During his hour-long keynote address at South by Southwest Interactive, Rather opined at length on the state of his profession, in which too many journalists have become lapdogs to power, rather than watchdogs.
“I do not exclude myself from this criticism… By and large, so many journalists–there are notable exceptions–have adopted the go-along-to-get-along (attitude),” he said.
So, because of this “access game,” journalism has degenerated into a “very perilous state,” he said in response to a question from his on-stage interviewer, FireDogLake.com writer Jane Hamsher.
Woah…slow down Dan Rather…don’t let the cat out of the bag just yet! Many Americans mistakenly believe that the media does it’s job…don’t get them all alert to the truth of the matter which is that the majority of journalists are PUSSIES WITH PRESS PASSES who are hoping to appease their corporate masters, shamelessly inflate their egos and bank accounts, and have no intention of telling the American people the truth! How dare you, Dan Rather? ALERT TED KOPPEL!!!!
