Is It Time, At Long Last, To Pull CBS's License?

According to Drudge, 60 Minutes was planning on running the bogus "missing explosives" story on election eve. Unfortunately, the NYT beat them to it, but then NBC news pointed out that the explosives were missing before we even invaded. In other words a non-story! But if CBS had had its way, that would've been pointed out only after the election. A couple of thoughts quickly come to mind. First, if two non-stories (the national guard memos, and the "missing explosives") are the best that the most corrupt of the MSM can come up with, then Bush must be pretty squeaky clean, indeed. Therefore he deserves re-election. Secondly, trying to throw an election during wartime on trumped up charges, and throwing it in favor of the candidate whom the enemy obviously favors (and what serious observer could possibly deny that?) is sedition. Pure and simple. Maybe CBS stands for Clearly Bidding at Sedition.

Definitely read the Drudge item. It concludes with:
CBSNEWS' plan to unleash the story just 24 hours before election day had one senior Bush official outraged.

"Darn, I wanted to see the forged documents to show how this was somehow covered up," the Bush source, who asked not to be named, mocked, recalling last months CBS airing of fraudulent Bush national guard letters.

Update: Brian Tiemann is also eloquently, well, Peeved about all of this.
