Mapes Responds

If you want a first peek at fired "60 Minutes II" producer Mary Mapes's version of what happened after last September's ill-fated report on George Bush's service record, here's an excerpt of her upcoming book in Vanity Fair that was posted on the Poynter site.

Two of the more memorable passages: "I must answer the bloggers, the babblers and blabbers, and the true believers who have called me everything from a 'feminazi' to an 'elitist' liberal to an 'idiot.'"

And "I didn't know that the attack on our story was going to be as effective as a brilliantly run national political campaign, because that is what it was: a political campaign. I didn't know that we were being bombarded by an army of Bush backers with different divisions, different weapons, and different techniques, but always the same agenda: Kill the messenger."
