Mary Mapes: why journalists need to pass Logic 101

You remember Mary Mapes, the disgraced CBS news producer and unwitting overseer of Dan Rather's downfall. And remember the National Guard documents (re: President Bush) that were exposed as fakes by gimlet-eyed bloggers?

She still stands by 'em.

Talk about confusion over where the onus lies.

I imagine her uncovering actual letters penned by Santa Claus, which are later found to be, uh, fraudulent, and then claiming, "I did not commit bad journalism. No one has disproved those letters!"
