From Anchor To Albatross, Propaganda Pimp Rather Departs By Alan Stang


By: Alan Stang

Like the men he most admires – Clinton, Castro, Saddam Hussein, etc. – Dan Rather has lied all his life. He is a compulsive liar, a psychopath, for whom lying is a way of life. For just one example, he claims he was a U.S. Marine. In fact, he couldn’t get through boot camp. He was a "Marine" for four months. He was discharged on May 11, 1954 as "medically unfit."

He and the Communist Broadcasting System are still unrepentant. "You can't do fiercely independent reporting and expect that everybody's going to love you." He is leaving because his lies have put his ratings in the toilet. Starting in March he will spew them exclusively for Sixty Minutes.

I have a constructive suggestion about his successor. According to a recent poll of people in their twenties, Jon Stewart, of Comedy Central’s Daily Show, has more credibility than propaganda pimp Blather. Why not take advantage of it by hiring Stewart to replace him?

Coming from the outside, Stewart isn’t tainted, and would make the CBS Evening News even funnier than it is now. This would also solve the problem of having to wonder whether a particular story is phony. No investigations would be needed. We would know the documents were forged.

Dan was the man for twenty-four years. His predecessor, Walter Cronkite, was the "most trusted newsman in America." How do we know that? Because CBS said so. Cronkite is of course a world government traitor. During the war in Vietnam, he created such a distorted impression of what was happening there that returning veterans didn’t recognize the war he was talking about.

In the 1968 Tet Offensive, the Vietcong finally quit hiding in the jungle and went nose to nose with the U.S. military. So completely did our military destroy them that the Vietcong disappeared; they never again were a fighting force. That was why the North Vietnamese had to take over.

But returning Tet veterans were flabbergasted to discover that, because of Cronkite and the Communist Broadcasting System, among others, many, if not most, Americans believed we had lost Tet. Cronkite’s allegiance is to the Communist UN, not to the United States. This means that for almost half a century the CBS Evening News has been run by liars dedicated to the destruction of the United States. Dan Rather is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, the Marxist propaganda gang whose goal is a totalitarian Socialist world government in which our country would be submerged.

From time to time, his front men have denied that Dan belongs to the C.F.R., so how do we know? We know because the C.F.R. says he is a member. Remember that like his hero Clinton, he lies even when he doesn’t need to, because it is such fun when his lies tear America down.

From the beginning, his career has not been the news; it has been Dan Rather, Dan Rather interviewing "President" Saddam, Dan Rather interviewing "President" Castro, etc, Dan Rather on the scene in Afghanistan. Because he is a world government traitor, Blather showed more respect in those sickening interviews than he ever did interviewing an American Republican.

Blather has actually said that he consults regularly with the ghost of Edward R. Murrow in the halls of CBS after everyone goes home. "Ed Murrow's ghost is here. I've seen him and talked to him on the third floor of this building many times late at night. And I can tell you that he's watching over us." This is easy to believe because Murrow was an earlier version of Blather as CBS anchor and it may well prove that Blather is even crazier than we thought.

How likely is it that the perennial CBS tilt is an accident and that the Communist Broadcasting System will change? Remember Mary Mapes? She is Blather’s producer, who worked on the phony Bush "documents" for five years at Sixty Minutes. Her own father has publicly decried her predatory feminism. As this commentary goes to press, she is still at Sixty Minutes, where Blather says he will now spend all his time.

Remember that Sixty Minutes is the home of sleazy puke Mike Wallace. A while back, at a journalistic ethics seminar, someone asked Mike if he would warn the commander of a Marine Corps unit about to walk into an ambush. No, the skunk replied. Warning them would neutralize my impartiality.

So it’s not only about Dan; it’s also about Mike. His "impartiality" is more important than the lives of our Marines. It means in effect that he is loyal to our enemies. When I wrote the Mike Wallace Interview, we argued all the time. Guess which side the skunk always took.

Remember that most of the people who run CBS belong to both the C.F.R. and David Rockefeller’s Trilateral Commission, its foreign ministry. They attend secret meetings of the Bilderbergers, where policy that governs your life and property is imposed – but they keep it secret. There are no Sixty Minutes exposés of illicit power.

Of course this is true of all the networks, which gave Propaganda Pimp Dan unqualified support. For instance, somebody on a panel said that the bloggers had decisively influenced reporting on Election Day. New NBC anchor Brian Williams waved that away. The bloggers, says Brian, are "self-styled journalists" who are "on an equal footing with someone in a bathroom with a modem."

Yes, maybe that’s where they were, but it was the bloggers who brought Blather down. Consider that, without them, Blather would have gotten away with it, as he has for so long. The lie would probably have decisively influenced the election, as it was designed to do. Blather would still be where he was.

Remember that NBC’s Today Show employs Katie Kook. And I recall that during the Vietnam War NBC’s Frank McGee was interviewing Georgie Jessel on that show. Jessel was a nationally famous comedian known as Mr. Toastmaster. He had just returned from the Nam where he entertained the troops. So he quite naturally referred to the New York Times as "Pravda." McGee took a break and when he returned Jessel was gone.

Another of Dan’s supporters is Fox’s spinmeister Bill O’Reilly, who says, "Rather was slimed" by people who accused him of deliberately using the phony "documents." Isn’t O’Reilly supposed to be a "conservative?" Was he just putting himself in the running to sit in Rather’s chair? O’Reilly is as real as a one-dollar bill.

Only Peter Jennings of the big three remains. He became an American citizen only last year but still is a foreigner at heart and retains his Canadian citizenship in case he needs to flee. What with Blather’s lateral shift and the departure of Brokaw – whose main accomplishment was to prove that here in America a man with a speech impediment can become a network anchor – the question naturally arises of where the media now stand. Who’s whose these days?

Until relatively recently, the three networks enjoyed a monopoly on the news, along with a few newspapers like the New York Times. My colleagues and I were the loyal opposition. The conspiracy for world government, which runs the show, while utterly insane is, like many lunatics, also eminently realistic.

The conspirators know they will meet opposition, and that the closer they come to their goal – total dictatorship – the more obvious it will become, and the more opposition they will face. They know they can’t wish it away. So what do they do? Enter the most important Communist tool: dialectical materialism.

They create their own opposition, so they can manage it. Et voilà! Here come Shallow Sean, Laughing Laura and Talent on Loan From the Republicrud National Committee, etc. So now we have the left Communist media, CBS, etc., and the right Communist media, Republicrud Zombie Talk Radio.

Notice how well the latter has done its job. Any expression of "disloyalty," meaning disagreement with the policies of covert Communist Bush, is sure to arouse screaming hatred from zombie listeners to talk radio that make Michael Moore’s preposterous accusations feel like accolades.

The right Communist media teach blind – even fanatic – obedience to government. Isn’t that what we as "conservatives" used to be fighting? As my colleagues and I have been warning for many years, the conspiracy for world government has tricked America into demanding its own enslavement.
