DAN'S RATHER SHAMELESS WAYS
New York Post ^ | 8/15/08

Posted on 08/15/2009 2:18:47 PM PDT by nickcarraway

DAN Rather has some nerve. Although he helped force Walter Cronkite out of the CBS anchor chair in 1981, and then kept the popular newsman off the air to avoid unfavorable comparisons, he had the chutzpah to attend Cronkite's funeral. And Rather, who's suing CBS for fraud and defamation, is unafraid to show his face in social circles.

CBS would have gained some shred of credibility if they had FIRED HIS ASS for knowingly reporting a falsified story.

They let him weasly his way into claiming he was going to retire some months in the future.

He should have been FIRED WITH MARY MAPES

Liberals have a completely different mind.

See John Edwards.

He didn’t force Cronkite out. Old Walter said he wanted to go out on top.

And please, Walter wasn’t a hero, just a guy who knew he could still suck the teats of CBS fora few more decades while he helped rewrite his own legacy.

Please, no “poor Walter” stories.

Rather and Olbermann together could only get two viewers, Olbermann mom, and Rathers boyfriend.

Every time I see ole Dan mentioned, I get a chuckle remembering how in the dark of night I put a Bush-Chaney for president sign the front yard of the home he owns near me.

Dan Rather suing ANYONE for fraud is laughable.

he has never had any class. Remember how he first got his start at that political convention? I remember him really putting on a show of how he was mistreated along with his camera...... slimy little weasel..

That’s one thing common with idiots like Rather. They always end up the only one that doesn’t know they’re an idiot

Dan Rather has a dark soul.

It’s part of what makes him such a good Liberal.

I have no use for either of them, let alone the current holder of the anchor seat. Having said that, though, I imagine when ol’ Walter got a big kick out of announcing “the CBS Evening News, with Katie Couric.”

Rather is a flaming, liberal, arrogant asshole.

Is anyone surprised?

Kind of juvenile.

But still pretty funny.

Certainly it was juvenile—why do you think I had so much fun doing it! LOL!

It’s hard to get too worked up with the shamelessness of one radical, liberal news anchor. Rather is like liberals everywhere. He is shameless because he can never be embarrassed. Such things as shame require a conscience.
