This link takes you to a good rundown of how this whole thing unfolded, including the response from Bush's new mouthpiece, Dana Perino. (It always makes me a little sad when I see a woman on this bandwagon. I thought we were smarter than this.)
I think it's kind of funny that the party that relies on a fake news channel to guide their minions, is reaping the fruits of their labors as their own agency tries to pass off fake information...and got caught.
