PoliPundit’s Lorie Byrd has dubbed this one RatherGate. I love it.
Are they definitely fake? I’d prefer to sit this one out until the end. From what I’ve scraped together unwillingly, though, the superscipt is definitely something that’s not a smoking gun. Still, clever-ish.
The “th” is not the smoking gun because, however umlikely, it could have been created in 1972 if someone really wanted to do that and had a big budget and a lot of extra time.
However the letter “p” in New Times Roman is a real smoking gun as the proportions were changed slightly by Mergenthaler, Apple and Microsoft when that font was transformed from lead to computer type.
For the latter reason and many many others there is no question that three of the four letters are fakes.
I will never watch CBS News program ever again.
