    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,...

    Disgraced former CBS News anchor Dan Rather has been making his media rounds to promote his new book, entitled What Unites Us. Tuesday morning he appeared on Morning Joe, to discuss the NFL protests, the lack of “civility” in our country, and what patriotism means to him, to an enraptured MSNBC panel. Despite Rather’s own partisan pontificating on Facebook over the "con man" "liar" Trump, the liberal hosts let Rather drone on and on about the “lack of civility” the country is currently facing, and argue his support for the”patriotic” NFL protests, which he claimed “history” will “justify” like they...
  • NBC's Brian Williams Wins Dan Rather Memorial Award for Stupidest Analysis

    CNS News ^ | September 22, 2017
    NBC's Brian Williams won the Dan Rather Memorial Award for the Stupidest Analysis at the Media Research Center's 30th Anniversary Gala last night in Washington, D.C. The audience awarded Williams with the prize for comments he made on MSNBC on Nov. 26, 2016, the night that Cuba's Communist dictator, Fidel Castro, died. Speaking of that nation impoverished by socialism, Williams said that people there would rather have "donkey carts" than cars and trucks as a mode of transportation. [Snip] Rep. Mark Meadows (R.-N.C.) accepted the award, saying: "Brian Williams would have been here but he is flying in a...

    Future generations may mark today as one of the truly dark days in American history, a history that may soon take an even more ominous turn. President Trump’s sudden firing of FBI Director James Comey is a matter that should deeply concern every American, regardless of party, partisan politics or ideological leanings. The independence of our law enforcement is at the bedrock of our democracy. That independence, already grievously shaken under the brief tenure of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, is now shattered by uncertainty. The firing of an FBI Director is always a very serious matter in normal times. But...

    "You can't make this stuff up. https://t.co/eWgXjlCCiU" — Mark Teister (@MTeister) April 26, 2017 The election of Donald Trump as president created an “all hands on deck” situation in the mainstream media, and fortunately many journos who focus on the White House are well rested after a hiatus of several years.

    Dan Rather says the failure of the GOP healthcare bill to pass is the most "staggering loss" he's ever seen so early in a president's term, warning Americans that the blame game by the Trump administration is just beginning. "Stunning. A complete defeat that I don't think anyone would have predicted in the manner that took place," the former "CBS Evening News" anchor wrote in a Facebook post Friday. "The morass of blame is only beginning."

    The Blaze ^ | February 24, 2017 | Carlos Garcia
    Former CBS News anchor Dan Rather called President Trump a “threat to our democracy” after his actions Friday banning some media from a press gaggle. He authored a scathing note on his Facebook account and sent it out via Twitter Friday evening.(TWEET-AT-LINK) “The time for normalizing, dissembling, and explaining away Donald Trump has long since passed,” the post began. The barring of respected journalistic outlets from the White House briefing is so far beyond the norms and traditions that have governed this republic for generations, that they must be seen as a real and present threat to our democracy.

    Former CBS News anchor Dan Rather slammed the Trump administration on Tuesday evening for its association with former national security adviser Mike Flynn, claiming "this Russia scandal" might end up being as "big as Watergate." As Rather wrote in a Facebook post ... Watergate is the biggest political scandal of my lifetime, until maybe now. It was the closest we came to a debilitating Constitutional crisis, until maybe now. On a 10 scale of armageddon for our form of government, I would put Watergate at a 9. This Russia scandal is currently somewhere around a 5 or 6, in my...

    From the man who brought us “fake but accurate” . . . Dan Rather is possibly the living person least entitled to pontificate about the importance of truth in journalism and politics. So naturally, Chris Matthews invited him on this evening’s Hardball to do just that. Hat tip Colleen B. In criticizing Kellyanne Conway’s use of the term “alternative facts” to explain White House spokesman Sean Spicer’s comments while addressing the press this past Saturday, Rather said: “facts, and the truth . . . are at the very foundation of our democracy.” View the video here.

    Dan Rather, former "CBS Evening News" anchor, said Wednesday that Republican Donald Trump can win the presidency, and Democratic supporters of Hillary Clinton should be "very, very afraid." "I'm not predicting [Trump] will win, but I will say he's capable of winning in November. He has a path," Rather told CNBC's "Squawk Box," adding he does not expect the real estate billionaire to bow to pressure to be more "presidential." "Anybody who thinks Donald Trump is going to moderate himself along the way is either slightly 'touched' or 'smoking something very expensive.' It's not going to happen," said Rather, currently...

It wasn't his first tirade and it won't be his last,” the former CBS Evening News anchor said in a seven-paragraph post, which has already been shared more than 12,000 times.

    During an appearance on CNN's Reliable Sources Sunday, disgraced CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather did his best to excuse the criticism of CNBC’s Republican presidential debate and instead chose to blame Republicans for fueling such hatred towards the press. While Rather briefly admitted that CNBC"didn’t do it perfectly" the liberal journalist quickly blamed the GOP presidential candidates whose "constituency loves attacks on the press. So the moderators open themselves to some criticism." -Rather continued to dismiss the substance of the criticism against CNBC's biased debate and argued that it was just a made up issue by conservatives:

    CBS has refused to run advertising for Truth, the film starring Cate Blanchett and Robert Redford that revisits a painful episode in the network's past involving a discredited 2004 news story on former President George W. Bush's military service record. CBS has denounced the movie, which opens Friday, as a disservice to the public and journalists. Redford plays Dan Rather in Truth, with Blanchett as producer Mary Mapes. Together, they were behind a 60 Minutes II story that questioned Bush's Vietnam War-era commitment to service in the Texas Air National Guard. But CBS apologized for the story after documents used...
