NBC reporter Andrea Mitchell is celebrating 40 years with NBC News and appeared on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show to discuss the milestone. Host Trevor Noah suggested the killings of five reporters in Annapolis could be laid at President Trump’s door (he wasn’t joking). Mitchell demurred, but denounced Trump for calling the media the “enemy of the people.”
Dan Rather appeared on CNN Tonight on Friday. Host Don Lemon engaged the broadcaster in a discussion centered around who could be more outraged at the Trump presidency. Rather took the lead when he called the current administration “straight out of Orwell.”
For some reason, CNN decided that it would air the latest installment of its comprehensive and informative miniseries on recent decades in America history with the 2000s despite the fact that many of the same actors, elected officials, journalists, and TV shows remained relevant into this decade.
The liberal Columbia Journalism Review was thrilled to get an interview with disgraced anchorman Dan Rather.Their headline was "Dan Rather on Trump, Nixon, and why he never worked in network news again." As if pawning off forged documents as "news" wasn't an obvious reason. Kyle Pope began his interview by gushing "Dan Rather is as much an emblem of American journalism as any reporter still alive."
Eighty-six-year-old liberal journalist Dan Rather seems to be getting even more conspiratorial as he ages. The ex-CBS Evening News anchor on Monday speculated that the reason NBA star LeBron James left the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Los Angeles Lakers is to... fight Donald Trump.
Former CBS News anchor Dan Rather spent most of Monday night slamming President Donald Trump as everything from “reckless” and “divisive” on MSNBC’s All In With Chris Hayes to “mean as a wolverine” while a guest on CNN Tonight with host Don Lemon two hours later. While on CNN, Rather asserted: “History is going to not judge well … Republicans in Congress and others who don't speak out when their heart, when their conscience tells them that they should. ... It's not an overstatement to say that what's going on now is a great and decisive battle for the soul of the country.”
While liberal journalists are pooh-poohing in advance any sort of success Donald Trump may have with his summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, that wasn’t the case back in 1994 when Bill Clinton struck a that would have supposedly resolved the nuclear threat from North Korea.
Sometimes liberal journalists just come right out and admit it. On May 27, 1993, Dan Rather told Bill Clinton that he and then-CBS Evening News partner Connie Chung hoped to be as “great” as Clinton and the First Lady. Rather gushed, “Tell Mrs. Clinton we respect her and we’re pulling for here.” Keep in mind, this was FOUR MONTHS into Clinton's presidency.
Talk about a character witness. There was a time before Dan Rather was known as the “disgraced” ex-CBS Evening News journalist. But even before he used phony documents in an attempt to torpedo George W. Bush, Rather had a questionable link to the truth. On May 15, 2001, he proclaimed Bill Clinton an “honest” man, saying, “I think you can be an honest person and lie about any number of things.”
Dan Rather has absolutely no sense of self awareness. The disgraced ex-CBS Evening News anchor on Friday posted video of a keynote speech he gave to the American Geophysical Union. In it, the man who lost his job at CBS over the use of phony documents, attacked the “ignorance” of climate skeptics and praised himself as similar to a scientist: “I believe we journalists and scientists are in many ways kindred spirits. We both try to get as close to the truth as is humanly possible.”
To accompany his Facebook post unleashing a torrent of disdain for the Sinclair Broadcast Group (SBG), disgraced former CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather used his weekly show on the far-left network The Young Turks to expand on the Sinclair ad controversy, denouncing it as “Orwellian” “propaganda” while deeming press criticism as authoritarian behavior.
On Monday, disgraced CBS anchor Dan Rather attacked Sinclair Broadcast Group in a rambling Facebook post because they had their anchors read promotional statements promising to be factual in their reporting. Of course, the man who sank his own career with a fake news story he still believes has a problem with people promising to tell the truth.
