emails) that was mentioned below.

Best bit, from producer Linda Karas: "The truth of the e-mails were absolutely irrelevant to the piece, because all the story said was that people were worried. Itís a story about human beings that are afraid of the draft. We did not say that this (e-mail) was true, itís just circulating. We are not verifying the e-mail."

And people accuse bloggers of trading in rumor?

UPDATE: In a related matter the folks at CrushKerry are telling Congressional Republicans to back off of RatherGate. "We Don't Want (Or Need) Your Help."
