I'm not a fan of Dan Rather. He's a Murrow protege. He's the former patriarch of the Liberal Media. His infamous outser was proof that the blogosphere can take on the media, planting the seeds for our inevitable violent overthrow of the MSM. And so I wish I could share in the schadenfreude of my Republican comrades in laughing at Gunga Dan embarrassing himself on a national scale by suing CBS in some sort of desperate plea for attention. But I just can't. In fact I somewhat sympathetic for the guy, and as a conservative, I didn't even know I could feel sympathy. Those CBS News guys can be real tough bastards. They will chew you up and spit you out and suddenly the whole public's against you. They'll invite you on, give you some coffee, but make no mistake: they will go after you. Seriously, don't fuck with CBS.
