Dan Rather still doesn't get it.
Cavuto on Fox | 1OCT'09 | mapmaker77

Posted on 10/01/2009 2:10:11 PM PDT by mapmaker77

Soooo, Dan the man stands behind his Bush hit piece in '04. O.K. The story was well researched, it was not biased, it was not timed politically and it just happened to break within a week of a closely contested presidential election. OKAY. And besides, the source and the timing were all dictated from higher ups at CBS. YEA, RIGHT. Dan, Why don't you quietly go home and await the NY appeals court ruling on your 70 million dollar lawsuit against your former employer. You are so past your "Use By Date".

P.S. I'd like to start a petition to send Shep back to Oxford, and have more Cavuto. Any thoughts?

Was there ever prosecution of the man who created the forged document “written” and “signed” by a member of the US military?

I think his lawsuit was already dismissed by the court, maybe last week or so. On all counts.

He may be a deluded fool but he has more “courage” than Obozo. After all, Obozo doesn’t have the manhood to appear on FOX.

I listened to the interview on the radio and was laughing at Rather. He still says the story about Pres. Bush was true and, as I heard it, “...no one has proven the documents were false...”. He needs to get a grip and just head to pasture.

FOX is his last gasp for air. He’s 10 feet under water sucking air thru a 10’ 2” straw..........it’s time for this self absorbed, biased liberal to drown for good.

Here's the real story.

Dan Rather never did “get it.” Where’s the “news” here?

I actually felt sad and a little embarrassed for Rather. He really doesn’t get it.

I’ll bet he still doesn’t know what a proportional font is.

Anybody here have a link to the original FR thread from the night Rathergate began? Had a crash last week and lost all my bookmarks.

Dan Rather proves that the “reporter/journalists” who have been paraded in front of the public since the 1950’s - were nothing more than propaganda puppets.

We have been duped for decades. So duped, in fact, that even the dumbest dupe of all, Dan Rather - still believes his own lying propaganda.

It is more than that.

Rathergate was a boldfaced attempt by SeeBS senior leadership to take out a sitting President. A major news organization decided it didn't like the way the polls were going against their guy and decided to change the course of history. It was the closest our country came to a coup.

I wonder what would have happened if the story broke after Lurch was elected? Where and how would the outrage vent?

It is chilling to think that SeeBS would have gotten away with it just a decade or two ago.

Thank you! It’s very pleasant to go back and read through the “classic” threads on occasion, and losing all my bookmarks was seriously aggravating. Appreciate the help.
