Excerpt from The Daily Wire
Written by Aaron Bandler
Former CBS News anchor Dan Rather, the man who epitomizes fake news, seriously lectured the media on calling out lies.
Rather was irked by Wall Street Journal editor-in-chief Gerard Baker saying on NBC's Meet The Press that journalists should use the word "lie" with caution when it comes to vetting President-elect Donald Trump's statements.
"'Lie' implies much more than just saying something that's false," Baker said. "It implies a deliberate intent to mislead."
Baker went on to say that objective news reporting is based on allowing readers to come to their own conclusions after reporting on Trump's statements rather than "ascribing a moral intent, as it were, to someone by saying that they’ve lied."
Rather ranted about Baker's statements in a Facebook post.
