    Not even from an old dinosaur like Dan Rather.

    The era of big propaganda and big media is coming to an end.
    I always get a laugh when you post this "meme" - seeing how big a fan of Breitbart (home to the alt-right) that you are.

    We should expand this theory beyond Dan Rather and the media. We can call it the PH Dan Rather Rule. If anyone is wrong about something they post, they can never ever ever post again. Seems fair.

    Very true. But it also doesn't immediately disqualify anything he says.

    it's just that real journalist are held to a higher standard. If he worked for Fox News he would have gotten a raise.

    It just failed the British regulators' fair and balanced standard. To the point where Fox "News" will be dropped from the package to get a licence.
