One of our local news stations, the local CBS affiliate, is known for it's investigative journalism and has won many awards for it. So they decided to check out everyone's favorite traitor and his claims, and what they found was interesting... It seems that all of his claims are apparently lies. He claims that his family has been using the land since the 1870s, from which his erroneous claims derive. His family actually bought the ranch in 1948, provably, and didn't get cattle until the 1950s. And they bought the water rights to their own property but no grazing rights to the Federal land. Imagine that. And kudos to channel 8, KLAS tv, for doing some good journalism. So good to see these days. I wonder if this will finally make the derps squatting in my state fantasizing about violence finally slink homeward?
Oh, and here's the link to the report.
