A day late and a dollar short 

Dan Rather:

While stopping short of saying the memos purportedly written by Bush's late squadron commander in the Guard were fake, Rather also is no longer defending their authenticity.

"After extensive additional interviews, I no longer have the confidence in these documents that would allow us to continue vouching for them journalistically," he said. "I find we have been misled on the key question of how our source for the documents came into possession of these papers. That, combined with some of the questions that have been raised in public and in the press, leads me to a point where -- if I knew then what I know now -- I would not have gone ahead with the story as it was aired, and I certainly would not have used the documents in question."

What, you couldn't immediately tell when you read it that the memo was typed in MS Word? Geez.
