The truth? Less than one day later, Kincaid posted scanned images (.pdf) of the actual letter and the actual envelope in which it was received. Kincaid also posted a public statement denouncing Media Matters for their "false and defamatory charge."

Media Matters' belief that the letter was bogus appears to be based on an HTML/"electronic collage" (MMFA's words) of the letter that Kincaid had originally posted. The original contained Kincaid's home address, which he wished to redact. The webmaster "also converted the letter to HTML for easier reading" (Kincaid). Simple enough.

What's astonishing about their ugly attack, as Kincaid points out, is that Media Matters could have verified the authenticity of the letter with one simple phone call or correspondence. Instead, they simply went out and besmirched the guy!
