Dan the Newsman still doesn't get it

I caught some of Dan Rather's appearance on C-SPAN last night. I don't think I ever heard a dude talk so much yet say so little. Obviously, the "Rathergate" phony Bush National Guard document thingie came up. Dan's response?

"The facts of the story were correct. One supporting pillar...was brought into one has proven whether it was what it was purported to be or not....the story is accurate."

Oh, brother! That sure doesn't sound much like Dan from Sept. 2004.

Then, later, Danny adds this gem:

"It's been one of television news' finest moments," Rather said of the Katrina coverage. He likened it to the coverage of President Kennedy's assassination in 1963. "They were willing to speak truth to power," Rather said of the coverage.

Yep, now that we've found out that all that "truth to power" about rapes, killings and "tens of thousands dead" in New Orleans post Katrina was wildly exaggerated and even outright lies, who can think of a "finer moment," eh?

Dan Rather, the gift that keeps on giving. He will go to his grave trying to convince the world that he is a victim. And he will drag the reputation of the liberal media down with him. May your legacy shine on forever, Dan, or at least through the next few elections.
Dan Burkett = "unimpeachable source". That is Dan's contribution to journalistic integrity. More so than his forged documents in the heat of a free election.
