Skip to comments.The man behind Rathergate
Posted on 03/14/2005 7:41:30 AM PST by KeyesPlease
Before Dan Rather signed off March 9 after 24 years as a news anchor for CBS, conservative "netizens" already were cheering the man they believe led to the tidal wave of criticism that forced Rather to leave his post a year early: Atlanta attorney Harry W. MacDougald.
MacDougald, 46, who has been with Atlanta's Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice PLLC since 2002, was the blogger "Buckhead" who first started a cascade of criticism about a report Rather aired Sept. 8 on CBS's "60 Minutes II" about President George W. Bush's Air National Guard service.

???...they still don't know the difference.
FR is the blog-center of the universe.
MSNBC demonstrates the MSM is populated by uneducated buffoon with no inteligence. Those people have college degrees? Seriously it is beccoming more and more apparent the only difference between a four year degree and a diploma mill degree is the amount of inebreation during the obtaining.
MSNBC can not tell the diffence between a blog and a forum or WORSE they think the public is too stupid to get it. PERHAPS MSNBC is just to lazy to make the distiction.
Either way it only demonstrates in an obvious way that the MSM is incompetent when it comes to dispensing information.
These media nitwits still can't figure out the difference between a blog and a web forum.
Of course, confusing "journalists" about this is also part of the VRWC.
I still think Dan Rather is great American," Smith added. Some thought John Wilkes Booth a great American, also.
Correct that.......FREE REPUBLIC IS THE CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE.
Hey Buckhead, T minus 15 minutes and counting...
The people who populate the MSM are products of the Schools of Journalism at the various colleges and universities. These schools are teaching a trade, they are not really educating them. People who have a BS or BA with a diverse mixture of English, Science, History, Art, and Music can outhink these pinheads any day of the week. A good analogy is the results of having our children taught by people with degrees in education.
I stand corrected.
Dan Rather is a vile creature and he knows it .
In other words, a true American.
No kidding! It's like calling MSNBC a newspapper, or a sitcom or something.
But hey, look at it this way, they still have no clue or understanding of this Internet thingy, how it works, how it is structured, etc. As long as they are that clueless, the web forums like FR, and individual BLOGS will continue to run circles around the fools.
Actually I think it goes back to the MSM Mediots 1970's thinking that the news is what they say it is. The news is what they say it is.
FR is a blog because they don't have the desire or capacity to get it.
Remeber these are reporters who say "democratic" party instead of democrat party as an intentional means of propaganda.
Blog can be insulte as a single kook writing. A forum is We The People writing.
I think they do understand how it works. I am CERTAIN they have checked out running contemporaneous threads which consistently rip them appart for slopy and illogical writing.
"It's like calling MSNBC a newspapper, or a sitcom or something."
I can relate to MSNBC as a sitom.
I wouldn't spend too much time educating the MSM of this. The best education you can get is the one from the school of hard knocks. At this point in time most "journalist" are in line to register for preschool. They have a long way to go. :-)
sometimes the ratings of MSNBC are so low they are just a space keeper channel.
