Skip to comments.Dan Rather Lectures Kellyanne Conway on “Facts and Truth”
Posted on 01/24/2017 4:06:35 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest
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 evenings Hardball to do just that. Hat tip Colleen B.
In criticizing Kellyanne Conways use of the term alternative facts to explain White House spokesman Sean Spicers comments while addressing the press this past Saturday, Rather said: facts, and the truth . . . are at the very foundation of our democracy.

What’s worse: Dan Rather lecturing the Trump admin about the importance of “truth,” or Chris Matthews giving Rather a platform to do so?
Ping to Liberal Media Criticism list.
Tomorrow night on Hardball: special guest President Bill Clinton talks about the importance of fidelity in marriage!
Dan is morphing into some science fiction alien.
Our entire legal system is built upon the adversarial system of opposing sides presenting various facts in their favor.
That is pretty clearly the sort of dynamic that she was aptly describing.
I so despise the MSM.
That’s like Al Sharpton lecturing someone on the tax deadline.
I encourage people to view the video. It does seem that Rather’s faculties are slipping.
They are trying to rehabilitate this abject liar into some sort of Newsworthy authority figure since half a generation has passed since he was run out of newsdom on a rail.
They are just not going to get away with it that easily. The internet remembers EVERYTHING, even if these ghouls succeed in hiding parts of it. It ALWAYS outs the truth in the end. FU Dan Rather. And Mary Mapes.
The following night it will be former president Obama lecturing us on the virtues of hard work
He does practice chipping and putting for an hour a day.
“To say it was unfortunate is to put it mildly. This was a big mistake. Listen: we cannot, we simply cannot. I dont mean journalists, I mean writers per se. None of us can go into in this world of alternative facts. Listen: two plus two equals four. Thats a fact. Theres no alternative to it”
Gee Dan, I wonder if we could go over videos of your reports on Nixon and Watergate that Walter Cronkite wheeled out so dutifully and look for the alternative facts in them.
I know what alternative facts are. I was here for the 8 years of Barack Obama’s Presidency!
Just about every site in 2017 is LOADED with crap pop ups and unders and slowing traffic that does 99.99% of internet users no good at all.
In as much as Ms Clinton told Mr Clinton to go **** an intern. He WAS. Being faithful to her heinous.
And the next night a Taliban leader to talk about women’s rights.
Hey Dan, you embarrassed yourself once, don’t do it again. Go away.
