    This wasn't simply dismissing something as fake news. Dan Rather actually literally tried to push a news story based on forged documents.
    It is amazing what the left will defend...almost as amazing as what they get their panties in a wad over.

    ANY lack of credibility is a complete lack of credibility.

    Dan Rather didn't need to go into retirement and never ever weigh in on anything again.

    But on this subject, he torched his credibility and doubled down on his mistake in his so-called apology. If he ever frankly admitted his wrongdoing, show me the quote. All he does is remind us that people like him are still there, still unethically trying to shape our thought, still being held up by networks as someone we should listen to, still pushing us to alternative forms of media.

    He is the poster child for what he is warning against, and again he becomes the story. He, not the problem he supposedly wants to solve. He offers no solutions. Media who want to be considered credible need not to get cozy with Rather. Not on this subject.
