    In a televised interview with former CBSer Marvin Kalb, retired CBS anchor Dan Rather stated that his network will not allow him to continue to pursue the story of President Bush's Air Guard service. "Straight-up, no chaser, no," the exiled anchor said when asked if he would consider filing a story about it on the "60 Minutes" news magazine since he continues to believe in it. "CBS News doesn't want me to do that story. They wouldn't let me do that story," Rather said, declining to elaborate further. (See it in WMV or RealMedia video.) Rather also expressed suspicion about...

    Former CBS News anchorman Dan Rather was reminded of his past Wednesday night, receiving an onslaught of criticism after citing “truth” when mocking the popular phrase, “Let’s Go, Brandon.” Rather, who was fired from his post as the anchorman in the early 2000s after infamously running a hit piece on former President George W. Bush which was later revealed to contain forged documents — received backlash on social media when he tweeted, “#LetsGoBrandonReallyMeans ‘You can’t handle the truth.’”

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

    01/30/2021 9:41:20 PM PST · by nickcarraway · 19 replies
    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...

    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.

  • 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”...
