Remember not long ago when Facebook said they would be working to combat the spread of “fake news” on the site?

LOL. So the guy who "broke" the biggest fake story of the decade and then blamed the victim of the fake story for the reason of him messing up, is the favorite news anchor of @facebook. And FB claims that it is serious in fighting fake news https://t.co/XwKIqtpNjQ

The Columbia Journalism Review does its best to cover for what caused Rather’s departure from CBS News:
"It was an unceremonious end, brought about by a flawed investigation…"

Also, CJR finds that “Rather has been especially popular with younger audiences on the platform, many of whom have no memory of him as a network anchor.”
That certainly helps explain things.
Because he makes up news stories against conservatives, kinda like Facebook #FakeNews
