A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

"Reliable Sources": CNN/The Washington Post's Howard Kurtz had book-peddling fraud Mary Mapes on this morning, and to say that her performance was pathetic may be the understatement of the year. Hopefully, Mapes will now quickly disappear from public view -- I was sick of her a year ago.

Mapes was followed by Powerlineblog.com's Scott Johnson and Salon's Eric Boehlert. Boehlert was unconcerned about the provenance of the documents because, though he didn't use these exact famous words, they were fake but accurate.

Johnson did a commendable job in pointing out that they weren't, in fact, accurate at all -- and that's what CBS' famous Thornburgh/Baccardi had determined.

From a journalistic standpoint, the only thing that really matters is that the documents that the CBS report was based on were fabrications. There's no getting around that one basic truth, and everything else is superfluous.
