Video: CBS airs mocking picture of Bush’s “Decision Points” « Hot Air

Well it looks like nothing has changed at CBS since they tried to rig a presidential election six years ago. The people there "making" the news still hate Bush and still love to make up lies. In this "news" story they created a fake cover of his book "Decision Points" with the fake line on the bottom of the book saying "How I managed to go eight years without making any good decisions".
It's actually amazing someone who knows how to use a DVR caught it, considering that no one under age 90 even watches CBS news these days.

If CBS is on, it's because the cat stepped on the remote.

I may be only 78 but I enjoy that CBS show every Sunday morning and failed to see that part the other day. At least CBS admitted what they did and they seldom try to apologize any way. It is sick that they took some cover from some left leaning blog and used it but somebody there knew he could bet by with doing it and their news people play that game all the time.

I never hesitate in the room my wife has the early morning CBS news?? show on because i know what that bunch has become.

How many book covers did you see that weren't the real "jacket" other than Bush's. I only saw that one.

Maybe someone can correct me...but isn't it CBS that has Dateline? You know, the one that rigged "tests" of GM pickups by replacing gas caps with ones that didn't fit, then igniting the fuel with model rocket engines to get them to burst into flame during their "news" broadcast? Aren't they the network that broadcast video of true machine guns (automatic firearms) while discussing the "assualt weapons bill" a few years ago...while forgetting to mention that machine guns weren't involved with the bill at all? They seem to be good at slanted, tabloid journalism, not news. Honesty is lacking.

The mainstream news broadcasts in general are pretty sad, but CBS really scrapes the bottom of the barrel, does anyone really watch them?
