I see your Rather and raise you Sean Hannity who apparently is in the TrumpCo entourage. There's bias and then there's gone off the deep and making up stuff.

I don't do Cable which is 95% BS and I don't listen to Sean Hannity. But I will play your little game, I see you Sean Hannity and raise you Homophobe Joy Reed.

Uh... Obamacare had 18-months of hearings before being passed. The GOP repeat and not replace had ONE DAY of actually being in the hands of Senators.

What does this have to do with what I was posting about. The subverting our democracy with lies and not even voting on the Iran deal in the Senate.

Let's do this, you do a summary on how Obamacare came about and then I'll do a summary.

I just happened across it on imgur and thought it was a pertinent quote. But go ahead and strawman Dan Rather than actually comment on anything real.

Rather is correct network news is all fluff and void of investigative reporting.

Of course the media was a useful tool helping the Obama gang subvert our democracy.

Mr. Rhoades whose brother David is President of CBS news said the following regarding the spin on the Iran deal.

When I asked whether the prospect of this same kind of far-reaching spin campaign being run by a different administration is something that scares him, he admitted that it does. “I mean, I’d prefer a sober, reasoned public debate, after which members of Congress reflect and take a vote,” he said, shrugging. “But that’s impossible.”

Ned Price, Rhodes’s assistant, gave me a primer on how it’s done. The easiest way for the White House to shape the news, he explained, is from the briefing podiums, each of which has its own dedicated press corps. “But then there are sort of these force multipliers,” he said, adding, “We have our compadres, I will reach out to a couple people, and you know I wouldn’t want to name them — ”

“I can name them,” I said, ticking off a few names of prominent Washington reporters and columnists who often tweet in sync with White House messaging.

Price laughed. “I’ll say, ‘Hey, look, some people are spinning this narrative that this is a sign of American weakness,’ ” he continued, “but — ”

“In fact it’s a sign of strength!” I said, chuckling.

“And I’ll give them some color,” Price continued, “and the next thing I know, lots of these guys are in the dot-com publishing space, and have huge Twitter followings, and they’ll be putting this message out on their own.”

Rather and his producer Mary Mapes (played by Cate Blanchett in Truth) aired a story that alleged that Bush went AWOL during his time in the Texas Air National Guard. The Bush administration charged that the documents used as the basis for the report were inauthentic, leading to an independent investigation that ultimately concluded that the piece disregarded “fundamental journalistic principles.” The documents were not, however, ever proved to be forgeries.

But hey... at least he did his time unlike Cadet Bonespurs.

Again, you and your source is wrong. Memos were proven to be frauds with rock solid facts. Of course if you dig deep you will find out all of this was covered up to protect CBS.

I had told Lanpher that the memos were frauds and explained why in great and extensive detail. I went into the fatal OETR issue, the use of Air Force serial numbers years after they had been replaced by Social Security numbers, the invalidity of an order demanding Bush take a physical, and others. I even gave him the names of seven other Guardsmen who worked with Killian every day.
From my follow-up conversations with them and from the report, only one was contacted. Only eight Guardsmen total were interviewed by this panel, and four of them were subjects quoted in the “60 Minutes” show. At that point, Lanpher had enough information to determine the memos to be frauds and implicate CBS.
Nope. The final report was condescendingly dismissive of our testimony, stating, “… the concerns raised by these former Guardsmen in the end may be simply different views of events[.]” No, they were indisputable facts backed up by evidence.

How America's Largest Local TV Owner Turned Its News Anchors Into Soldiers In Trump's War On The Media

tldr: constant hue and crying about fake news while right-wing media is in fact weaponized.

The article you posted forgot to include that all major networks have must runs. As pointed out by Sharly Attkinson of the best Sunday Show Full Measure,
"There’s certainly room for debate over “Must Runs” and their content, whether it’s Sinclair –or ABC, NBC, CBS or FOX. But to cast Sinclair as some sort of unique offenders is inaccurate and unfair".

The article states Sinclair required in 2004 of affiliates to air anti-John Kerry propaganda. Amazing that they forgot to include the false with doctored documents story Dan Rather did on George Bush in the National Guard, which he got his ass fired over.

Pretty rich you would post Rather comments from yesterday. You really need to do better research before you post your biased articles.
