If anything we should name Dan Rather the "Father of Fake news".

I don't know why you have trouble seeing that.
Did you criticize previous Presidents for watching sport on television?
Did you criticize previous Presidents for eating dinner for a minute longer than you deemed necessary?
Did you criticize previous Presidents for walking slow instead of fast?
I felt that Obama walked a little too slow at times.
Again, this is the same as tweeting, its like 20 seconds....
And BTW most of Trump's tweets are regarding political events, policy and political opinion, anyway.
For him to deviate and tweet something about a tv personality is no different to Obama looking at the NBA scores....
I don't know why you have trouble seeing that.

Lots of us LOVE the effects of tRump's childish irrational tweets.

And this week, he talks to his boss.

Let's be clear about Rather: He used a faked source that was not vetted properly about George W. Bush. I would bet money it was planted by a GOP operative at the behest of Karl Rove. Once the fake source was exposed the story was killed and instead became about Rather, but the facts were still true: George W. Bush ducked service in Vietnam by joining the National Guard, not showing up for service and having his C.O. write up a paper relieving him from service because of his powerful daddy.

Rather is a fantastic journalist who was martyred by Karl Rove and his gang of tricksters. And yes, they have a long history of this, Rove used dirty tricks since the 1970's (Watch "Bush's Brain" for more info on Rove)

Martyred, wow! You folks are all-in on the conspiracy crazies.

Dan Rather blew up his own career...the jackass did it all to himself. Guys like Rather have massive egos, they can't be content being well known journalists. They all need to be Woodward or Bernstein, they need to be famous. They need to go down in history. They need to take out a president or presidential candidate and they don't care how they do it. "Fantastic journalists" don't get suckered and humiliated the way Rather did. Dan Rather is a joke.

Dan Rather is a perfect example for all the insanity in the MSM right now. Everyone is throwing away their credibility to promote a lie created by Democrats.

You condemn Rather's so-called 'lies" and you defend Trump's lies.

Nothing new here.

I know! Maybe Trump will be awarded a Nobel Peace Prize, like 0bama!

Dan Rather Lectures Media On 'Lying.' Yes, Really. | Daily Wire

Brian Williams, the female reporter from Rolling Stone....too many others to name. We should put trust in these guys as honest reporters?

We should put the country in the hands of a lying putz who claimed to have seen "thousands and thousands" celebrating the 9/11 attacks in the streets of Jersey City? We should putz the country in the hands of a narcissistic putz who has so little respect for the veterans of his generation that he compared his 'struggles' to avoid getting the clap with their service in Vietnam?

Do you complain about a President using time to eat breakfast, lunch and tea?
What about using the toilet?
What about brushing his teeth?
What about talking to his son or daughter?
The fact that Trump tweets is not the problem....The problem is what he tweets....

Karl Rove, Lee Attwater, ... Republicans have a long line of "tricksters" if that's what you want to call them.

Bush Jr. ducked Vietnam by joining the National Guard and then didn't even do much of that.

This was a set-up to smear Rather and they're still working at it.
