Columbo, call your office!

Lucianne points out this interesting New York Observer story by Joe Hagan: “CBS News’ boss hired private eye to source memo.” Hagan takes at face value the panel report’s failure to conclude that the 60 Minutes memos were fakes; it helps if you’ve read the report, which Hagan clearly hasn’t. See also Hagan’s interview with Amy Goodman of the far-left Democracy Now radio program: “The CBS three won’t slink off.”
Even if Hagan had only read Power Line or Little Green Footballs, he would have realized that those documents can’t be reproduced on a typewriter and otherwise bear earmarks of fraud. Hagan seems to think the real story here is that Mary Mapes may have been wronged by CBS — taking journalistic cluelessness to a level previously unseen with this story.
