13. Rather's description of the headshot was a baldface lie

I can't access YouTube at the moment, but the original clip of Rather's report is on there.

As anyone who has seen the Zapruder film now knows, there's no way in hell that anyone would say that Kennedy's "went forward with considerable violence." Rather even leans forward to illustrate his lie.

I wonder if CBS ever includes that clip in any of its annual "remembrances" along with Cronkite choking up.
