    I was just watching Scarborough Country and apparently Dan Rather has challenged everyone else to prove him wrong. Keep in mind,it is a journalists duty as Joe S. would say,to prove his info to be true. This is the conversation Joe S. just had with Bernie Goldberg,author of "Arrogance",a book about Liberal bias in the media. Gee,I wonder why he called his book that? I want to see Rather go down. He is far from a real journalist. :spank3:

    Lol even the top liberals have the "prove my Bullshit wrong" mentality. I apologize to all the token liberals on this board who i thought were just acting childish. Now i realize they are just following their party's leaders and icons. :lame2:

    This logic seems much akin to Bush vis-a-vis National Guard service. He makes statements about his Guard Service, and when holes appear, exposed by the media, conservatives take the "prove us wrong" approach. Instead, why doesn't Bush "prove himself right" by identifying people he served with at Dannelly in the latter half of '72. Same logic, right? Except Bush doesn't have the integrity of a journalist. Well, not counting Dan Rather. Or Robert Novac. Or Bill O'Rielly. Or Ron Suskind. Or Sean Hannity.

    You are unfreakin believable. Bush releases ALL of his guard records 3 separate times for ALL to see PROVING for all that have a freaking brain that he served not only his alotted amount of time, but then some in flight training and service in the Air force as well as the Air National Guard. The only problem lies with liberals who can't seem to let it go. Its one note they can't seem to hit right but insist on trying it till they get it right or fake it (ala the forged documents at CBS).

    Yet you'll wonder why you lose in a landslide in november when youve been pushing Kerry as a Vietnam War hero and Bush as aVietnam deserter 30 years after that war ended. :boohoo:

    Surely you jest? Tell your friend McAulliffe that the 60 Minutes story is a crock of shit. No matter how much you guys will it to be true, dead horses don't walk.

    I guess there's a lot to be said for sheer audacity. This guy makes a thirty-year carrer out of presenting the worst kind of madly spinning propoganda as objective fact. Now, he's been caught dead to rights, and has the gall to say, "prove me wrong"!

    I truly believe that he is arrogant and contemptuous enough to believe he can brazen his way out of this. Maybe he's right.

    As I recall the last person to issue such a challenge to the press
    was Gary Hart. If the press takes R up on his challenge he's toast.
    Maybe he's ready to retire and needs to break a contract..
    this'll do it.

    I've been thinking the same thing. If a journalist is willing to sacrifice his credibility in such an arrogant matter this will follow him the rest of his life. What important story is he going to be assigned from here on out?

    Actually what Im wondering is this...Isn't in incumbat upon any journalist to prove the authenticity of his/her documents, especially when leveling such a charge at a President, not for us to prove they are false????
    That's like going into a court of law with the assumption that someone is guilty and they need to prove their innocence.

    Rather by doing this is the epitome of ARROGANCE!!!!
