Dan Rather should be proud of the journalistic efforts made in this story, which followed the unfolding heartache of a little girl whose daddy was going off to Iraq. In a brilliant scheme, a woman and newspaper editor (he denies it) concocted the story and recruited the "actors" by making them believe they were playing roles in a movie. Although the "scenes" of the movie had no cameras, the actors nonetheless believed that they were playing a role, and dutifully posed as the necessary parties for the story.

The "legitimate" media are calling this a hoax. But it is no more of a hoax than the Bill Burkett story, which so many of them wanted to believe, despite the evidence. If they repeat themselves often enough, maybe they'll believe this story too.
