Get Real…Dan Knew!

Written by JB Williams


Can America recognize the reality check? Can the liberal main-stream media muster the moral courage to face the music, now that the fat lady is tuning up?

I didn’t forge any documents or interview any bogus overzealous partisan political hacks to arrive at the grand conclusion that Dan must have known what he was engaging in. I didn’t need to.

We’re not talking about some freshman crack reporter for the Podunk High School Gazette here; we’re talking about Dan Rather….THE Dan Rather!

Though it took Dan Rather and CBS about 10 days to finally come forward with the breaking news that their story on Bush’s Guard service was bogus, backed only by forged documents and partisan hate-mongering, a few hundred part-time internet sleuths figured it out in about 10 minutes. How is this possible?

It’s only possible one of two ways.

Either Dan has completely lost his nose for news, or, he has relinquished any remaining sense of personal integrity. Take your pick…

Either way, the only thing that can salvage Dan’s credibility now is a well worded resignation from his post as head of the CBS news desk, because either way, he can never be trusted to tell the news in a credible fashion again.

This wasn’t getting the background on a cat stuck in a tree story wrong. This was a mean spirited (and fraudulent mind you) attempt to bring down the sitting President of the United States of America, using overly obvious fake information from obviously questionable sources.

This changes everything! No matter ones politics, America can not survive wholesale politicking from the nations news desks, and truth in reporting is not a partisan issue, is it?

I know what you’re thinking, they all do it. Yes they do, but Dan got caught in the worst possible way, with his hand in the cookie jar so to speak. If we don’t do something about it right now, is there any hope that the rest of the news media will ever get it right?

Is it possible that Dan, his crack seasoned investigative staff, his producers and CBS executives were all “misled” by one crackpot Democrat with an obvious ax to grind? You tell me…

Dan and his staff wasted no time ruling more than 250 decorated Vietnam Vets “liars” and “right wing conspirators”, and now we know they got that wrong too.

Did Dan get it wrong? BIG TIME! Now America, the news industry, CBS and Dan must get it right. Dan needs to resign, anyone involved at CBS must be fired, and the Kerry camp (where the fraud originated), needs to be charged with campaign fraud…

I would willingly die for my country at a moment's notice and on the command of my president," says Rather."

"Dan Rather ought to Resign!!" - Al Gore

And if you believe he said that, I've got a 60 minute program for you to watch.

Walter Kronkite's successor, MujahaDan Blather, is as wrong as Robert Macnamara, Joe Wilson, Neville Chamberlain, Frank Church, Jimmy Carter, and Lyndon Baines Johnson was.

Dear Impartial Dan,
It looks like Bush's intelligence on WMDs was better than yours on W's Memoranda of Delinquency.

Did Dan get it wrong? As you say, Big Time.
But I don't think he went public with information that he knew was bogus.
What I think is that at 71, Dan's building up some plaque in his brain. And since he and -BS have such an antipathy towards Bush; they were not all that interested in looking a gift horse in the mouth.
They thought they had the liberal counter attack to the Swift Boat Vets...ooops...thing is the Swift Boat Vets got facts; -BS got squat.
