    "... we're perceived as 'anti-Bush'....".

    Gee - do you think so?

    "... Dan, who is a fine journalist...".

    Yes - we've seen.

    In the end, money's gonna talk, and bullshit's gonna walk. It's not written down anyplace, but it's still the law. So long, dickhead.

    I refuse to even go onto a CBS News website. I'm not turning on their news, especially not Dan Rather.

    People should have turned their backs on CBS right after they released the Abu Ghaib photographs. CBS published the photographs even after they had been asked not to by the military, which had made it clear to CBS they were in the process of taking care of the concerns. Any news organization that would sell its own country down the river like they did in time of war doesn't deserve an audience. Holding CBS accountable for this latest episode is long overdue. They have been able to get away with partisanship in the news with no accountability for much too long.

    WTF is wrong with these people? It's unfair that someone would see Dan Rather is anti-Bush? Give me a freaking break. Maybe that's because America is seeing his antics now and are tired of them! But,it's probably because he is anti Bush!!! That has got to be the pukiest news show i have ever seen.

    :poop:

    How bout the time Rather declared the Tet offensive a major defeat when in reality it was a victory for the US. A costly victory but far from a defeat. Rather delcared over the airwaves that "we lost", demoralizing the troops and strengthening the VC. He's long since been a traitor to this country.

    When did this country become so nationalistic? Talk about creepy when somebody who opposes a president is demonized.

    Nationalism is the disease of mankind. Don't love this nation because it is simply America, love it for what it stands for.

    "Opposes" is one thing, trying to throw an election by abusing your position as a news anchor is another.........

    Oh please. Dan Rather isn't the host of a commentary show, he's the news anchor of a major network. He is suppose to be a joarnalist. He is suppose to be impartial. That goes for anybody working with CBS "News". The way they reported this story and handled the so called investigation is blatent bias.
