During an appearance on CNN’s Reliable Sources Sunday, disgraced CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather did his best to excuse the criticism of CNBC’s Republican presidential debate and instead chose to blame Republicans for fueling such hatred towards the press. While Rather briefly admitted that CNBC “didn’t do it perfectly” the liberal journalist quickly blamed the GOP presidential candidates whose “constituency loves attacks on the press. So the moderators open themselves to some criticism.”

Three days before CNN’s Republican presidential candidates debate, Jake Tapper, the moderator of it, predicted at least one of those on stage will try to distract from the real issues by attacking him. “I anticipate that at some point somebody is going to take a shot at me as the straw man, as the stand-in for the media writ large,” Tapper forecast Sunday morning from the site of the debate, the Reagan Presidential Museum and Library.

“I think it is unfair that because one undocumented immigrant killed a wonderful human being, that all immigrants are being blamed for that killing,” the Univision anchor stated. “It is as unfair as if we were to criticize all white men in the United States for what happened in that theater in Aurora, Colorado.”
