Dan Rather joined a panel discussion on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” to discuss the dangers of the powerful platform that President Donald Trump has.

(odd how sudden this awareness of presidential platforms has become)

“Iconic broadcaster Dan Rather.”

So wait, during this conversation, Rather chides Trump for not “keeping up” (noting his age), and then says Trump is cunning and knows exactly what he is doing.

Which is it, Dan?

Poor Democrats never can get a break with the media.

The truth is that a manure spreader in a windstorm is a really appropriate analogy for the kinds of shameless reporting that CNN and other networks will do in order to tarnish conservatives.

Like teenage kids.

The reason Trump got elected and still has the support he does is because of his ability, through social media or other means, to usurp the media’s stranglehold on information and communicate directly with the American people.

Dan Rather knows this.

CNN knows this.

Much of the mainstream media know this.

And they can’t stand it.
