CBS’ Norah O’Donnell: Dan Rather Was One of ‘The Very Best Journalists in American History’
bigjournalism.com ^ | Aug. 28, 2011 | Warner Todd Huston

Posted on 08/28/2011 9:24:14 AM PDT by PROCON

The latest issue of Capitol File magazine has a glowing feature on CBS News Chief White House Correspondent Norah O’Donnell. In it she claims that past journalists that have filled the role of chief White House correspondent for a major network have been “legendary” and “the very best” in the field. Of this “very best” she laughably elevates discredited CBS News anchor Dan Rather into that pantheon.

Capitol File is a magazine that focuses on D.C. elites, the movers and shakers, the bight lights in the City On The Hill. In it’s pages you will see all the beautiful people of Washington D.C. It is, we are told, “a place for power and politics, CAPITOL FILE chronicles and celebrates the most influential players, cultural connoisseurs, fashion sophisticates, and philanthropic leaders in the Washington, DC metropolitan region.”

Yeah...I remember seeing him on TV reporting from the bush....I was nearing 18 and graduating from HS. Couldn’t afford college, couldn’t get a job except for slinging fries....all because of draft status - inevitable. Yeah....I remember him Nora. The pitiful thing is that you probably are only old enough to remember his lies and fabrication and attacks on Bush...and you think he was one of the very best.....Now I guess I’ll have to remember you....

He WAS! He’s right up there with Bagdad Bob! He was one of the best at spreading commie lib propaganda and bull**** until all of his lying to “the little people” finally caught up with him.

Norah has always been a brainwashed Marxist bimbo. She’s just singing the praises of her role model.

Rather Biased is a liberal. That’s a prerequisite for being a “great journalist” in the eyes of the lamestream media.

I have an exercise for any journo who supports Rather.

You are a journalism professor or teacher. Assignment you gave your students was for an original news story. One brings you their story that's too good to be true from sources with an agenda with supporting documents from an anonymous source that can't be verified. What grade do you give them?

I forgot to add that the student burned all “original” documents to protect their source.

The mark of a truly great journalist is being better at faking documents than the second-stringers Obama had to rely on

She’s a pretty good example of just how low the standards of “journalism” really are.

Its pretty funny - that she is so delusional - that she thinks anyone gives a dog fart what she has to say about anything.

Norah that is subjective, but I can assure that there were a lot better journalists than Dan Rather.

This “Cute” one was hired because she was a woman looks are only window dressing to the fact affirmative action demanded we hire blacks and women.

"Dan Rather Was One of ‘The Very Best Journalists in American History"

This is arguably true meaning they all suck.

Yes he was. Right after Walter Duranty, Jayson Blair, Mike Barnicle, Janet Cook, and David Halevi.
