Fake but true, till her dying day.


Mary Mapes is coming out with a book, including her part in Rathergate, or at least her version of what happened. No telling if there will be a chapter on her outright fabrication of the police shooting in Seattle that got her run out of town.

The doc were real, that's my story and I am sticking to it. No matter that they were proved to be false. Faxed, un-faxed, animate, inanimate, cone head, no cone, it didn't matter. (Parrot-heads will get it)
-- “And right now, on the Internet, it appeared everything was falling apart. I had a real physical reaction as I read the angry online accounts. It was something between a panic attack, a heart attack, and a nervous breakdown. My palms were sweaty; I gulped and tried to breathe. . . . The little girl in me wanted to crouch and hide behind the door and cry my eyes out."

--"Faxing changes a document in so many ways, large and small, that analyzing a memo that had been faxed -- -in some cases not once, but twice -- -was virtually impossible. The faxing destroyed the subtle arcs and lines in the letters. The characters bled into each other. The details of how the typed characters failed to line up perfectly inside each word were lost."

Those pajama clad fascists! They don't believe me!
I need a tissue.
