The Rather-Gate is getting Rather interesting. Get it…Rather…rather…oh nevermind.
Once the blog community exposed the deception with the CBS Bush report having to do with his Guard service, I just chalked it up to the liberal media. Little did I know how deep and contrived the story was until the recent firings at CBS and subsequent media stories regarding the cover-up. It’s really quite amazing that a story, based on obviously contrived evidence, could make it to our eyes and ears through the national media. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not completely ignorant and believe everything I see on the channel 9 news…quite the opposite. I’m just surprised that there was such an oversight and attempted cover-up that made it through all of the supposed checks and balances of producing a national news program.
The latest article I’ve read on the subject was from Ann Coulter. Granted, she’s as conservative as it comes and is expected to have a field day with this, but she gives some additional insight into the scandal and walks through the steps of how it all took place. It’s on her home page right now, but once she writes a new article this one will be in her archives. So if the article on the home page isn’t titled “Liar, Liar, Now You’re Fired”, try this link to her archives (I’m guessing where it will be, so if this link doesn’t work just look in the archives for the article. I know, manual labor.)
My favorite Rather quote to date: “I think you can be an honest person and lie about any number of things.”
The retirement party that wouldn’t end.
