Dan Rather apparently forgot about his own troubled past when covering presidents when he decided to call President Trump’s media criticism something “straight out of Orwell.”

During an interview with CNN’s Don Lemon, Rather called Trump out for being an authoritarian and wanting people to believe that the truth comes from him.
Maybe if the media didn’t constantly put out blatantly false stories and inaccurate statements, this wouldn’t be an issue. https://t.co/qBWIG65mJD

Let’s just continue to forget the targeting of James Rosen happened under Obama. https://t.co/bQc9cmn9Es

Dan Rather made up a fake story about GW Air National Guard service and got caught. A journalist who lies & doesn't report facts is NO journalist. Quoting him is irresponsible. https://t.co/R6OQLh8bnF

The media would like for Americans to put their sole trust in them as the arbiters of truth, but Rather’s own history shows that they cannot be trusted.
They can’t stand the fact that through social media, Trump gets to communicate directly with the American people, who can then decide for themselves what to think.
