philosopher named chesterton who said journalists are conjurers talking down to the citizenry, journalists distort and falsify and i think cbs shamelessly conjured up this narrative that was harmful to the full understanding of this particular story and that is one of the reasons media credibility is declining across the nation. lawrence: this is the statement they released, the idea this was untrue, counter to his statement we spoke also on the record with palm beach county mayor david koerner for 50 years, the facts reported by 60 minutes have often stirred the bait. >> i kind of get that. they were exposed.
