ROSS: This seems remarkable to me that you would sit
here now and say you still find that story to be up to your standards.
MAPES: I'm perfectly willing to believe those documents

ROSS: But isn't it the other way around? Don't you have
to prove they're authentic?
MAPES: Well, I think that's what critics of the story

not been proved to be false yet.
ROSS: Have they proved to be authentic, though? Isn't
that really what journalists do?
MAPES: No, I don't think that's the standard.
