In his Weekly Standard column titled Whitewash, Jonathan Last airs his disappointment with the report on the disputed CBS TexANG memos.
In his mind, the report did not adequately answer three key questions:
1. Where did the documents come from?
2. Were the documents legitimate?
3. Why did CBS News run with the story?
Eh. I was doubtful we would get a full indictment of bias from this report, and I basically agree with John Hinderaker of PowerLine, in that anyone who reads certain key passages of the report should be fully convinced that there was clear bias.
The problem, of course, is that most people won't read the report and will only see the recap, which invariably cites the lack of a decisive judgment on the documents in question, etc. But at the end of the day, four people were fired (well, one was fired and three were asked to resign). To me, that is a clear enough message.
