Mapes Continues To Investigate Memogate; “I Don’t Think I Committed Bad Journalism”

mapesnov8.jpg“No one has proved that the documents were not authentic.”

“I don’t think I committed bad journalism. I really don’t.”

“I did not have it in for George Bush.”

Those are some of Mary Mapes‘ comments to ABC News chief investigative correspondent Brian Ross. In her first book interview, scheduled to air on Wednesday’s Good Morning America, Mapes “says she is continuing to investigate the source of the controversial documents whose authenticity was seriously questioned by the CBS panel.”

ABCNews.com has a recap of the interview.

> Also: Mapes says: “Les Moonves viewed the news department as being kind of an uppity group of folks who thought they worked in news rather than television news. And he wanted them to work in television.”
