Dan Rather Savages CBS News For Snub
This writer is pleased to see Dan Rather taking the stealth conservatives who now run CBS News to the woodshed, especially given that the network hung him out to dry after a rigged “investigation” into former Texas governor George W. Bush’s failure to fulfil his obligations to the Texas and Alabama National Guards that was run by GOP partisans. Rather is especially incensed about CBS News’ Soviet-style “memory hole”:
‘They were trying to airbrush me out of their history, like the Kremlin,” he told columnist Gail Shister. “I had hoped that whatever animus was there, as time goes by, would fade, and maybe they would change their minds. What’s next – I’m airbrushed out of Watergate coverage? Vietnam? Tiananmen Square? 9/11? Where does this lead?”
Rather, who reported on the JFK assassination first-hand from Dallas, will be hosting his own JFK special on AXS TV.
