The truth behind Dan Ratherís exit from CBS
NY Post ^ | July 20, 2015

Dan Rather is coming to your local movie theater. At least the story behind why he’s no longer at CBS is. In “Truth,” Robert Redford plays Rather. Cate Blanchett plays his CBS producer Mary Mapes.

In 2004, Rather reported that President George W. Bush’s powerful father arranged to keep his son in the National Guard to prevent serving in Vietnam. The report caused such hoo-hah that a treasured 24-year anchorman lost his job.

Dan: “I’ve read the script. It’s serious. People behind it do a good job. It’s two great actors. You couldn’t want for a better cast. Redford playing me makes me feel humble — which is not a word usually associated with anchors.

TRUTH is the title of the movie.

Ironic as it is entirely based on a lie Rather reported as truth and was debunked on these pages.

They still won't admit it's b.s.

George W. has become this generation's Nixon. He's the man blamed for everything for 20 years after he left office.

Brian Williams insists he wrote the screenplay for this movie.

If Robert Redford, the washed up former pretty bou cum tree hugger, is in this movie, it’s crap. I won’t go near it.

Dan Rather can’t handle the truth. He is living a lie and has been ever since he fell for this scam.

He just won’t stop until he has disgraced himself again and again and again and again.

Get a clue, Dan. No one cares about Bush anymore. They don’t even care about you anymore.

Anything to do with Dan Rather or Robert Redford is trash, a waste of money, and better time could be had taking your family to the local park....

Robert Redford is paying Dan Rather? How much did Rather pay for that?

Dan Rather approves of the movie, therefore it will be utter nonsense.

In order to keep him happy, it would either have to portray the fake memos as authentic or to portray a conspiracy in which the GOP plants fake memos to discredit him.

How appropriate.... Truth. The russian word= PRAVDA. And you know only true latter day bolsheviks could wrap themselves around a movie that re-writes and re-promotes the absolutely proven LIE that is Dan Rather.

You know, no one wants to touch the analysis by world experts on obamaumaos bc... that it simply can. not. be.

Because that too, would be the real truth.

“At least the story behind why he’s no longer at CBS is.”

Shouldn't this read, “At least A story behind why he’s no longer at CBS is.

I seem to recomemeber there were at least four or three tales of what "really" happened floating around.

...but Cate Blanchett is pretty.

If Rather is being played by Robert Redford, and Mary Mapes is being played by, um, anyone who doesn’t look like her, not to put too fine a point on it, then Buckhead will be played by Anthony Hopkins, if they can get his mask from the other studio.

Dan “Rather-Not-Tell-You-The-Truth” wants us to know the “truth”?

Just like Walter Cronkite told us the “truth” every night during the Vietnam War?

OK. I believe it. (No, I don’t)

BTW: W was in the AIR National Guard (Air Force). Not the National Guard (Army). These clowns can never even get that right.

I knew a lot of guys who served in the ANG, NG, USMCR, Coast Guard Reserves and other branches, who never served in RVN. They were all from blue-collar families and none of them had any political connections.

The notion that W could have only been in the ANG because his daddy was connected, doesn’t wash.

And they’ll blame W for this stinker of a movie being one of the biggest flops of all time.

Remember-I called it.

Why would someone make a movie about this? It just doesn’t seem that interesting.
