CNN interviews Dan Rather on a regular basis to the bottom of “truth” in the Trump era, and it’s source of endless amusement. The newsman who was fired by CBS News in 2005 was back to sound another alarm about Trump and “truth” without any pangs of self-awareness whatsoever:
"Donald Trump is authoritarian. He wants people to believe that the only truth, the one and only truth comes from him. This is the hallmark, historically of authoritarian regimes." – Veteran news anchor Dan Rather https://t.co/u714Ewpnn0

Is anybody except CNN buying a “truth” lecture from that guy?
Dear CNN: You added a worm to your Facts apple… https://t.co/ipAIbaACxL

LOL. Well, we know where the truth doesn’t come from!

It's almost as if you guys put anyone on as long as they stick to the narrative you want to push. #WhyWeHateYou
