Skip to comments.Dan Rather Backs 'Outstanding' NYT Journos on McCain Hit Piece
Posted on 02/25/2008 3:21:18 PM PST by RatherBiased.com
If you're the New York Times's Jim Rutenberg or Bill Keller the last person you probably want in your corner is Dan "National Guard Forgery Story" Rather. Yet on the syndicated "Chris Matthews Show," Rather jumped to their defense, on last week's McCain hit piece, by declaring them "outstanding journalists."
Now Rather did hedge a bit saying if the story wasn't true they could be "in a heap of trouble," but he concluded, that in the end, their reporting should be trusted because they were: "Very responsible journalists."

I saw him drool out this opinion. Senile old liar.
This is from the onion, right?
I swear I thought this was Scrappleface when I saw the headline.
As compared to him? ROTFLOL!!!
Rather's doing standup? LOL
Rather appears on Mathews? How low can your career go?
The word rather should take on a historic verb meaning such as fisk or bork did. It would mean to wish for something to be believed even though you know its a lie. And it fits so well. I’d “rather” that the facts coming out of iraq supported my belief that things weren’t going so well.
Rather’s and NYT’s hit pieces are right up there with the lying hit pieces leveled against Governor Mike Huckabee in the state of Arkansas.
Has Dan taken to using heroin and LSD again?
“I had someone at the Houston police station shoot me with heroin so I could do a story about it. The experience was a special kind of hell. I came out understanding full well how one could be addicted to ‘smack,’ and quickly.”
“I’ve tried everything. I can say to you with confidence, I know a fair amount about LSD. I’ve never been a social user of any of these things, but my curiosity has carried me into a lot of interesting areas.”
HAHAHAHA! This isn’t a spoof but sometimes reality spoofs itself.
1) a jerk;
2) a rabid Democrat.
RATHER IS ALSO :
Peeved that cleaver people from this web site, Retired His lying ass.
He hates Conservative’s , But has a special hate for Conservative Republicans.
Did Rather whip out the document yet? The document that shows McCain being AWOL from the Hanoi Hilton?
