A Rather Controversial Ending (Dan Rather blaming the conspiratorial Right?)

Dan Rather’s $70 million lawsuit alleges there was more to his CBS departure than meets the eye. But former colleagues aren’t convinced.

In parts, it reads like a political thriller, with a cast of “right-wing” hit men out to force a powerful journalist to heel. Or a tale of corporate deceit, in which Machiavellian suits sacrifice their own to cozy up to the president of the United States. Or a behind-the-scenes saga of a network news division assembling a story that could help unseat an incumbent president at the polls.

Sort of, what i believe is that the DNC and the media, at least what we call the msm, are in fact one and the same. There is absolutely no critical analysis of any Democrat or DNC issue, no serious stories or investigations of Dem's, absolutely no chance a "Watergate" would be pursued by ABC, NBC, CBS, WaPO, NYT, LaT,MSNBC, CNN. On the flip side we have Tim Russert with his "it was like Christmas" comment about the Scooter Libby indictment and a never ending pursuit of Watergate like stories among Republicans. This speaks volumes about the "real" Truth.

It doesnt pass the sniff test!

LOl, I know. Didn't even try to hide it. Like it was just part of the job to contact the friendlies. But it makes my point, not a single serious story or investigation or damaging word in the msm. Yes I know there was some pretend outrage, that was fake but real also.

Great post.
BTW, you are not a Marine until you COMPLETE recruit training.
Rather was NEVER a Marine.

Yes, the media wanted to take out RN. But, the Watergate burglary was at least a fact.

Conversely, the Texas ANG letter was pure fabrication. I wonder what the nation’s reaction would have been had the TANG letter been widely accepted, his poll numbers then tanked, he loses, Kerry wins and then a few months into 2005 it comes out that the letter was fantasy of CBS News.

Our country was fortunate that CBS was so incompetent in their pathological need to destroy Republicans.

Dan, you’d have been much better off if you had just retired quietly. As long as this lawsuit continues, people will be reminded every day what a loon you really are.
