UPDATE on the Dan Rather Threatened CBS Over Bush National Guard Documents story earlier.
"If the documents are not what we were led to believe, I'd like to break that story," Rather said in an interview last night. "Any time I'm wrong, I want to be right out front and say, 'Folks, this is what went wrong and how it went wrong.' "
--What Rather said in September 2004.
Despite overwhelming evidence at the time that the documents were fake, Rather steadfastly insisted that they were authentic. The only story he could have broken at the time of the quote was the story he was part of--that he was just getting around to admitting that there were problems. The only bigger story would have been if Rather had announced he was joining a 12-step program for dealing with reality.
