Here‘s an impressive collection of Dan Rather quotes throughout the years.
As I read them, I wonder why I debate with anyone about media bias. Certainly, the debate on Dan Rather should be put to rest. It’s clear that this objective reporter has consistently allowed his political beliefs to permeate his news coverage.
And you know what, that’s fine. But we (journalists and those who teach journalism) should quit pretending that he was ever “objective.” That’s all I ask.
Don’t forget that the most openly biased of the three network anchors was also the the least watched. Viewers aren’t stupid.
