II) CBS News Make Over

I see with consternation and sadness that Dan Rather is throwing in the towel at CBS once and for all. I hadn’t realized how old Dan is until all the raucous over his tenure had come up lately. Seventy-four has even got Paul McCartney beat. Frankly, I think Dan got a raw deal in the Memo-gate affair. In reality, I imagine the allegations against Dubya were absolutely fair and correct.

In a way, Dan Rather reminds me a little bit of Pete Rose. Charlie Hustle they called him, and hustle Dan did. They said Pete bet on baseball, and he said he didn’t, whether he did or not. The fact is you can’t bet on something that’s already rigged. So, Charlie Hustle’s I and II, both go down in my book as actually being a cut above the rest, not as fading out in shame and disgrace. Sad it is though, that Dan leaves the anchor post on CBS ultimately giving way for something called a “Katie Couric” to come on board.

I understand she is female and that begs the question? Where will the white men go now that the “white man’s network” is being run by a woman? I mean really. The colored folks have got the NAACP in their corner, black folks have got BET, lesbians have got Ellen (thanks to CBS), soccer mom’s have got Martha, bitches have got Anne Coulter, and Gay men have got Matt Drudge…what’s a white man to do for news now?

My humble opinion is that Howard Stern is right in saying Les Moonves is a total screw-up, and I predict that CBS will ultimately suffer for supporting feminism, even it is white, at a time when the tide is actually beginning to turn back to a more practical social model. Ambitious women have become untoward in many ways, and many “successful” women have finally realized their own best course is in being a woman, making babies, and taking care of the overall domestic wellbeing of family and home.

My own choice, if Bob Schieffer is also ready to do something else, was John Roberts. What a total screw-up Moonves is. John Roberts was really just the right fit, and they blew him off and let him go.

“Even if it is white,” I say in regard to CBS’s support of feminism. And, you can’t really help but notice they chose a white woman over a black man. Russ Mitchell would have been a fine choice to anchor The CBS Evening News, but they ditched him too. As a man, I’m sure I’m not the only one who noticed this obvious snub, and I doubt CBS will go unscathed for their faux pas.

    Sheriff, is you hungry?

    The big red marches on in the United States. A federal court has struck down the Miranda ruling that requires an officer to tell the individual under arrest that they have rights. Primarily at issue is the right to remain silent until you have consultation with an attorney. The court has argued that as long […]

    Uncle Fascist Wants YOU!

    Recently Alabama Senator Arthur Orr followed suit with other fascist socialists to require “restrictions” on how welfare recipients can spend the money. Well, no one thinks it’s a good idea to squander money on something frivolous. But, there are several problems with the approach.To begin with, there is a process of qualification that must be […]

    Bruce Askins: Very ‘Portant Nut

    It now appears that Bruce was looking forward to the conspiracy event, of which I had no knowledge, the Lee Bus crash, and wanted to derail my candidacy in order to paint me into a villainous box. He would be the hero, or the anti-hero, depending on your moral and ethical take on the conspiracy and blood sport. He must have been thinking, if he could only take the reigns he would get credit in the Butler vs. Lee “game.” Of course, conspiracy to commit murder is not a game, and while I am fully aware there are those who get a kick and a chuckle out of such things, I am not, have never been, and would never want there to be room for me among those barbaric cretins.

    The McBoom Heard Around The World

    Unlike The Cannon Ball Run, which almost certainly indicates prescient knowledge by city planners on some level (of the impending Lee High Bus Massacre) this street was probably named before the massacre was orchestrated… maybe. Unfortunately, it does appear that the reflective concept ultimately provided inspiration to extend the event.

    Eric Parker – Madison, Alabama Police Officer | Mistrial, Miscarriage, Gangland Thug

    In Eric Parker’s trial, one or more moron’s refused to convict what was obvious at face value. Eric Parker used excessive and unnecessary force leaving the Indian Grandpa partially paralyzed. It is impossible to understand how a rational person could not find him guilty. Unfortunately, there are idiots who believe that their personal agenda is more important than legitimate due process.

    William Eric Freeman

    I do remember thinking that the “consequence” for revealing “classified” information seemed a little distant and out of context. There certainly wasn’t anything I could do, I didn’t know the person, didn’t know if the dossier was just a joke done in poor taste, or a metaphor for something I didn’t yet understand, or whether it could be taken seriously at all. And, since I was the only one in the classroom who saw the material, there was no temptation to discuss the contents with the teacher who showed she wanted none of it, or the other students, which probably would have deemed my assertions unbelievable anyway, thereby making me a fool in the eyes of my fourth grade peers.
