News flash from Dan Rather: there are journalists out there who will run with dodgy sources to push a political agenda. Rather said this with a straight face to fellow real journalist Ed Schultz, who was silently summoned to the White House after the election for a hush-hush “hippie cabal” with other “progressive journalists.”

Rather is most shocked that politicians are taking information from the new Internet, which is complicating the traditional cozy relationship between the press and the government.
