Auntie's Media Report has discovered Rathergate.

A little lategate, but they used the time to work out that the Burkett forgeries were an unfortunate Rather "mistake" that would discredit all journalism until the public forgets all about it in a week or two.

Perhaps they're right as far as Auntie's audience is conerned. They didn't mention Mary Mapes and her active pursuit of the documents, or Rather's partisanship in the Presidential race.

A half truth worse than no report at all.
