"60 Minutes" broadcast: a half-hour segment about how the U.S. government
was snookered by forged documents purporting to show Iraqi efforts to
purchase uranium from Niger."

Racist.

Excerpt:

Of course, the President SOTU claim about Niger uranium
was not based on the fraudulent documents mentioned in
the CBS story, but on British intelligence, which was validated by the
Butler report.

The article goes on to quote:

Joshua Micah Marshall, a Washington Monthly contributing
writer and a Web blogger who had been collaborating
with "60 Minutes" producers on the uranium story. "Here
we had a very important, well-reported story about
forged documents that helped lead the country to war.
And then it gets bumped by another story that relied
on forged documents."

[Josh Marshall? He's not an objective journalist. He's just another
pajama-clad opinion blogger. Yes, but he's a partisan liberal Democrat.
Oh, okay, so he is an objective journalist.]

To recap: The CBS people originally intended to falsely
accuse the administration of relying on forged documents,
but then found what they considered to be an even juicier
way to bring down the administration by using forged
documents of their own. Now Newsweek is attempting to
help salvage CBS's reputation by validating CBS original bogus story.
