Dan Rather's Reality Recedes. THE WRATH OF SOUR GRAPES
'Victim of the Rightwing'

by Little Baby Ginn & Mondoreb

Sept. 21, 2007 - In parts, it reads like a political thriller, with a cast of “right-wing” hit men out to force a powerful journalist to heel. Or a tale of corporate deceit, in which Machiavellian suits sacrifice their own to cozy up to the president of the United States. Or a behind-the-scenes saga of a network news division assembling a story that could help unseat an incumbent president at the polls.
Yawn. Dan's a victim, as usual. Ho-hum.

One of the saddest things, Dan seems to feel, is that CBS fired him the day after Bush's re-election. Those bastards!
The complaint details horrors no sane meglomaniacal anchorman should have to endure. CBS gave him few assignments! Little staff! Very little air time!
So now CBS must prove that the documents that Dan Rather waved in front of the nation barely a month before the 2004 election were false. And Dan Rather will have to prove that he's not a whiny foot-stomper. This whole affair is unseemly. It's as if the cowardly Lion sued the Wizard of Oz.

Courage, Dan, courage.
