Dan Rather to leave anchor

In a move that was called for back in early October when Rather was trying to float forged documents as "accurate" despite their inauthenticity, Dan Rather is finally stepping down as the anchor of CBS News. Reportedly, he will not retire completely, but will remain as a "reporter" in the field. Though, why a news organization would want to hire someone with a proven record of news manufacturing is beyond me. I, for one, will inform CBS that any story with a Dan Rather byline will be suspected as pure fabrications and that they would do much better to put Mr. Rather out to pasture where he can invent stories in his rocking chair and talk to his cat.

I doubt that this change at CBS News will bring more accurate news reporting to the network. They'll just get another talking head full of hot air to spew the lies that Americans have grown so leery of. WCCO should not expect me to be tuning in to their news reports just because their parent network has taken measures to obscure their blatant bias and lies.

    What's to leave? As Lileks bleated, no one outside DC bothers watching any evening network news show. Unless "the investigation" hits hard and names names, Rather may outlast The CBS Evening News.

    I wish you are Lileks were right, R-Five.

    The liberal biased MSM accounts for at least a 15 point favor that Kerry enjoyed. Many, many Americans are horn-swaggled into believing that Iraq is a quagmire and is a dismal failure for the Bush Administration.

    The facts speak to a remarkably different reality. Dan Rather and CBS News are a serious threat to our nation's well-being as they try to wear down the public's resolve to stay the course in the GWOT.
