The liberal Dimocrats of the UT Journalism department still puff their famous (now infamous) graduate Dan “Mr. Suspenders” Rather, bringing him on at awards and fund-raising events. He outlasted Walter Cronkite in the CBS anchor job, after all, even if he was lacking the integrity of Edward R. Murrow.
“CBS News earned what now looks like a permanent stain on its reputation, after Dan Rather was forced out for pushing ‘fake but accurate’ smears against President George W. Bush in 2004. When a news division screws up as badly as they did, and then had their star anchor forced out by a bunch of ‘bloggers in their pajamas,’ you’d think they’d try to fix the situation by doubling down on integrity.”
Nope. They lost that long ago with Mr. Suspenders. Old fake-but-accurate his ownself. Instead, they’ve doubled down on vicious bias with the lastest of his successors, the floundering Norah O’Donnell. Fourth in a field of three.
