Just a thought on that CBS Bush memo

Although not a cunning parliamentary plot and a little off this blog’s topic, the controversy over in the New World set methinking. If I was a lowly military psy-ops operator or a cunning spinner for Karl Rove, I would have been tempted to set up some liberal media outlet like CBS or the New York Times in just this way. Its not exactly the famous Zinoviev letter, but more a reverse Zinoviev letter.

Whereas the, in all probability, false Zinoviev letter linked the incumbent Labour government vaguely with the Comintern’s dastardly plans, the CBS memo vaguely confuses the Kerry campaign’s planned smears in the public’s eyes as false

Both the letter and the memo contained some truths – all the better to smear. Nice bit of black arts work Karl. Or a crap piece of smearing if indeed it did come from the Kerry camp.
