Sullivan on his game

Sullivan may despise President Bush, but he effing hates media dishonesty. Not surprisingly, CBS and Dan Rather are squarely in his sights. Excerpts:

KITTY: Mike Crowley has the goods on Kelley. I think of her as a slightly less reliable National Enquirer. Which puts her one step above CBS News.


RATHER IS GOING DOWN: This new story seems to me to show reckless indifference to the truth in the pursuit of political pay-dirt. Honestly, you can't make this stuff up. If a couple of years back, someone had predicted that a) Howell Raines would be brought down by a fabricating affirmative action hire; b) the BBC would lose its director-general because of shoddy anti-war propaganda tarted up as journalism; and c) that Dan Rather would flame out over forged documents designed to wreak revenge on the Bush family; then I would think it was Brent Bozell having a wet dream. But it's all true. Bernie Goldberg, pour yourself a drink. Eric Alterman, just go home and cry.

I think will quietly resume his work, though with less credibility his viewship will go down, and at the end of the year, he'll announce his retirement.

He's had it. Finito, Capisce?
