Dan Rather proposes the media should not only be in the pocket of the Obama administration but should now be digging into the pockets of the American taxpayer.
As if the relationship between the Obama Administration and the news media weren’t cozy enough already, former “CBS Evening News” anchor Dan Rather is calling on President Obama to “make recommendations” for the media on how to survive the economic downturn.
The media outlets that are failing financially are failing to be relevant.
According to the story, Rather said “corporate and political influence” on newsrooms had damaged the industry and was cause for concern.
…and a government bailout from the government will have no strings attached, right Dan?
PS Since when did Dan Rather get his credibility back?
