    Yeah I saw that "ambush" newsreal. Uh-huh. A REEEEAL ambush. The reporter was VERY polite and threw nothing but amicable softball questions. rather smiled through the whole thing, and they shook hands when danny got in his limo.

    Real "ambush"... :lame2:

    This also caught my interest:

    CBS Radio Affiliate Fires Talker Calling on Rather's Ouster
    September 18, 2004 05:50:01 EDT
    In yet another example of tolerance and diversity at CBS, NewsMax.com reports that a Seattle-based radio talk host has been fired for saying that Dan Rather should resign or be fired over Memogate.



    "Talk-show hosts have generally had a lot of independence in these kinds of issues," said the former host, Brian Maloney, who had hosted the "Brian Maloney Show" for three years. "Nobody's ever said, 'You can't criticize CBS News.'"

    KIRO is a CBS affiliate. E-mail the station manager (kiromanager@entercom.com) if you feel Maloney was unfairly censored for criticizing Rather. "


    I did e-mail them and told them what I thought. Apparently this station adheres to an old adage I thought only applied to military brass - "You can be forgiven any mistake. But you will never be forgiven for being right when the rest are wrong."

    CBS is corrupt to its very core.

    All I gotta say is "throw in the softner sheet, people, the media spin cycle is starting!"....saw a couple of journalists on O'Reilly...and wow, to paraphrase Ricky Ricardo ....those clowns have some 'splainin' to do!

    I'll tell you....Dan Rather had so much egg on his face tonight, if you put a side of pancakes and bacon next to him, you'd think he was the Grand Slam Breakfast at Denny's .....

    The media was caught with their pants down, with their hand in the cookie jar and their *BLEEP*s in the wringer all at the same time.....

    Do ya' think this will put to rest the myth of the "liberal controlled media"? :)

    Nope. That would require reason.
