CBS News Draft Hoax
Bill at INDC Journal conducted has done more original reporting on the media:
Yesterday I interviewed several CBS News employees about their controversial story highlighting the possibility of a Draft reinstatement. I spoke with Richard Schlesinger, the story’s reporter, Sandra Genelius, a CBS Spokeswoman, and Linda Karas, the producer of the piece.
It’s an interesting look at how a news organization ran a story on something that is a talking point of the Kerry campaign, based entirely on various hoax e-mails that have been widely debunked, and yet seemed oblivious to the fact that people might take exception to their story.
Update (1331): John Cole makes an amusing analogy between CBS research techniques and penis enlargement spam.
