    It was a great story. A true story. The kind of story any news producer would love to report, nail down, and get on the air. And that's just what Mary Mapes and her producing and reporting team did in September 2004 when Dan Rather anchored their report on President George W. Bush's dereliction of his National Guard duty for CBS News.

    Theodore says: "Neither true nor dutiful"
    "A story of faulty, biased reporting"
    Overall

    Author Mapes proves what we already know: It is really easy to lead someone in a direction they want to go. Even now, Mapes is in total denial over how the story played out, with her own carcass rotating slowly over the flames instead of her intended victim. This story is laced with a 'poor me', 'they are out to get me' attitude, which soon wears thin. The rest of the world has long since moved on, it is past time that Mary did so as well.
