Posted on 11/06/2017 10:33:52 AM PST by ForYourChildren
In a staggering example of the press lacking any self-awareness, on Monday’s NBC Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie fretted over “a recent poll that said nearly half of people think the media make up stories” and unbelievably turned to disgraced former CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather to suggest ways in which the news media could “enhance its own credibility.”
Citing a Politico poll from October that found 46 percent of voters “believe the news media fabricate news stories about President Donald Trump and his administration,” Guthrie asked Rather: “The media itself is under fire. And what do you think the media needs to do better to enhance its own credibility? And what do people need to understand about the value of the press?”
The ex-network anchor, who was fired for using fraudulent documents to smear former President George W. Bush in a series of reports ahead of the 2004 election, was shameless as he replied to Guthrie’s softball: “Well, first, those of us who are in the media....we need to do a better job, we need to do our job. Our job is to bear witness, to be honest brokers of information. To be as accurate and fair as we possibly can.”
He then went on the attack against the country’s most vocal media critic:

Because they give distorted stories and also spew male bovine fecal matter from anonymous sources.
Actually, dishonesty in the media is one of the things that surprised me the most, the president told radio host Chris Plante. I thought after I won, the media would become much more stable and much more honest. Theyve gone crazy. CNN is a joke. NBC is a total joke. You watch what they report, it bears no relationship to what Im doing. But the media is absolutely dishonest and frankly, Ive never seen anything quite like it.
You can’t make this Sh*t up.
Remember when Dan Rather followed and defended a forgery?
Ah, the MSM moron’s favorite pastime: having an on-the-air chat with another MSM moron about the MSM and why ordinary people don’t get how wonderful it is.
That’s like asking Hilliary why people like her.............
Here is your copy of the recent “National Tracking Poll,” October 12-16, 2017.
Hey Dan....How the font are you?
Nbc putting explosive devices on gas tanks to show the risks of side impact accidents was fake news.
Nbc you are fake news.
Dan Ratherbiased’s hoaxed documents near the end of the 2004 election were likewise fake news.
Seriously... they asked Mr. Superscript RATHER his opinion on on made-up stories? Too, too funny.
Here is your copy with “Crosstabulation Results.”
“Morning Consult; National Tracking Poll #171006; October 12-16, 2017; Crosstabulation Results”
Dan Rather is the father of fake news. Did he know what he just said, or does he believe his own bovine scatology? This may be the closest thing to an apology we’ll ever see from this pea-brain.
Brian Williams must have been on assignment. On Mars.
Uh, because they call what they publish “stories”?
Yes, if the Media Research Center were around back in the day, likely Richard Nixon and Spiro Agnew would have fully completed their terms as President and Vice-President respectively.
Pretty in the face bold to ask a pioneer and the Godfather of fake news why people think the media is pushing a barely hidden agenda and fake news stories on the American public
One thing for certain is that Rather is a subject matter expert and past master on fake news. It’s not a surprise his answer on fake news was a fake reply
