Dan Rather Makes Some Colorful Points About Election Coverage

Nov 5, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Dan Rather didn’t much care for election night coverage he saw and he found a few choice metaphors to describe it, Politico reports.

The former CBS anchorman, now anchor and managing editor of "Dan Rather Reports" on HDNet, told Politico, "So much of what passed for political coverage last night was like watching a manure spreader in a windstorm.” He added: “Much of it was just a constant stream of highly partisan political message points. Thoughtful analysis was as rare as a golden-fronted bowerbird."

  1. Using colorful language always gets you quoted. Dan’s right, though. So much crap blowing in a hot wind. The line between opinion and factual news is so blurry we can’t see squat.
