From a reader:
Remember the outrage when it was discovered that an attorney for the Bush campaign had given legal advice to the Swift Boat Vets? Collusion! Scandal! Now CBS thinks it the most natural thing in the world for the producer of a hit piece on Bush to pick up the phone for a little chat about upcoming stories, the weather, a source of some serious dirt on GWB, just the normal stuff. Perfectly ethical. Perfectly normal.
