Congressional Hearings, Anyone?Hugh Hewitt calls for Congressional Hearings on this whole RatherGate affair. It might seem at first silly, when the damage is compaired with nipplegate, Rathergate is much more earthshattering the media apparently is attempting to over through Presidency through coverup lying and forgery.
Congress has held hearings on Howard Stern and "wardrobe malfunctions" at the Superbowl. It has held hearings on the networks' disastrous performance on election night 2000. Now a network is party to a fraud committed with the obvious intent of influencing an election. Where are the hearings? This is very serious stuff, and the rise of technology capable of influencing elections is a worry on many minds. (See John Fund's new book Stealing Elections.) It doesn't do much good for Congress to arrive to conduct an autopsy. It should act before the fraud spreads.
