Dan Rather: Proud Member of "A Sort of Magical Mystical Kingdom of Journalistic Knights"

Kind of like metrosexual Yuppie Jedi, I suppose. Plus, prone to fucking up, big-time.

From the Corner:

MRC's Brent Baker was one of the few, the proud who watched Dan Rather being interviewed by Tina Brown in a session aired Sunday night on CNBC.


[B]rown wanted to know: "What are the realistic chances that you're going to be able to do a story that really shakes and rattles the Bush administration?"

Rather maintained they are "excellent" since "CBS News has a culture, has a history that those of us who work here, it's very real -- that we see it as a sort of magical mystical kingdom of journalistic knights."

At least Rather was aware enough to add: "And I know I can mentally hear people rolling their eyes. That's the way we feel."

Did you mentally hear me raking my face with fish-hooks?

Isn't it funny how lately the liberals in the media have just been confirming everything we've said about them for years? It seems like they're collectively deciding that truth is the only remaining defense.

Thankfully. 30 years too late, but whatever.

I've long maintained the media considers themselves the Keeper of the Eternal Flame, better than you (they went to j-school! They work in the media!) and having more important opinions on... well, everything, really.

Dan Rather just confirmed it. They consider themselves a sort of priesthood of knights errant, roaming the despoiled countryside, looking for dragons to slay to protect (who else?) "the little people."

Thanks to Slublog.

But That's Not All! Order Now And You'll Also Get a Self-Aggrandizing Quote From BBC C***S***ers!

Get the fuck over yourselves, guys:

Thousands of British Broadcasting Corp. journalists and technicians staged a 24-hour strike over proposed job cuts Monday, severely disrupting radio and TV programs.

The stoppage, one of the biggest in the BBC's recent history, prevented flagship morning news program "Today" from broadcasting on Radio 4. The show was replaced by prerecorded programs with only brief news bulletins.


"The savage cuts proposed will damage programming as well as the organization and will unravel British broadcasting traditions," said Mike Smallwood, national officer of the Amicus union.

"The BBC is a unifying British institution which acts as the nation's conscience, but these redundancies will damage the U.K. at its core."

They think they all dat, but they ain'.

You know who's a unifying institution which acts as the nation's conscience?


That's who.

Thanks to Irwin.
