They can't get away with quite so many lies now...

From Polipundit:

Tet
Today is the anniversary of the
Tet Offensive, when ultra-liberal CBS anchorman Walter Cronkite decided to openly side with the Vietnamese Communists.

Current ultra-liberal CBS anchorman Dan Rather, by contrast, has to grit his teeth and
report the good news. Thanks to fact-checking by the New Media, if Rather lied like Cronkite did, he’d become even more of a laughingstock than he already is.

Cronkite is a true hero of the Left, having helped consign millions to communist tyranny or death. Dan Rather and the Gasping Media would like to emulate the master, but they have much less maneuvering room these days...The teeth-gritting is evident in Rather's article...
