Drunkablog gets dread "vote of confidence" from self

I'm still quite confident that the statement posted on Try-Works yesterday and purported to be Ward Churchill's response to CU Interim Chancellor Phil DiStefano is authentic. But neither the Post nor the News has updated the story, and neither has said where they got the statement, which would seem to indicate that they got it from Try-Works and ran with it without further confirmation.

Just like the Drunkablog did.

Oh, and it's still not up on CU's website, though this might mean only that Churchill's decided not to communicate directly with the hegemonate anymore.

Evidence? We don't need no stinkin' etc.

But I'll give it a shot. 1. Churchill gave his June 13 statement to Try-Works first too. 2. That little touch of trying to turn the charges around on the committee is pure Churchill. 3. And what would be achieved by a fake statement anyway? If it ain't Churchill it might as well be.

Update: Putting up rather than shutting up: If I'm wrong I'll eat my magic blogger's hat.
