    Despite no evidence to back up the allegations of attempted sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the liberal media were eager to make them stick. Comparisons to Justice Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill were wildly thrown around along with suggestions those accusations were true. They were also hopeful for a better result this time. Disgraced journalist Dan Rather admitted as much during a Monday appearance on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time. Disguised under the illusion of seeking “truth”, Rather admitted that the character assassination of Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork in the 1980’s was what happened to Justice...
  • Dan Rather: What Mueller Knows Will Make Cohen/Manafort "Pale By Comparison," "Stay Tuned"

    Dan Rather warned Wednesday night that if you think Tuesday was a shock with the Cohen guilty plea and Manafort's conviction, then "stay tuned." The former news anchor said other things Mueller is working on will "make yesterday pale by comparison." "Always keeping in mind that Mueller knows so much more than he has shown," Rather said in an interview with CNN's Don Lemon. "If you think [Cohen guilty plea, Manafort conviction] was a shock to our democratic system, just stay tuned. Because the other things Mueller is working on, and sooner or later we'll find out what they are,...

    Veteran journalist Dan Rather unleashed a blistering attack on President Donald Trump over Twitter early Saturday. The former CBS news anchor described the president’s tweeted attack on NBA star LeBron James and CNN host Don Lemon as “racist.” Trump posted the following late Friday:

    Veteran journalist Dan Rather said on Friday that President Trump’s false statements about and attacks on the media are "straight out of Orwell." The former longtime CBS News anchor told CNN’s Don Lemon that Trump is "authoritarian" and wants people to believe that "the one and only truth comes from him." [Snip] "As several people have said before me, he is not just attacking the truth, he wants to annihilate the truth," the former anchor added. "He wants to move us completely into the post-truth political era in which there’s no such thing as objective facts." Rather added that there...
  • Brett Kavanaugh Fought the Clinton/Castro Kidnapping of Elian Gonzalez back to Stalinist Cuba

    If we needed more proof (atop the media panic) that President Trump nominated the right SCOTUS candidate here it is: “Kavanaugh represented, on a pro bono basis, six-year-old Elian Gonzalez after the Immigration and Naturalization Service decided to return him to Cuba. Kavanaugh was among a series of lawyers who sought legal injunctions to stop INS…from sending the boy back to Cuba…” Whoops! I already hear the caterwauling about “separating immigrant children from their parents!” So let’s clear that up first: The genuine issue during the Elian Gonzalez circus had NOTHING to do with “parental rights,” as the Castro/Fake News...
  • Tin Foil Dan Rather's Theory: LeBron Went to Lakers to ‘Resist’ Trump

    Eighty-six-year-old liberal journalist Dan Rather seems to be getting more conspiratorial as he ages. The disgraced ex-CBS Evening News anchor on Monday speculated that the reason NBA star LeBron James left the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Los Angeles Lakers is to... fight Donald Trump. It’s true that James is liberal, but one respondent on Twitter perhaps summed up how odd Rather’s conspiracy theory is: “I dunno. I think he went there to play basketball for the Lakers.” Rather wasn’t done offering deep thoughts on Monday. Later in the day, he linked the summer heat to global warming.

    Old liberal media liars never fade away. They just rage, rage against the dying of their dinosaur industry's light. I'm looking at you, Dan Rather. After years of trashing alternative media, which exposed the veteran CBS News reporter's monumental Memogate fraud in 2004, Rather has joined the ranks of pajama-clad online broadcasters. The 86-year-old grandfather of fake news now uses Facebook, YouTube and Twitter to stoke the left's anti-Trump resistance -- all while clinging bitterly to the vestiges of his defunct "legendary" newsman persona. Consider Gunga Dan's comments on the House Intelligence Committee's release of the four-page Nunes memo alleging...

    Liberal reporters are scandalized by what they say is President Trump’s effort to “discredit” and “undermine” special counsel Robert Mueller, worried that it could presage an attempt to “remove Mueller, or end his investigation.” But when President Bill Clinton was being investigated by Ken Starr, journalists applauded Democratic and White House attacks on the independent counsel, and frequently joined in themselves. Today’s journalists seem appalled by attempts by the President and his allies that question Mueller’s credibility. Washington Post reporters Devlin Barrett and Sean Sullivan sounded the alarm in a front-page story on December 7: “Several law enforcement officials said...

    President Donald Trump’s behavior is out of the ordinary for a president, according to veteran news reporter Dan Rather Monday night on the TBS talk show "Conan." "A lot of young people, well, people of all ages don’t know, from one day to the next, what he’s going to do, what he’s going to say," host Conan O’Brien said. "It is important for us to remember this is not normal," Rather said. He noted that some presidents have not liked the press, but no president has behaved as Trump has toward the press. "We’ve never had one that steadily, out...

    We’re not excusing what Roy Moore is accused of—it’s ghastly. The man is accused of being inappropriate with multiple women; with another, a Trump voter, claiming he sexually assaulted her when she was 16 years old. The Republican Party had abandoned Moore; the optics of this is just too terrible to maintain support. It gets worse; Guy wrote today about how this man was banned from a Gadsden mall because he was trolling for high school dates and badgering teenage girls in the process. All of the accusers were teenagers at the time. Yet, one thing the Media Research Center...

    CNN is kicking off a new series to discuss “challenges facing the media,” and Brian Stelter is leading the way. The series, called “Free Press, What’s At Stake,” is meant to focus “on the challenges facing the media, under attack from critics, governments and changing technology.” It was kicked off by CNN’s Brian Stelter, who penned a column published Sunday titled, “Whose freedom is it?” Stelter wrote, “Press freedom is YOUR freedom. That’s the way I recommend thinking about ‘freedom of the press,'” adding, “it’s about MORE than just journalists. Turn it around. Recognize how protections for the press benefit...

    Dan Rather, who famously lost his job after he was caught spreading a made-up story about former President George W. Bush, is making the rounds again to discuss accuracy in media and the proper role of the press in our republic. Because this is real life and the producers of NBC's "Today" show lack any sense of self-awareness. "[A] recent poll that said nearly half of people think the media make up stories!" co-host Savannah Guthrie said as she kicked off the morning segment. Referring to a Politico survey released in October, she then turned to Rather and said,...

    When liberal journalists lecture us about how much more they revere quality reporting than we do,  just observe how they treat disgraced Dan Rather. On Friday night's All Things Considered, NPR anchor Ari Shapiro treated Rather as the closest thing we have to the Cronkite Myth, the national anchor of our patriotism. It's like he never used easily debunked forgeries of National Guard memos in an attempt to tar George W. Bush and elect John Kerry.Liberal journalists don't revere journalism as much as they revere the notion of helping elect Democrats. "Poor Dan. His heart was in the right place." Online, the headline...

    On Wednesday's edition of 'All In With Chris Hayes,' former CBS News anchor Dan Rather discusses the president's "fear" over the investigation into his alleged ties to Russia. DAN RATHER: This is unique like so much with President Trump's presidency. First of all, we have never had a first-term president get off to such a chaotic, unsteady start as this. The general pattern is the president is most popular when he first comes into office and then in the nature of things, his popularity declines. But what you're seeing with President Trump -- and I think it's very clear, Chris...

    Oooh! That must be President Donald Trump cowering with fear in the Oval Office corner worried about the imminent arrival of "Hurricane Vladimir." Such was the image projected by disgraced former CBS anchor Dan Rather yesterday on MSNBC's All In With Chris Hayes. Despite the fact that the Robert Mueller investigation seems to be focusing on rather peripheral figures without a hint of actual Russian collusion in sight, the "fake but accurate" Rather makes it sound as if "Hurricane Vladimir" might soon be arriving to sweep him from office. There might also be some sort of secret message from Rather...

    Thursday night CNN (the first Fake News outlet bestowed a “press” bureau by Cuba’s totalitarian regime) ran a “documentary” on Elian Gonzalez. You know that look on your pooch’s face when he promptly fetches a Frisbee, tail-waggingly returns it, and you’re massaging his face and neck while cooing: “GOOD-BOY!” Well, please don’t take this personally, amigos: but (very briefly) picture your joy and gratification in the pooch-scene on the faces of Castroite apparatchiks-- and your quivering, slobbering, tail-wagging pooch as CNN. CNN really outdid themselves this time. They satisfied every lust of their Cuban suitors, ignoring over 15 years of...

    Shifting to Tuesday, the man shown reverence by the likes of Don Lemon and Brian Stelter stated with glee: The Russia investigation has the potential to be the biggest scandal in American political history. But even if it ends up bringing down a presidency in spectacular fashion (and I think we are still a long, long, way from that happening), historians may look back at it as a blip compared to to a scandal that has the ability to damage our planet irrevocably - a process that is already well underway. Rather also brought up global warming following The New...

    RUSH: Speaking of relics, Dan Rather was in Manhattan on Monday night. He was wandering around. I think that he was looking for a National Guard office. I think he’s still following leads on the George W. Bush story. He ended up at a TV network, and they were so excited to see him at the TV network that they put him on the air. It was Friday night. They were ecstatic! Here’s Dan Rather wandering the streets of Manhattan looking for a National Guard office, and he wanders into a TV network/cable news network. They put him on the...
