So let me get this straight. Dan Rather believed in the story he was getting from trusted sources (his producers and reporters in the field) who depended largely on false information. He then stood by that story even as external and contrary evidence mounted. He was then slow to admit a mistake. Some have even argued that Rather was slow to accept reality because it conflicts with his personal political leanings.
President Bush did the exact same thing except in his case he was dealing with WMDs.
And people are calling for Rather to resign?
