The entire Power Line gang gathered for the latest episode of the Power Line Show. They talked about Rathergate and the absurd new movie mis-titled Truth, which just opened in Toronto. Harry MacDougald, the famous “Buckhead” of the Rathergate story, joined the group and related his part in one of the biggest journalism stories of modern times.

From Rathergate, the gang moved on to Iran and the tortured history of Corker-Cardin, which was abandoned today in the House and filibustered in the Senate. Paul offered his thoughts on the legal ramifications of the fizzling out of Corker-Cardin. And finally, a story that combines Iran and media scandal: the New York Times’sJew tracker,” which deserves to live in infamy. It was a spirited session, to say the least!

    Interesting that the identity of the individual or individuals responsible for that fake memo were never revealed after all these years.

    I can’t believe they’re still this clueless.

    By the way, I’m convinced that Rathergate was a necessary precursor to Obama-birtherism.  When questions arose, the defenders of Obama posted a modern-day birth certificate, recently generated by the state of Hawaii.  To my knowledge, we’ve never seen the original.  Having been through Rathergate, many found it unpersuasive.  And having seen Joe the Plumber’s treatment by state civil servants in Ohio, trust of Hawaii officials was lacking as well.

    Don’t get me wrong — the microfiche birth announcement from a Hawaii newspaper settled the matter.
