Dan Rather: Government Influencing Newsrooms

Dan Rather said Thursday that the undue influence of the government and large corporations over newsrooms spurred his decision to file a $70 million lawsuit against CBS and its former parent company.

"Somebody, sometime has got to take a stand and say democracy cannot survive, much less thrive with the level of big corporate and big government interference and intimidation in news," he said on CNN's "Larry King Live."

Fascism is defined as the collusion of corporations & government, run by a dictator, who suppresses opposition through terror & censorship, which is EXACTLY what plagues the USA!
Mussolini was the last Fascist leader, who was shot & hung upside down, in town square, displayed to all the people who he betrayed.

How disingenuous. Dan Rather after an entire career and so long after being fired only now speaks out. Thank you Dan for your sincere efforts in reporting only unbiased facts to the American public your entire career. The American people are certainly indebted to mainstream media, including you and CBS, for keeping them informed and knowledgeable so liberty can flourish. What a crock. Dan Rather is part of the problem. His only interest is financial. He is only looking for a nice payday like Don Imus just had at CBS’s expense. Dan Rather is nothing more than a copycat disgruntled former employee. Now do you want to know how I really feel?
