CBS News Continues To Irk Bloggers

After an independent panel published its findings on "Rathergate," the entire 234-page report was made available on the CBS News Web site and Kirkpatrick & Lockhart Nicholson Graham. the law firm hired to handle the inquiry. But hours later, they reposted it in a format that won't allow copying and pasting.

Bloggers howl that the move is meant to slow them down, since they'd have to retype anything they'd like to quote. A CBS News executive says it's simply to help prevent cyber-punks from altering it and then circulating a phony version of the report.

We love it either way because it keeps this hot-button media bias story in the headlines- and on TVGS.
