George Neumayr skewers Dan Rather's whining about the "new journalism order":
That Rather is fighting back tears these days is due to the shock of ending his career on a forgery ferreted out by the new journalistic order, and the unwillingness of CBS to back him up on the bogus report. As far as I know, he still hasn't disclaimed the forgery; O.J.-like, he is apparently still in search of letters confirming the "core truth" of his story. Through his tears, he is in effect saying to CBS: you guys didn't check my work for decades. Then you sideline me because of the complaints of some right-wing bloggers and media outlets?
