Somewhere along the line, Dan Rather lost whatever was left of his shame, because despite having zero credibility on anything, he seems to be weighing in on just about everything these days.
Yesterday afternoon, he made this bold prediction:

When you think about it, it’s really no wonder Jack dug Rather’s tweet. After all, like Rather, he evidently has no self-awareness whatsoever.

Pssst! Can we give you a piece of advice, Jack? If you want to curb the spread of misinformation, you can start by not pimping Dan Effing Rather.
