In a Sunday segment on so-called “Reliable Sources”, media janitor and host Brian Stelter proved how much of a clown show CNN was by trotting out disgraced journalist Dan Rather to talk about, of all things: why the “truth still matters.” At the same time, Stelter wanted Rather to talk about how the “truth is closing in” on President Trump, and how the President apparently runs a cult.
“So let's talk more about the truth and why it matters and what's been happening in the impeachment inquiry coverage,” Stelter proclaimed as he introduced his panel of liberal journalists, which included the washed-up Rather, who he sucked up to: “And I’ve got to start with you Dan because you are our senior correspondent today. You’ve been watching history, along with the rest of us. Do you feel that anything changed after these first two days of televised hearings?”
Rather was adamant that “one thing has changed” during the Democratic-led impeachment hearings. “It's becoming increasingly apparent that truth is closing in. Truth does matter,” he said.
Someone should really tell Stelter that Rather was fired from CBS News because he rode a fake news story about President George W. Bush to the destruction of his career. But considering how often Stelter invites the serial liar on, it’s clear he’s trying to help rehabilitate Rather’s image. Rather still claims his lies about Bush were true.
