I still can’t believe liberals are posting Dan Rather “sermons on honesty” quotes on their facebook pages. Every day I see a new Dan Rather quote or link from a liberal.
This brings irony to a whole new level. Dan Rather, the former anchorman for CBS News who retired in disgrace after broadcasting fake news about President Bush, is suddenly sounding the alarm about “lying” and liberals are eating it up.
Dan Rather is a certified liar, international news phony and one of the most renown hypocrites in the history of journalism.
And ironically, in an interview with Bill O’Reilly of Fox News, Rather had much less of a problem with lying when Rather himself famously became the focus of “fake news” when he reported on 2004 that there were a series of discovered memos critical of President George W. Bush’s Texas Air National Guard service during the Vietnam War.
Later it was discovered that Rather faked and forged all of the documents leading to the new dictionary term, “Rather-gate”.
“Who among us have not lied about something?” Rather explained.
“I think you can be an honest person and lie about any number of things.”
CBS retracted the story and fired Mary Mapes, the story’s producer. Rather subsequently retired from his broadcast position in 2005. The entire scandal has become known as both “Memogate” and “Rathergate.”
In 2015, radio host Rush Limbaugh noted of Rather and Mapes, “There is no doubt in anybody’s mind that these two people made this story up or accepted a forged bunch of documents that contributed to it being a story because they wanted to affect the outcome of the 2004 [presidential] race.”
But now liberals hold up Dan Rather as the gatekeeper of honesty.
You just can’t make this stuff up.
