Rather is part of the problem
July 29, 2009
Dan Rather, in an address at The Aspen Institute, calls on President Obama to establish a government commission dedicated to preventing the downward spiral of mainstream media? What exactly does he want – a government bailout of yet another industry? As if the media in this country isn’t politicized enough. . .
Perhaps Mr. Rather should look in the mirror. In reflecting on the latter part of his own career, he will see a man who could not resist the temptation to let naked political bias trump his dispassionate journalistic objectivity. He will see a microcosm of exactly why his beloved mainstream media is in decline.
