They walk among us

Well, the latest news off Drudge says that anchormen Tom Brokaw and Peter Jennings are supporting Dan Rather through the latest scandal in which CBS is involved. As if the whole world didn't know the left leaning bias of Brokaw and Jennings. Why wouldn't they defend their comrade? It's one thing to support him, but to defend his actions and give some of the quotes these guys did is downright ridiculous and hypocritical.

Brokaw, for example, was quoted as saying: "What I think is highly inappropriate is what going on across the Internet, a kind of political jihad ... that is quite outrageous." What's outrageous is a few things: 1. That CBS ever aired the story. 2. That CBS tried to cover it's tracks and still has yet to take complete responsibility for it, and 3. That Brokaw would even use the word "jihad" in this context. What he's unhappy with is the truth being found out. If it isn't obvious to all, these guys have no respect for ordinary Americans. Or Americans who aren't completely engrossed by their politics. If they respected us, they'd give us the truth, no matter the consequence. But they don't think we're capable of thinking on our own, hence they tell us what to think.

Jennings piped in, not emotionally but ever so hypocritically, "I don't think you ever judge a man by only one event in his career." Interesting. Because even if the Guard documents were real, wouldn't that be exactly what you all were doing to George W. Bush? I know, it's an unfair question, and I'm confusing you with the facts, but I just thought I'd throw that one out there.

Oy, the left really can be so irritating with it's "almost truths." Let me tell you boys, the American public is getting quite tired of your shenanigans, and if I'm not mistaken, your ratings reflect that.
