  • How the KGB Convinced the World That AIDS Was a Pentagon Invention

    The covert disinformation campaign was secretly codenamed ‘Operation INFEKTION’. In July 1983, an Indian newspaper in New Delhi published an article alleging “U.S. experiments” were the likely cause of a new mysterious disease dubbed ‘AIDS’. Five years later, CBS anchor Dan Rather announced to millions of concerned Americans allegations that their own military might have been behind the deadly virus. On that very day, a few KGB operatives in the secret agency’s Lubyanka headquarters in Moscow likely praised each other for a job well done. The story about U.S. military experiments that might have produced AIDS caught up slowly but...
  • Dan Rather Medals for News and Guts

    Do a good job and report the truth, and you're probably going to catch hell. The challenge is being willing to do it anyway. — Dan Rather The Dan Rather Medals for News and Guts honor the process of journalism as much as the end product. They will be awarded to professional and collegiate journalists who go the extra yard — overcoming obstacles like stonewalling and harassment — to get the story that tells truth to power. The Medals are named for Dan Rather, the legendary reporter and anchor who went far afield from his Texan roots but never forgot...

    The mood was panicky on MSNBC's AM Joy this morning when guest host Jonathan Capehart brought on disgraced ex-CBS anchor Dan Rather to discuss the election. Rather began by casting the election as a choice between racism and freedom! Expressing his concerns about President Trump and his administration, Rather used the word "dangerous" no fewer than ten times.And check out the panicky expression on poor Jonathan Capehart's face, worried that Pres. Trump will win! Ping to Liberal Media Criticism list.
  • Dan Rather Enthusiastic About Atlantic Article on Trump

    Breitbart ^ | 6 Sep 2020 | Joel B. Pollak
    Dan Rather, the former CBS anchor whose career ended because of a false story about President George W. Bush’s military service in 2004, tweeted several times in support of the Atlantic‘s story about President Donald Trump disparaging the troops. The Atlantic alleged that Trump had called fallen American soldiers in the First World War “suckers” and “losers.” Its sources were anonymous, and nearly a dozen witnesses went on the record to dispute author Jeffrey Goldberg’s claims. A subsequent report by Fox News’ Jennifer Griffin could not confirm the central allegation of the story, though she claimed — again, using anonymous...

    Minneapolis: Dropping any pretense of objectivity and non-partisanship, the “National Conference for Media Reform” on Saturday night turned into a Barack Obama-for-President rally, as left-wing media figure Arianna Huffington denounced Senator and presumptive Republican presidential nominee John McCain as a “Trojan horse for the right” who had “sold his soul” to become president. Several speakers, including Federal Communications Commissioner Michael Copps, used the Obama campaign slogan, “Yes, we can,” as they urged the thousands of “progressives” in the audience to bring “change” to Washington, D.C. --------------------------------------------------------- Meanwhile, a Canadian, Naomi Klein, who writes for the British Guardian and The Nation...
  • When Most Americans Blindly Believed the Word of a China-linked Communist Dictator

    “Americans reported bipartisan distrust of the (communist) Chinese government’s public statements about the coronavirus pandemic…according to a new Harris poll. Ninety percent of Republican respondents said that China was to blame for the spread of the coronavirus, and 67 percent of Democrats concurred," National Review reports. And yet, 20 years ago this very month, according to Gallup: “Americans say it’s in Elian Gonzalez best interest to return to (communist) Cuba with his father…a majority (of Americans) favor Elian’s physical removal from the home of his Miami relatives if necessary.” So how did such a majority American opinion come about? Well,...

    New York Times reporter Nick Confessore jabbed at Trump critics Tuesday over their claims that White House officials bucking subpoenas might herald the end of democracy. In just two tweets, Confessore pointed out that there is precedent for a showdown between a White House and an oppositional Congress over who does and who doesn’t comply with the inevitable subpoenas. “Another crazy NYT story here about the White House ignoring a congressional subpoena, like it’s a choice or something,” Confessore tweeted, along with a NYT story about an Obama official refusing to comply with a subpoena. He followed that with a...

    Foreign policy expert Ian Bremmer, the president and founder of Eurasia Group and a New York University political science professor, got in big trouble Sunday for tweeting a fake quote attributed to President Trump, then claiming it was “plausible” the president would say it. “Kim Jong Un is smarter and would make a better President than Sleepy Joe Biden,” Bremmer wrote in the now-deleted tweet, attributing it to Trump. North Korea has labeled Biden a “fool of low IQ” and an “imbecile bereft of elementary quality as a human being” after the U.S. presidential hopeful recently called North Korean leader...

    Ex-'CBS Evening News' anchor Dan Rather blasted President Trump Thursday, calling him the "biggest purveyor of fake news" amid Trump's ongoing feud with the media. During his appearance on "The Dan Abrams Show" on Thursday, Rather admitted that journalists "make mistakes," but insisted that was different from "fake news." ....... Rather, 87, retired from CBS in 2005, months after airing unverified documents in a report about President George W. Bush’s service in the Texas Air National Guard prior to the 2004 election. He now makes frequent appearances on CNN and MSNBC.
  • US army 'took terror suspect' from vigilante group

    07/22/2004 7:04:43 AM PDT · by Valin · 222+ views
    The US military today acknowledged it held an Afghan man for a month after receiving him from three American counter-terror vigilantes who have since been arrested on charges of torture at a private jail they ran in the Afghan capital. The American military has tried to distance itself from the group, led by a former American soldier named Jonathan Idema, insisting they were freelancers working outside the law. But spokesman Major Jon Siepmann acknowledged that the military had received a detainee from Idema’s group at Bagram Air Base, north of Kabul, on May 3. Siepmann said Idema had appeared “questionable”...

    “Top Obama-linked lawyer (Gregory B. Craig) on Mueller chopping block, could be first Dem indicted under probe." (BizPac Review, March 19)“Oh well, ho hum,” say many bemused Cuba-watchers, “better late than never.”Because you see, amigos: Gregory Craig’s shenanigans with Manafort and Yanukoych seem like mild mischief compared to his shenanigans on behalf of Bill Clinton, Dan Rather and  Fidel Castro. At the time of these later-named shenanigans, the aforementioned president of the U.S. (Clinton) and the megastar of the U.S. media (Rather) were dutifully and cravenly fulfilling the express wishes of the mass-murdering, terror-sponsoring dictator whose lifelong craving was to nuke...

    one of the great things about the internet is that we can hear from an actual expert in destructive testing of gas cylinders in a controversy where condition of gas cylinder is of critical importance. Not just from NGOs and neocon think tanks. Dan Rather's downfall came because (as I recall) a typewriter specialist was able to recognize that fonts in forged document were not available in 1970s. An expert in relevant narrow topic observed detail that eluded the news reporters and think tanks. outing of Dan Rather was cool and one of first examples of outside eyes on establishment...

    CBS White House correspondent Major Garrett doesn’t buy the portrayal of President Trump as an enemy of the media and a chief executive who has eliminated access for journalists. “He loves us, and he hates us, and he loves us,” he said with a laugh. “There is more access to this president than there was to Obama. We see him all the time. He takes questions a lot,” Garrett said. “We see him and interact with him and punch in questions with far more frequency than with Obama. Probably more so than for W. Bush,” he added. Much more a...

    Newsbusters ^ | 1/25/18 | Scott Whitlock
    On Monday, January 25, 1988, 30 years ago tonight, Americans across the country saw with their own eyes an early example of the ugly liberal media attack machine. Dan Rather, the anchor of the CBS Evening News at the time, laid a trap and attempted to ambush then-Vice President George H.W. Bush on live TV. Of course, Rather’s goal was to embarrass the leading Republican contender for the 1988 Republican presidential nomination.  The segment was supposed to be a “candidate’s profile.” Instead, Rather screamed at the Vice President over the Iran-Contra scandal, making it the sole topic discussed. Visibly angry, he berated...

    Cliff Kincaid, editor of Accuracy in Media (AIM), commented that, "Rather's reference to Abu Ghraib, in the context of preparing the bogus attack on Bush, demonstrates that the agenda of Rather and CBS was not only to sabotage Bush's re-election campaign but to undermine the war in Iraq. They were looking for 'big' stories to hurt the U.S. at home and abroad. The Abu Ghraib story on CBS inflamed the Arab/Muslim world against the U.S., inevitably costing the lives of more American soldiers in Iraq at the hands of fanatical Muslim terrorists." AIM and Romerstein drew attention to another bombshell...
