60 Minute story on forged documents bumped by forged documents

September 22, 2004 6:36 PM

Here's some irony for ya. Guess what got bumped from 60 Minutes so the now infamous segment on Bush's National Guard service with the forged documents could air?

A segment on the fake Niger uranium documents.

Remember those? 60 Minutes spent six months investigating the scandal, while the FBI dragged its feet. They even landed an interview with Elisabetta Burba, the first person to get the fake documents, and her source, Rocco Martino. Details in Newsweek.

Wow. 60 Minutes had a choice between those two stories, and they went with the National Guard story? Now which story do you think is more relevant and important to the 2004 election? Or let's forget the election - which story is more important, period? I know what my answer is.
