Rather Wavers Over Authenticity of Guard Memos

Dan Rather has acknowledged the possibility that the Killian memos regarding Bush's National Guard service may not be authentic. To his credit, he's willing to shoulder the blame.

"If the documents are not what we were led to believe, I'd like to break that story," Rather said in an interview last night. "Any time I'm wrong, I want to be right out front and say, 'Folks, this is what went wrong and how it went wrong.' "

Rather's doubts stem from speaking with Marian Knox, Killian's former secretary. Knox said she didn't type the memos but they accurately reflect Killian's beliefs. CBS has the details of the tonight's interview here.

Will Rather survive the storm if he was wrong?
