Narrowing the Focus

It would appear that other segments of the media are closing in on a main suspect of the source of those fake CBS memos:
Documents allegedly written by a deceased officer that raised questions about President Bush's service with the Texas Air National Guard bore markings showing they had been faxed to CBS News from a Kinko's copy shop in Abilene, Tex., according to another former Guard officer who was shown the records by the network.

Howard Kurtz is even reporting that Dan Rather is now having doubts as well:
"If the documents are not what we were led to believe, I'd like to break that story," Rather said in an interview last night. "Any time I'm wrong, I want to be right out front and say, 'Folks, this is what went wrong and how it went wrong.' "

The Washington Times is on the trail as well and catching the same scent about the source.

Ann Coulter is hitting the nail on the head, as usual.

Of course, Rather continues to act like a DNC spin master and insist that everyone change the subject and question Bush, instead of his shoddy reporting:
A defensive Dan Rather suggested last night that although he may have used forgeddocuments in a CBS report criticizing President Bush's military service, the "thrust" of his report was true. "Those who have criticized aspects of our storyhave never criticized the heart of it, the major thrust of our report," he toldviewers on "60 Minutes." "George Bush received preferential treatment to getinto the National Guard and, once accepted, failed to satisfy the requirements of his service."
