I don’t want to post about RatherGate all the time but there is just so much material to mine from these absurd events. In a interview last night Howard Kurtz reports that Dan Rather said this.
"If the documents are not what we were led to believe, I’d like to break that story."
Does he honestly think that a story doesn’t break until he reports on it? Sorry Dan, the story broke a week ago and by his standard of breaking news I have some of my own scoops.
Breaking News!!! Rome besieged by vandals.
Constantinople Sacked! – News at eleven.
Pearl Harbor bombed in sneak attack – developing.
We must remember that CBS is an objective news source. Their objective is to defeat Bush. You have to credit them for never letting facts get in the way of accuracy
