Lessons from the CBS News failure: "But, adds Bob Steele, the Nelson Poynter Scholar for Journalism Values at The Poynter Institute, 'No matter what CBS News does, CBS, and to a great degree Dan Rather, will wear a Scarlet Letter.'"

Weapons of Mass Distruction?
Iraq Ties to al-Qaeda?
The Iraquis will welome us with roses?
Exporting jobs is good for this country?
Didn't use family influence to dodge the draft?
Tax cuts arren't targeted for the wealthiest 1% or the population?
No child left behind? (left underfunded)
We support our troops (while cutting their benefits)?

It seems Dan Rather is not the only one who should be wearing a Scarlet Letter ... There may be others who should be wearing several of them!
