Chuck Philips defends his story

Chuck Philips, the Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist who used fake FBI documents to suggest that Sean "Diddy" Combs ordered the 1994 shooting of Tupac Shakur at a New York recording studio, defended his article in an Online chat one day after the story was published online.

In March 18 chat, Philips says: "I am very confident that I have reported accurately what my sources said. And I feel confident that they know what happened. The documents supported what I learned. I believe what I wrote can withstand any legal challenge."

Ten days later an online investigative magazine, The Smoking Gun, proved that the FBI documents used in Philips' story were fabricated.

Here's a link to Philips' online chat:
