[BREAKING NEWS] CBS To Retract Bush Memos

CBS News reportedly plans to issue a statement today claiming it was "misled" on the memos that supposedly showed that President Bush received special treatment while in the National Guard. Not yet clear, however, is whether CBS will actually apologize for insisting the memos were authentic, or precisely where the memos came from. MSNBC has a story on the retraction here.

As we mentioned earlier, bloggers were among those who first suggested that the provocative memos may be fake.
