‘Father of Fake News’ Dan Rather offers new slogan for Fox News and he really shouldn’t have

Perhaps, Dan Rather should refrain from preaching to others about the “truth.”

The disgraced former CBS News anchor took to Twitter in furtherance of the left’s insistence that there be no alternative voice to their prescribed political narratives, bashing Fox News, the sole major platform that offers a different perspective on the news of the day.

“Maybe a new slogan for Fox News should be: ‘For those who can’t handle the truth,'” Rather tweeted.”

What has Rather whipped into a frenzy is that Fox News refused to carry live Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s politically motivated January 6 select committee primetime dog and pony show Thursday evening — the network essentially refusing to air what amounts to a 2022 election infomercial for the Democratic Party.

The irony of Rather weighing on here is that he was booted from the CBS News anchor chair for airing a story that alleged that George W. Bush went AWOL during his time in the Texas Air National Guard. The Bush administration countered to insist that the documents Rather used as the basis for the report were inauthentic. An independent investigation ultimately concluded the report disregarded “fundamental journalistic principles.”

The 90-year-old former newsman would later claim that the story was true, adding that he just didn’t report on it “perfectly.”

Here are a few samples of responses to the story about the “Father of Fake News” from Twitter:
