Standing against big government and for the people!
In one week the 50th Anniversary of JFK assassination will be commemorated. CBS News breaking the story launched the career of a young reporter named Dan Rather. It was a good relationship, but that was then, this is now.

The Huffington Post now reports that Rather and CBS are no longer buddies.
Dan Rather is continuing his criticism of CBS News for leaving him out of its commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
Rather's first big break came on the day of the assassination; he was a young reporter working for CBS in Dallas who was one of the first to break the news that Kennedy had been killed. That scoop began a legendary career, almost all of it with CBS.
Since then, though, Rather and CBS have fallen out completely, with the veteran newsman suing the network over his messy ouster following the so-called "Rathergate" scandal in 2004. The breach is total enough that, though footage of Rather will be shown in CBS's special coverage of the anniversary, Rather has not been invited back to share his recollections. Instead, the man who spent most of his working life at CBS will be seen looking back on NBC's "Today."
If you can stomach it a liberal news site called Liberaland confirms story saying;
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 ...:
Question; When did CBS turn conservative? The news then surely doesn't look like it is today. At least before CBS booted him Dan Rather had the guts to apologize for the story of George Bush II and his military career. He didn't blame George Bush.
I remember that day well.
I remember both incidents when Dan Rather reported. He screwed himself when he "investigated" George Bush. Bush whacking was more like it. I don't feel sorry for him at all.
Screw him. No tears for him. I remember his lies.
ALL THOSE LIBERAL LOVING SLAVES AND COMMUNIST, WILL NEVER AGAIN BE ALLOWED TO SERVE IN THE FREE CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNMENT. ANY ONE SERVING MUST TAKE THE OATH, AND MEAN IT OR FACE TREASON CHARGES.
geeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee....what a real bummer there, Danny-boy........excuse me while I shed a tear that you were forgotten.........
My mother always told me lying always came to haunt you. Hope that holds true with Obummer.
For those of you who were alive on November 22, 1963, you may recall how our country was riveted to the TV screen, and especially to CBS where Dan Rather gave us the up-to-the-minute news concerning our president, JFK. That launched him to a stellar career that lasted almost 50 years with CBS. And since then, he has apologized for the unintentional mistake he made in 2004. What has become of our country since then? Consider the scripture, John 8:7 that says, "He that is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone..."
I won't cast a stone B U T All liars do go to HELL you know.
You did but it's OK.
Does Rather mean the Kremlin didn't invite him either? :):)
I'd rather Dan just go sit in a corner somewheres and be still. He had his day....his day is past
strange how when the socialism is imposed on THEM they are suprised. Reminds me of John Lennon saying "he expected to be expelled from communist country, but from America ?" These people are capitalist, they don't "share their wealth". They expect you to share yours ! HYPOCRITES ALL OFF with their HEADS !
