Said Rather on Stewart’s Daily Show, "I know that it's widely believed that CBS, NBC, ABC -- chock full of liberals. Not true. What it's chock full of are people who wanted to give honest news, straightforward news, and voted both ways in many elections.” Rather added, “Frequently what happened, people who were described as conservatives want to say, 'I worked at CBS News, and you know, almost everybody there was liberal.' What they really mean is not everybody there agreed with them all the time. This is a sham. It's a camouflage."
Media Research Center Vice President of Research Brent Baker explains our pick: “Dan Rather is as delusional as ever. He is blind to liberal media bias, bias so obvious and near-universally accepted that even liberal gadfly Jon Stewart was surprised by Rather's denial. The only ‘sham’ is Rather seeing himself as a journalist worthy of respect.”
