To the tune of Don McLean's timeless classic:

=============================

AMERICAN PIE (Dan Rather Lied)

Long, long Time ago.... can still remember Walter Cronkite... on the evening news....

Amer-ica just under-stood

His stories were true, the sources were good It was simple when the networks were so few.

But Danny Rather came and made us livid

with every flawed report he delivered

Bad news on the TV

'Twas enough to make you scream.

I can't remember if I cried

when I read about the memo lies

but something touched me deeeeeep inside, the day......that CBS......LIED....

So...

Byyyye, bye - liberal me-d-ia lies

Rather blew it, and we knew it - all he did was deny ..and good old days of ever trusting the eye, are now gone because the CBS lied...

...gone because that man Rather lied.

Did you write the memos fake,

and do you have faith they weren't on the take if the L.A. Times tells you so

..and do you believe just one ex-pert

and the little to which - he'll assert

even when everyone else says he's wrong

We'll now we know those letters just can't be right, but Rather continues his pathetic fight His bosses will 'vestigate....but this looks like Wa-ter-gate...

I have to say it almost made me smile

to see the old man in such deep denial

it's like CBS was put on trial.

The day.,... 60 Minutes.... died...

They were flingin':

Byyyye, bye - liberal me-d-ia lies

Rather blew it, and we knew it - all he did was deny ..and good old days of ever trusting the eye, are now gone because the CBS lied...

...gone because that man Rather lied.

 

Now for many years we had no choice

until then talk radio gave us voice

from now on thatís how it's gon-na be

When reporters sang for the king and queen

with the most leftist coverage youíve ever seen

and a voice... that didn't come... from you and me...

oh and, while the king was looking down

the internet stole his thorny crown

Their power had been lost

their ratings this will cost

and while Koppel read a book on Marx, the Today Show still tried to make

their mark

but they were sadl-y in the dark

the day,,, that Raaaaather lied

You can't believe 'em.:

Byyyye, bye liberal me-d-ia lies

Rather blew it, and we knew it - all he did was deny

..and good old days of ever trusting the eye, are now gone because the CBS

lied...

...gone because that man Rather lied.

 

Knew an anchor babe that sang the blues

and I asked for fair and balanced news

she said FOX and - turned away..

I went down the cable store

where I'd heard the newscasts years before

but the man there said the old news wouldn't play..

In the streets the networks screamed, the papers cried, and the critics

reamed

Unbelieving a word that's spoken, the nation's dialogue's broken..

and the three men now in the tightest jam:

Tom B, Peter J and the Liar Dan,

they'll all have time to work onnnnn their tan...

be-cause....old media..... died...

Now don't believe it (slowly):

Byyyye, byyyye liberal me-d-ia lies

Rather blew it, and we knew it - all he did was deny

..and good old days of ever trusting the eye, are now gone because the CBS

lied...
