Dan Rather asks Obama for help?

Has Dan Rather finally lost his marbles (did he ever have any to loose?) or is he just simply that simple and that naive.

When Rather asked the president to help the news industry, just what in the world did he have in mind and why in the world would anyone in the news business do such a thing. Having the government helping the media would be equivalent to having the government controlling the media. Wait! What am I saying, the government already controls the media.

Did Rather come up with this all by himself? Did someone put Rather up to this for some sinister reason? Man you could get a lot of mileage out of this one. I'll have to admit that the first thing that popped into my mind was that someone is going to use Rather as a patsy and further the governments control over the media in the name of saving it. Sound familiar? This tactic has worked many times in the past.

But then what do we know, we’re all just lowly US citizens who apparently needs big government to tell us what to do.
