June 21st, 2021 2:55 PM

Some journalists really have no sense of irony. And Dan Rather is one of them.

November 13th, 2020 12:00 PM

After the 2000 Presidential election, TV journalists indulged losing candidate Al Gore’s protracted attempts to overturn the election, treating his lawsuits and requested recounts with great respect.

FLASHBACK: Rather Thought You Can Lie A Lot and Be 'Honest'

May 16th, 2020 12:15 PM
Though the term fake news has only become popular in the Trump era, deceptive, dishonest liberal journalists are not new.

Column: Press Briefings and Ego Bruisings

March 25th, 2020 6:44 AM
