The crusade against ‘Fake News’ is on. And JUST GUESS who’s coming back to fight it.
Yes, that is Dan Rather.
Of Rathergate fame.
And Politico was effusive with its praise of Rather and his ‘journalistic integrity’.
Politico was practically giddy with excitement:
Last fall, he debuted a weekly SiriusXM radio hour called “Dan Rather’s America,” and he’s a regular with hits on mainstream cable—a bigger platform than he has with AXS TV, for which he did “Dan Rather Reports” from 2006 to 2013 and now hosts “The Big Interview.” But the improbable, white-hot hub of his comeback is Facebook. Rather’s personal page has more than 2 million likes, his “News and Guts” page has another million-plus, and his posts are seen, shared and read by millions more. On average, “News and Guts” gets more likes, comments and shares per post than BuzzFeed, USA Today or CNN.
Making a comeback at 85!
The Leftists are thrilled!
You know what else they’re thrilled about?
His lock-step with the other anti-Trump sentiments:
Rather told Politico he’s been contemplating Adolf Hitler recently, adding, “And I’m not comparing Trump to Hitler, but … ” He said, “However you feel about Trump personally, to have this kind of chaos, bordering on havoc, with a new president coming in—that’s something new, and very, very dangerous.”
Somebody’s really going to put him to the test … a real threat. With all this chaos, and frankly bullshit, swirling around, there’s some question that he can appear on television and rally the national consensus to meet that threat. Now, I hope it doesn’t happen, but history teaches us that something along that vein will happen … and if the president appeared on television and said, you know, ‘”My fellow Americans, we’re in peril, and I have to mount, have to put the country in war,” I think it would be very difficult for him to persuade people. Because wait a minute. This is an old technique. This is what authoritarian regimes always do. Solidify their domestic base. They conjure up a cause and—see where this is going?

The Left thinks that this is going to be the confrontation of the ages — this is the political opponent that Dan Rather was born to fight.
Against this guy?
Nope. No contest.
