Skip to comments.Dan Rather, Still in Denial: I Was Asked to Leave CBS for Telling 'Uncomfortable Truth' About Bush

We're headed toward seven years since Dan Rather disgraced himself by running a story based on phony Texas Air National Guard documents to ruin George W. Bush on behalf of that "war hero" John Kerry. Rather has relentlessly presented himself as a pillar of truth and probity. Rather spoke on Tuesday night at the Newseum in Washington, DC to questions from Nick (Father of George) Clooney. Katy Adams and Nikki Schwab of the Washington Examiner's Yeas & Nays column reported Rather thinks he's the teller of uncomfortable truths, and the people objecting to phony documents are somehow the falsifiers and fantasists:
Clooney did take on the elephant in the room, though Rathers resignation from CBS News in 2005 for using bogus documents in a story about former President George W. Bushs National Guard service. We reported a story that was true, that was an uncomfortable truth for a lot of people, Rather said. As a result to that I was asked to leave the anchor chair, and eventually CBS News.

He’s loonier than Sheen.
No, Dan, you were fired because you were such a blatant stalking horse for the Democrat Party that no one could take your mouthings seriously. You should have been put in the stocks and subjected to the passing ridicule of your betters, but unfortunately we don’t do that any more.
I thought the trainwreck was over.
LOL! This would be good for the economy as conservatives everywhere would be selling their extra tomatoes for the exercise and entertainment value it would have created.
Stuck on stupid.
I didn’t know he’s still alive.....
(age 79 FWIW)
Dan Rather - Buckhead’s bitch.
Even in high school journalism we learned that if we had a story with the same genealogy of his information and sources, it wouldn't pass the smell test.
It was the "truth" as Rather wanted it.
Loonier than Sheen.
Now that is seriously loony.
Even for See-BS, Dan Rather was an embarrassment - which says a lot about both of them.
He has hot bangin sex with Gaddafi.
Rather stupidly revealed himself to be a ‘’modern day certifed snot-faced, queer-bait, liberal’’ and got caught, simple as that.
Obviously Dan Rather is a more dangerous drug than Charlie Sheen.
To which I would reply "...and it would have worked out really well for you too, if you hadn't used those OBVIOUSLY FAKED 'ORIGINAL' MEMOS to base your case on."
“I am not in denial!”
turns out to be non-authenticated copies that their own experts wouldn't sign off on, from ONE highly impeachable source.
And Gunga Dan makes himself out to be Mr. Truth teller?
How to be a hero for the Left: Get fired, indicted, investigated, deported, voted out of office, or pregnant. Ever notice how the lefties that get the biggest press are the ones no longer in office or on the news networks?
YOU BLEW YOUR ENTIRE REPUTATION REPORTING A STORY YOU KNEW WAS FALSE
AFTER YEARS OF BLATANT BIAS
YOU HAD TO KNOW BIASED FALSEHOODS ARE THE WORST SIN A NEWSCASTER CAN COMMIT, AND YET YOU COMPOUNDED THAT CRIME BY DOING IT TO TRY TO THROW AN ELECTION
BUH-BYE GUNGA DAN- YOU’RE A LIAR~!!!!!!!!
