Dan Rather is a washed up has-been trying to be relevant again. Saw him hunched over, stumbling along at RNC. He feels the media today should publicly shame Donald Trump supporters for his own sick reasons listed in his Facebook post.
Here’s a memo for you Dan, it’s time for “We the People” to shame the corrupt mass propaganda media publicly for their biased, dishonest “reporting,” of which Rather is the poster boy!
Rather is worse than Brian Williams. Williams was just a liar while Rather committed fraud and tampering with government documents when he reported about George Bush and his national guard service. Anyone else would be in jail for what he did only liberals get away with that crap.
From Rather’s Facebook:
No trying-to-be objective and fair journalist, no citizen who cares about the country and its future can ignore what Donald Trump said today. When he suggested that “The Second Amendment People” can stop Hillary Clinton he crossed a line with dangerous potential. By any objective analysis, this is a new low and unprecedented in the history of American presidential politics. This is no longer about policy, civility, decency or even temperament. This is a direct threat of violence against a political rival. It is not just against the norms of American politics; it raises a serious question of whether it is against the law. If any other citizen had said this about a Presidential candidate, would the Secret Service be investigating?
To anyone who still pretends this is a normal election of Republican against Democrat, history is watching. And I suspect its verdict will be harsh. Many have tried to do a side-shuffle and issue statements saying they strongly disagree with his rhetoric but still support the candidate. That is becoming woefully insufficient. The rhetoric is the candidate.
This cannot be treated as just another outrageous moment in the campaign. We will see whether major newscasts explain how grave and unprecedented this is and whether the headlines in tomorrow’s newspapers do it justice. We will soon know whether anyone who has publicly supported Trump explains how they can continue to do.
Here is Rather’s full statement (Click on See More):
I miss the good old days where the media simply reported the news and allowed you to form your own opinions. In fact, it was considered unprofessional and a big no-no for a reporter or anchor to express their personal opinion on an issue.
Now people actually allow the media to persuade them with their never-ending personal interpretation of an issue or news item.
I am glad I was raised in a time when the media actual assumed I could think for myself and respected the concept of unbiased reporting.
People like Mr. Rather think the media is now a weapon. Perhaps it is time to disarm the media by thinking for ourselves!
