Take a damaging true story and preemptively leak it to a reporter with enough bogus details stirred in to discredit the reporter and the story itself.

Get the Dan Rathered mug.
A "journalist" better known for sayings like:

"Let's hit these biscuits with a dab of gravy."

than actual news reporting.

A newsman with a vendetta that came close to tears on the night of November 2, 2004 when he had to announce that the guy he made up documents to smear ( President George W. Bush) had actually won the election while he (Dan Rather) had lost what little credibility he had left.
What's the frequency, Kenneth?

Dan Rather needs to wipe his mouth once in a while. He drools more than my dog.

A news reader who can't distinguish news from partisan idealogy and innuendo.
When Dan Blather was caught using known faked documents on C-B.S's hit piece on Bush, he accused everyone else of the same things he himself was guilty of for years. He even had the arrogance to state that even though the docs were faked, the message is true. Nice going, schmuck.

Damn Blather knows damn well he is going to retire and so he's taking his best parting shot at Bush by doing a bogus story involving forged documents.

Damn Blather is such a phoney!

Dan Rather is a real newsman, part of a generation of trusted, introspective sources, along with Peter Jennings and Tom Brokaw. But with Jennings dead, Brokaw retired, and Rather forced from CBS within a year of each other, news as we know it has ended. Rather is a real reporter, unlike Katie Couric, his replacement after Bob Schieffer (who is a real newsman as well) is taken from his interim role. Rather is well known for his reports on Kennedy's assassination, Nixon's impeachment, Vietnam, the fall of the Berlin Wall, and Suddam's tourture chambers.

Unfortunately, Rather will be remembered for his drawn out voice and one error in reporting, more than for all the good things he did. Like the news has never fucked up a little deatail in a story before?

Rather is also probably the only reporter to have a top 10 rock his written about him. REM's What's the Frequency, Kenneth, is about an incident in the 1980s in which a crazy guy beat up Rather because he thought the media was controling him mind.
Dan Rather reported real news. Not like this bullshit from Catie Kouric, or the fake and twisted news from Fox.
