Twitter hit by mother of all fake news bombs as CNN's Brian Stelter links to Dan Rather's Facebook page

After what seemed like months of back-and-forth between President Trump and CNN over fake news and “violent” wrestling GIFs, the New York Times went and surprised everyone Monday night with one of those Trump-Russia bombshells everyone had come to expect. Sure, the sourcing was anonymous, but it turns out the story was solid.

For almost a full day there, it seemed as if the news media had remembered its core mission: to rid America of its elected president after failing to prevent said election. And speaking of journalists who failed to prevent an election, look who popped up just as the country was digesting some real news:

Maybe it’s just us, but we don’t see why anyone would lend credibility to any sentence that starts with “Dan Rather ….” Why CNN’s Brian Stelter of all people thought Rather’s Facebook page was attaching his name to escapes us completely.

You see, now that Rather is just another ordinary American person watching the news with the rest of us, he demands to know what’s going on. But does he want the “fake but accurate” version he tried to push off on the rest of us, or does he really want to know what’s going on?

Not that it helps CNN’s case any, but MSNBC was happy to give Rather some airtime. Maybe someone there can clue him in.

Brian Williams landed a gig — maybe that was a test run to see if the network could handle the stress of rehabilitating Rather’s image.
