Mapes: I Was Framed- By Bloggers!

Mary Mapes, the producer at the center of last year's CBS News Memogate scandal, claims she was derailed by a vast right-wing conspiracy.


She's crying that she was the victim of a group of conservative bloggers "with a harsh political bent." who pounced on CBS News after it aired the now-infamous Texas Air National Guard story on 60 Minutes 2.

"They were hard-core, politically angry, hyperconservative sites loaded with vitriol about Dan Rather and CBS," she frets. Maybe. But sweetie- you based a story on documents that weren't real. Isn't that harsh too? Take some responsibility, fer chrissakes.

Of course, she's shilling her new book, which certainly will be a hot seller amongst outraged lefties, curious righties, and conspiracy theorists everywhere.
