"This Just In-Go to Hell!

Dan Rather announced that his "retirement" has nothing to do with his reporting of a fake, biased story. It's something he was PLANNING on doing, he said, and he's looking forward to being a "full-time" investigative reporter on 60 Minutes II. Sure, Rather WANTED to retire a year BEFORE he hit 25 years at the anchor desk at CBS. And I'm queen of the space Unicorns.

In truth, this is nothing more than an effort by CBS and Rather to try and salvage the career of one of the worst anchors ever to sit behind a desk. Rather disgraced the name of real journalists with his petty stonewalling, his refusal to admit that his story was crap, and his eventual, half-hearthed "apology" that came 10 days after the report was aired, and 9 days after it was already thuroughly discredited. Rather must not be allowed to retire early. He must be punished. Edward R. Murrow is doing 360's in his grave. As RatherGate.com says,this is NOT a victory. Rather must not be allowed to go on 60 Minutes II. He should be hounded by outraged Americans through the streets until the Monster is cornered in a windmill and the villagers torch it and it burns to the ground. Metaphorically speaking of course.
