And you can’t blame CBS. When your fake journalist’s pathetic attempt at a gotcha story turns out to have come from a Vietnam War era copy of Microsoft Word, you shove him into the biggest darkest hole there is where he does television recaps of the Newsroom. (No, really.)
The LA Times story never mentions the words “Microsoft Word”. Instead there’s a conspiracy. Evil corporate interests are mysteriously removing Dan Rather from history because they’re being all corporatey.
Maybe CBS killed JFK. Before killing Dan Rather’s career. You never know.
Former “CBS Evening News” anchor Dan Rather participated in a media conference call Thursday to discuss AXS TV’s one-hour special, “My Days in Dallas: A Remembrance With Dan Rather,” which premieres Monday at 5 p.m. PST.
What is ASX.tv? Well it’s the home of such quality programming as Bikini Barbershop and World’s Greatest Tribute Bands, Bikini Destinations, Tom Green and Drinking Made Easy with Zane Lamprey.
Also Dan Rather Reports.
Yes, that’s how low he has sunk.
Rather was present in Dallas 50 years ago when Kennedy was assassinated and became a go-to presence on the scene for CBS as those dark days unfolded. Notably, CBS did not include Rather in its own planned coverage of the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy assassination. Rather appears only in archival footage.
This wasn’t exactly unexpected, said Rather–it’s been happening since he lost his job in a somewhat mysterious sequence of events after he reported on “60 Minutes” that a series of memos questioning President George W. Bush’s Texas Air National Guard service record had been discovered.
Yes, it’s mysterious. Someone mysteriously presented a mysterious letter typed up on Microsoft Word, which Dan Rather claimed dated back to the Vietnam War.
There’s only one possible explanation. Time travel.
Or maybe Dan Rather is a lying liar.
The authenticity of the documents was soon called into question, although Rather defended the truth of the story.
“This follows the pattern that they’ve had for some years of in effect trying to airbrush me out of their history,” Rather said of CBS’ choice to not include him in their Kennedy assassination coverage. “That doesn’t bother me all that much nor should it…But I think the news consumer might want to question whether you want large corporations trying to change history for their corporate interests.”
Dan Rather is delusional enough to think that CBS not including the guy whose program airs on the same channel as Bikini Destinations is changing history.
“Our story, the Bush story for which I eventually lost my job and other people lost theirs, was a true story,” Rather said. “One can argue about the process by which we got to the story but ours was a true story, never been denied by the president.”
Also President Bush never denied using hologram planes to fake 9/11. It must be true!
Dan Rather will be remembered for two things. Fake but accurate. And. “What’s the frequency, Kenneth.” It seems he’s doubling down on Fake, but Accurate.
