Dan (Rather) Wants Second Go At Bush! (Still Insists Memogate Story Is True!)
New Yoork Post ^ | Don Kaplan

Posted on 09/28/2005 5:59:23 AM PDT by MindBender26

September 28, 2005 -- DAN Rather wants to reopen the investigation into President Bush and the National Guard story that resulted in the Memogate scandal and led to his early departure from the anchor desk. But his bosses at CBS have forbidden him to go back at it, he said.

"CBS News doesn't want me to do that story," Rather said. "They wouldn't let me do that story,"

Rather continues to insist that the story was correct and suggested in the interview that he and the network may have been set up by some outsider.

"There are some strange, and to me, still mysterious things," he said. "Certainly unexplained things that happened about how it got attacked and why, even before the program was over," Rather said.

The report, delivered by Rather last September, was discredited two weeks later after drawing fire, first from politically conservative Web logs and later from mainstream media.

"I believed in the story," Rather said. "The facts of the story were correct.

"One supporting pillar of the story, albeit an important one, one supporting pillar was brought into question," he said. "To this day, no one has proven whether it was what it purported to be or not."

The man is truly now in the Art Bell league.

Hey, Dan... did anyone prove to you that the Earth is flat?

And if he doesn't know why and how FReepers knew story was BS within 5 minutes of his pontificating broadcast, then he has no idea of the power of FR, the Internet.... or the Truth.

I guess he really wants the new media to drive the stake through his heart, not just wound him.

If it's true, then why won't Dan tell us who his source is? To this day, he will not tell us where he got the fake documents.

The poor man clearly has real emotional/psychological problems. I wonder, is he destined to "ride off into the sunset" chasing this story.

HEY DAN! LET IT GO! IT AIN'T REAL! ACCEPT IT AND MOVE ON!

This folks........

Shows the power of liberal indoctrination.

This guy would walk off the cliff thinking his upside down view of things is correct.

How dare the masses question the elites is Rather's thinly veiled mantra.

The thing that's so unbelievable is that fifteen years ago, he'd have simply have gotten away with his BS and John the F'ing gigolo Kerry would be president of the United States, simple as that.

Dan is getting exceptionally contorted on this one. The story is true, but it was a set up to embarrass CBS with a bad story. And the set up was done through Burkett, who has been a Bush hater for decades and insisted he was telling the truth? Wow, Karl Rove is powerful. He even put an idiot like Dan Rather in charge of the story. That was brilliant.

Whatever happened to Dan's Rasputin, Mary Mapes? I'm sure she landed a cushy job with some lefty media outlet.

Dan is right, the memogate story is true. What Dan doesn't know is that the true part of the memogate story is about MSM bias, not W's ANG service.

"Certainly unexplained things that happened about how it got attacked and why, even before the program was over," Rather said."

I just read a post explaaining it. Seems that if you are not a registered user, or not logged in, the times are displayed in Pacific Time. Buckhead's post was at about 11:59 Eastern time, but to those not logged it, it would appear at 8:59 Pacific Time. Mapes & Co looked at the time, but ignore time zone.

I'm sure if he tunes into the correct frequency, he'll receive some important information to prove his story.
