Patterico asks, “How clueless is the Los Angeles Times?”
How brilliant is this though?
CBS sets up an independant panel with Thornburgh in it. Now look at the two outcomes.
1. Panel gives CBS a pass on the forged document issue. Response from CBS: I told you so!
2. Panel states CBS had a huge lapse in jugdement when pressed to make a partisan story. Response from CBS: Thornburgh is on the panel and he is tied to Rove! Unfair!
If you ask me, CBS is sitting in a good position right now.
