Remember our effort, yea many years ago, "Unvalentine Dan Rather"? Thousands of "roses are red, violets are blue" postcards, pointing out his bias, arrived at his place of work, coordinated by the FreeRepublic "Media Bias Group" of the time.

Dan Rather hasn’t noticed that the media doesn’t have the power to effectively shame anyone.

Dan Rather...wasn’t he that dry, boring newsblatherer who made up some fake news on George W. Bush with Mary Mapes, and when caught tried to pin it on some fictional person called Lucy Ramirez?

Him? I thought he died ten years ago. From shame.

Every Veteran and every one who knows a veteran should be reminded of Dan Rather's "award winning" CBS documentary THE WALL WITHIN in which he wrote the script, coached and paid fake Vietnam vets to lie about committing atrocities in Vietnam.

Many years ago, the FR “Media Bias Group” launched an “unvalentine” effort against Rather, sending thousands of postcards to his office based on “Roses are red, Violets are blue”.... and very creative endings slamming his bias. Much fun, point made. And then his bogus reporting on George W. Bush... how dare he even stick his head out!

He’s the one who first tried to explain how Kennedy was shot from the front in the throat, because he was turning around backwards to wave at the crowd.

Then the story changed...

Rather challenged the media to hold Trump accountable for his words, urging them to do more to try to shame his supporters.

Get ready for incoming, Dan. No one had Twitter when you caused your last s***storm.
