Remember the phony Bush National Guard story that CBS News anchor Dan Rather tried to use to swing the 2004 presidential election to John Kerry? Four people at CBS, including Dan Rather were fired after a 244 page report on the investigation by an independent team at CBS found Rather's report violated the "core principles of fairness and accuracy" at CBS News and that the authenticity of the documents was never verified. Also, when questions were raised about their reporting Rather and his team dug in their heels and "virtually no attempt was made to determine whether the questions raised had merit."
Four CBS personnel, including anchor Dan Rather were fired for their part in the charade.
Well, lying libs never give up. Now, the movie "Truth" is trying to make heroes of Dan Rather, his producer and the team that cooked up and spread that big lie. Dan Rather attended a premier for the film in Toronto where he took back his previous apology and statement that he "no longer ha[s] confidence in these documents" and now says that "there has never been any doubt the story was true."
Responding to the film, CBS News had this statement:
“It’s astounding how little truth there is in ‘Truth,’” a CBS spokesman said in response to Variety’s inquiry. “There are, in fact, too many distortions, evasions and baseless conspiracy theories to enumerate them all. The film tries to turn gross errors of journalism and judgment into acts of heroism and martyrdom. That’s a disservice not just to the public but to journalists across the world who go out every day and do everything within their power, sometimes at great risk to themselves, to get the story right.”But no doubt Rather and the others involved will find some way to profit from this new adventure in truth telling.
No truth in truth?
It wouldn't be the first time and it won't be the last. How many times has Obama or some other Dem big wig told you that 97% of scientists agree man is to blame for global warming. Except it isn't true and everyone who pays the slightest attention knows it (1,2). Just like the lie that extreme weather events are increasing when for the most part they are either staying the same or decreasing. Or the whole "hands up don't shoot" lie from Ferguson Missouri all started by Mike Brown's accomplice in crime and refuted in sworn testimony by every other witness!
You have to hand it to the left. Not only do they keep on repeating the lies to suck in the gullible (Stalin called them "useful idiots") they make heroes of the liars and find a way to enrich them with book and film deals (or in the case of global warming an endless gravy train of government grants). Those on the right could never pull off the same scam. They would be hounded by the very same media that continues to look the other way at the left's lies!
