Ratherbiased.com reminds us that this isn’t the first time 60 Minutes has relied upon fake memos:

Lesley Stahl apologized for it back then, but currently the network is still holding out on apologizing for memos Dan Rather used as proof that George W. Bush was a misfit in the National Guard. The memo cited in 1997 was supposedly written by Rudy Camacho, a customs official whom CBS suggested was linked to a drug cartel. The memos today are supposedly written by Jerry Killian, a National Guard officer whom CBS claims gave preferential treatment to George W. Bush.
