I just watched the replay of Dan Rather’s CBS Evening News broadcast on FOX (it’s rebroadcast of tonight’s CBS Evening News, it’s not yet broadcast here on the West Coast), close-up of Rather as he “explains” and provides “apology” on behalf of CBS…
Rather betrays his well practiced straight face with a slight but visible eyebrow twitch (his left, viewer’s right) when he says, “…CBS got the documents from Bill Burkett…” and at the mention of “Bill Burkett,” the eyebrow makes a jump, albeit a highly controlled Dan Rather jump.
The video is replaying on FOX this afternoon if anyone’s — ahem — interested.
The drawn out episodic calendar surrounding this admission by CBS isn’t due to sloppiness or represent a demure attempt to be exact by CBS, but, to my view, represents the time necessary to…to…well, to twist: ‘Source? What source?’
