You Can’t Teach an Old Dog New Tricks

Good ole’ Dan is still playing the ‘straight shooting independent journalist card’ vs. those evil, biased, viscous forces of repression. You know, the ones who don’t fall for forgeries.

Here’s a particularly telling bit:

“Rather acknowledged he comes to HDNet with ‘baggage.’

‘Yes, I have baggage -- I have the baggage of being a graduate of the journalism school of South Vietnam,’ he said”
While there’s plenty of blame to go around over who was responsible for losing the war in Vietnam, with the resulting institution of the gulag in Vietnam, the refugee crisis, genocide in Cambodia, political repression and persecution, etc. etc., etc., it seems odd that he’s lining up to take his share of credit for the misery imposed on millions.

And now the standard MSM line about his independence and heroism in the face of his biased, bigoted, and benighted critics:

“‘Some of what you describe as 'baggage,' ‘ he told one critic, ‘comes from people who have the following view: Their view is, 'You report the news the way I want it eported or I'm going to make you pay a price and hang a sign around your neck saying you're a bomb-toting Bolshevik or something.'’ "

Hey Dan! I’ve got some “Documents” that conclusively prove that Karl Rove was behind the deaths of Elvis, Nicole Simpson, JonBenet Ramsey, and Natalee Holloway, just so that he could harvest their organs for sale on the black market to boost the profits of Halliburton!!! Nobody has ever proven that these documents were not forgeries!!!

Meet me at the behind the rodeo storage sheds for details…..
