CBS News and anchorman Dan Rather have entered the journalistic
equivalent of one of Dante's circles of Hell, forced to live forever with

Faked Food Lion resumes. Staged GM pickup truck explosions. Janet
Cooke's profile of Jimmy the 8-year-old coke addict. Jayson Blair's
phony travelogues from "West Virginia."
The CBS story is a hoax and a fraud, and a cheap and sloppy one at
that. It boggles the mind that Dan Rather and CBS continue to defend it.
