Bill O'Reilly Defends Rather

Bill O’Reilly says Dan Rather was slimed by the Internet in this New York Daily News editorial. Given his recent sex scandal troubles, the only thing I could think of to say to O’Reilly is, “project much?”

The underlying subtext in O’Reilly’s lame defense of Rather (which conveniently ignores every fact of the story) is the drubbing O’Reilly’s took on the Internet as the result of Loofahgate.

It’s not the mistake that did Rather in – though it was a doozy; it was the cover-up and incredulous stonewalling…

Update: RatherBiased reports that the Rather resignation came after an in-progress of the independent report on Rathergate was delivered to CBS management.
