Media Bias - 5th Update on the CBS Hoax

Is this the Last Nail in the Coffin of CBS? Powerline links to a story in the Dallas Morning News (full story here - registration required) (via Hugh Hewitt) quoting Lt. Colonel Killian's secretary as saying “These are not real,”.

It's damning, but so is much of what has come out about these documents and CBS still stands by them. Until the true source of these forgeries breaks down and starts screaming "It was me! I did it! I typed these up last week!" I think CBS rides it out.

Update 10:00 PM

Wizbang! agrees with Powerline that this should end the debate on authenticity, but I'm still not convinced. The MSM always has the fallback position that the memos, even if not authentic, expressed Killian's true feelings.
