Dan Rather Targets Bush– and Will Lose Again

Posted by Ryan on September 26, 2007

Former CBS News anchor Dan Rather (or Dan Rather-biased as he was called by conservatives throughout his CBS career) may potentially call both Bush 41 and Dubya as witnesses in Rather’s lawsuit against CBS.  Rather claims he was “squeezed out” of CBS following the blow-back from those false Mary Mapes-inspired National Guard memos leading up to the 2004 Election.  The memos were obviously not authentic, written some time later due to the specific Times New Roman font that was used on the memos not being in existence at the time they were alleged to have been typed.  CBS and Rather should have vetted them out much more thoroughly, not listened to Mary Mapes (whose Abu Graib story, according to Bill Sammon in Strategery, directly led to Zarqawi’s justification for beheading Nick Berg), and kept his opinions out of journalism in this case.  Four CBS higher-ups were let go as a result of this episode.  The documents were falsified, run anyway, and did permanent damage to the journalistic integrity of the CBS News organization.

Old news?

Nah, this is a fallen Mainstream Media Icon!  Rather wanted the memos to be real, almost willing them to be real before our very eyes and in the face of mounting evidence against their integrity.  It was both sad and comic.  He still wants them to be real, ready to hold back tears and pine over his failed search for the truth in interviews to this day.  He even thinks it might take down Bush, or drag him into the mud.  What’s Bush going to say that would change anything anyway?  He was there, did his hours, and missed his other appointments… because he already logged the hours and didn’t need to show up, which was an acceptable practice at the time.  It’s not that complicated.  Too much for Dan Rather, though, who’s apparently still paying the price for his liberal media bias.
