Dan Rather ended his journalism career by pushing false reports about George W. Bush so it comes as no surprise that he detests Trump supporters. Still, urging the media to shame people for their political beliefs is despicable.
Dan Rather: Media Must Publicly Shame Donald Trump Supporters
Disgraced former CBS news anchor Dan Rather is out with a haughty statement on Facebook, urging all of his fellow news anchors and mainstream media editors to destroy Donald Trump and his supporters.
“This cannot be treated as just another outrageous moment in the campaign,” Rather said, referring to the Republican presidential nominee’s comments about defending the Second Amendment.
Rather appeared horrified by Trump’s comment, struggling to explain his shock.
“By any objective analysis, this is a new low and unprecedented in the history of American presidential politics,” he said.
Rather challenged the media to hold Trump accountable for his words, urging them to do more to try to shame his supporters.
“We will see whether major newscasts explain how grave and unprecedented this is and whether the headlines in tomorrow’s newspapers do it justice,” he said. “We will soon know whether anyone who has publicly supported Trump explains how they can continue to do.”
Hillary Clinton was investigated by the FBI and got away with things that would send any average citizen to jail but Trump supporters should be shamed? Right.
