CBS Getting Ready For Big Announcement At 2PM

Wow the suspense is killing me. CBS keeps pushing back the time for their big press conference. My guess is that something big is going down and they are getting all their ducks in a row. If I had to venture a guess, I'd say that they are going to announce that the document in question was in fact a forgery, but they are standing by the info actually on the memo. Stay tuned.....

Statement by the President of CBS News, Andrew Heyward:

"We established to our satisfaction that the memos were accurate or we would not have put them on television. There was a great deal of coroborating [sic] evidence from people in a position to know. Having said that, given all the questions about them, we believe we should redouble our efforts to answer those questions, so that's what we are doing."

I take this to mean that this will not be the last statement about this issue and in fact they are going to come back at some point next week and say that indeed the memo was bogus, but we stand by the info on the memo. They are just trying to cushion the blow of them reporting a fraudulent memo trying to take down President Bush.
