Skip to comments.Rather Still Claiming Bush Natíl Guard Story Was True
Posted on 09/07/2010 6:20:09 AM PDT by Not gonna take it anymore
Some people just cant let go and Dan Rather is a case in point. Almost six years after he questioned George Bushs National Guard service Rather is still defending the report that led to his eventual departure from the network.
Give it a rest Dan.
Rather, of course, famously parted ways with CBS after a story about Former President George W. Bushs service in the National Guard was found to be based on faulty documents.
Rather sued CBS over his ouster, and most of the charges have since been dismissed.
Still, Rather continues to defend the report to Poynter:

The liar always lies to himself first!
Lighten up Dan. Have some more Jello.
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
They don’t call it bush-derangement-syndrome for nothing.
You’re right, he’s delusional——like my sister.
Have some more Jello.
Is Rather going to demand that that story be buried with him?
Does he know what frequency it is being broadcast on?
What's a "faulty" document? Do those cause your house to burst into flames? Do aircraft regularly fall from the sky from faulty documents?
These "faulty documents" sound pretty dangerous. Maybe there should be a government agency protecting us all from them.
I can’t decide what should be engraved on Rather’s tombstone:
“Fake but Accurate”
“What’s the frequency, Kenneth?”
“faulty document”....I think the word the author is searching for is fraudulent.
I’m sure Big Foot was his source. He ought to really lay off the mushrooms.
Nah..He's "sorry". As in a sorry excuse for a journalist, just like CBS is a sorry excuse for a news organization. Just like his predecessor, Wally Crankcase, was sorry.
All of them simply and nothing more than liberal propagandists.
Maybe not delusional. He may see a path to dollars here. How was his CBS lawsuit resolved?
A comment in the original article had a good point. Rather has an axe to grind with the Bush family when Bush Sr embarrassed him on national tv.
