CBS is America's News Ouroboros

This week, former CBS Evening News presenter Dan Rather blamed the producers for the plummeting ratings of his former news show because they have been "dumbing it down” and “tarting it up." Ha! The last time the Evening News was top dog is when the Iran-Contra Affair was burning up the wires.

Of course these horrid ratings have nothing to do with the blatant liberal bias, the poor production, or the fact that Katie Couric makes Jimmy Olson from Superman look like Bob Woodward. Nawww. You know what the real reason is? Americans are SEXIST!
“I’m sort of surprised by the vitriol against her. The number of people who don’t want news from a woman was startling,”
I suppose the fact that nearly all, if not all, local network news casts in the United States are co-anchored by a man and woman(this is a tried and true formula) matters. It seems to me that Moonves and Kaplan are trying to GUILT the American public in to watching their news program, they have become so desperate. Bernie Goldberg had it sooo right when he wrote Bias.

It gets even better… Rather goes on FOX NEWS to deliver his reply. FOX NEWS! The evil neo-con propaganda machine, and HQ of the Neo-NAZI's, and the KKK:

Kaplan Strikes Back when he brings up the “Memogate” affair that was more likely than not the push that propelled Halliburton Bush to victory in 2004. I imagine that CBS and Dan feel like soccer players that kicked a goal for the other team. Rather himself to this day still claims that the forged documents were genuine, even though they were certainly not. CBS used to back him, but in light of his comments, would they now throw him under the bus? Of course:
"We had to build back from when Dan left,"
Interesting.I thought M.C. Rove was behind that. Huh

The Washington Post has a good summary.

A lie told often enough becomes the truth.
