    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...

    Political left has expanded, is still expanding, all their thinking, their bile and poison, all their money, their energies, all of their political capital against their self interest in their mindless, unselfconscious hatred of Donald Trump Indeed it is. Clear, that Dan Rather is mad. What we have here is a menagerie of loose screws tied up in one body being interviewed by a network where incoherence, magical thinking, hatefulness and madness is the norm. Exceptions that may seem normal on this network are about as rare as a Chris Matthews’ lucid moment.

    Thursday on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show,” former CBS anchor Dan Rather said the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign was “reassuring” given it makes President Donald Trump “the hunted.” Rather said, “What a news night, almost surreal. And of course dangerous for the country. But in the same token, I do think there is something reassuring about this. For most of the early stages of the Trump presidency, the question begged are we still a country of laws or have we become or are we becoming...

    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...

    Ever since his forced resignation in disgrace, Dan Rather has continued on a downward spiral. His career, such as it is, has been kept alive by appearances on the Rachel Maddow show on MSNBC, where he takes potshots at his former employer and President Donald Trump.

    The disgraced former anchor of CBS Evening News began his rant by listing what he viewed were “unfounded allegations that clutter our news feed” like Susan Rice and the “wiretapping of the Trump team.” He then proceeded to drop a goofy “Ratherism” as he spewed: “The smoke machine is turned on. There’s a trained monkey dancing in the corner. The magician is buckling his cufflinks."

    This story has been floating around since 2004, but very few people had actually seen the picture of Danny Boy in his Marine dress blues until he put it in his latest book. Dan Rather reminds us of M. Larry Lawrence who, claimed the right to be buried in Arlington because he had had served in the Merchant Marine during WWII and had been injured. In fact, he had avoided the draft and never served. Dan Rather, Larry Lawrence, etc. etc...

    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...
  • Who is the founding father of fake news? (It isn't Dan Rather)

    There's a lot of talk about "fake news" these days, but lost in the 'here we are' is the 'how did we get here'. Some websites have proclaimed Dan Rather the founder of fake news, others have crowned Brian Williams as such. Understanding fake news is impossible without a full-scale structural analysis of "objective journalism" itself, because "objective journalism" was designed to facilitate fake news. The name to know is Walter Lippmann. Walter Lippmann is generally regarded as the father of modern journalism, and as most of us know, modern journalism is what it is today because of the concept...

    Dan Rather warned Americans about the Trump administration in a Facebook post on Sunday, saying these are not "normal times." The former CBS Evening news anchor targeted President Trump, adviser Kellyanne Conway and press secretary Sean Spicer for comments in the last 24 hours. "When you have a spokesperson for the president of the United States wrap up a lie in the Orwellian phrase 'alternative facts' ..." Rather wrote. "When you have a press secretary in his first appearance before the White House reporters threaten, bully, lie, and then walk out of the briefing room without the cajones to...

    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.

    (CBS) A German resident held by the U.S. for almost five years tells 60 Minutes correspondent Scott Pelley that Americans tortured him in many ways - including hanging him from the ceiling for five days early in his captivity when he was in Kandahar, Afghanistan. Even after determining he was not a terrorist, Murat Kurnaz says the torture continued. Kurnaz tells his story for the first time on American television this Sunday, March 30, at 7 p.m. ET/PT. Kurnaz, an ethnic Turk born and raised in Germany, went to Pakistan in late 2001 at age 19 to study Islam and...

    Donald Trump’s “running war” on the media is continuing into his presidency, with statements over the weekend calling into question the extent to which information from the White House can be trusted. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer on Monday will hold his first daily press briefing at which he could face questions about a statement Saturday night that included demonstrably false assertions about the crowd size at Friday’s inauguration and a promise by the new administration that “we’re going to hold the press accountable.” Some Trump supporters will no doubt cheer the continued antagonism toward the media that was...
