  • Dan Rather: "Hurricane Vladimir" Is "Approaching Category Four" For Trump Presidency

    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...
  • Dan Rather Claims 'Hurricane Vladimir' Is Coming for Fearful Trump

    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...
  • CNN Doubles-Down on Fake News with a Fake Film about Elian Gonzalez

    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 hes 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! Heres 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 MSNBCs 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 Trumps 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 former anchorman of the CBS Evening News has been accused by a website devoted to exposing military corruption of falsely claiming to have been a member of the U.S. Marine Corps.The editor-in-chief of the website www.MilitaryCorruption.com, retired U.S. Army Major Glenn MacDonald,...

He then proceeded to drop a goofy Ratherism as he spewed: The smoke machine is turned on. Theres 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)

    01/27/2017 6:54:17 AM PST · by ProgressingAmerica · 58 replies
    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...
