You have fallen for Rather and Mapes' false version of events. I followed the story at the time. The "truth" was that these fine folks tried to throw an election using a badly-sourced story and some documents that are known to be false now and were known to be unreliable at the time. And they were caught, not by anyone "spewing misogyny and racism", but by a bunch of amateur bloggers tracking down the clues in real time. As CBS now says, it was maybe the biggest embarrassment in their history.
Read up on the story; wikipedia has a good treatment.

You know Brunson, sometimes someone is just a jerk. Take you, you're a white male. But a jerk. So if Obama's a jerk, he's a jerk, not a "black jerk".
You were dead on about Pan, until your last comment. Hook worse than Pan?! Not by a long shot. I've enjoyed Hook with my children and grandchildren, many times. I'll never get back the two hours wasted watching Pan.
Also, I thought Garrett Hedland's Hook was trying (miserably) to mimic Harrison Ford...but Indiana Jones, not Han Solo. And Princess Tiger Lily, dressed as Cher, was pretty awful too.
In 1999 CBS also burned "The Insider" for the way 60 MINUTES (mis)handled The RJ Reynolds tobacco story.. The story that destroyed their integrity, credibility... Painted Mike Wallace in a very bad light to... All came down to money.
Thanks for writing, Pat. Or maybe you have the worse [sic] taste of all time?
Seriously, these days I refrain from commenting usually, but Hook was incredible. You are possibly the worse critic of all time.
Just so you know, Spirited Away is *still* Japan's all-time top moneymaker by a large margin.
There is no understated intelligence. I don't think it's possible to dumb a movie down anymore than they did with this. Those who think this is a really good movie have to be the same morons that literally laugh out loud at some of the worst jokes and one-liners ever used. The type that don't get out much, don't get sarcasm, are easily offended so G rated humor only, and need a narrator to explain everything (in this case it's Matt Damon's video log). 2+ hours of watching potatoes grow on Mars and scientists & engineers on Earth solve complex problems without ever talking beyond a 3rd grade level of intellect.
Thanks for writing, PanFan. Nope, not "retarted." That would be quite a feat for Hook to be "the most celebrated childhood adventure among anyone in the 80's," considering it didn't come out until the 1990s. Better step away from the keyboard before YOU hurt yourself.
No, discerning film fans (not just people who saw it as a kid and thought it was great and hold onto that belief no matter what) pretty much acknowledge it as Spielberg's worst movie (along with The Lost World: Jurassic Park), and with good reason.
Are you retarted bro? Hook? That's like the most celebrated childhood adventure among anyone in the 80's. Put the pen down before you hurt yourself.
Actually this review is an incorrect over generalization. My husband and I loved this film having watched it hours ago and we are both very familiar with the works of charlotte bronte (jane eyre) among other classic works such as Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and Bram Stokers Dracula. Granted this movie took a turn for the less paranormal when you reach the ending, however the gothic artistry and superb acting especially from wasikowska brings delight just in time for Halloween :) also...just a tip. ..you may not want to put too many details in your review (spoiler alert) for those who did not have a chance to watch yet.
I'm glad you lied the James Garner "Support Your___________" films Garner was always underrated as an actor/producer.... The supporting cast were excellent especially Jack Elam and Bruce Dern...
Thanks for writing, fanboy123. I liked Interstellar, but calling it one of the greatest movies EVER MADE (really? Up there with Citizen Kane, Modern Times, The Seventh Seal, Rashomon, The Maltese Falcon, etc.?) makes me believe your viewing habits are mostly limited to films released in the last 20 or so years. And explain to me how comparing movies from the same genre is "sensationaliz(ing) the topic"?
You have to be kidding me. Interstellar was one of the greatest movies ever made and yet you say it is worse than both The Martian and Gravity even though the scope of the movie is enormous. The films cover entirely different topics, but yet you seem to wish to sensationalize the topic at hand, which is whether The Martian is a good movie. I liked all of the movies, but Interstellar is by far the best without a shadow of a doubt. Even if you don't agree with me, the movies are not comparable. You are truly a delusional writer.
Great movie. As a Baby Boomer, I hope live long enough to see a Mars landing.

I enjoyed the movie but the book was much better. Most of the casting was very good except for Jessica Chastain. She was weak and boring in this role.
On ENTOURAGE, I never understood how Adrian Grenier and Kevin Connolly ever had a career in Hollywood.. To describe them as medicore actors insults mediocrity. It was painful to watch...
I saw Murder, My Sweet when I was a teenager.. I only knew Dick Powell as a song and dance man before this.. I discovered later he was a shrewd business man who along with Charles Boyer, David Niven and Ida Lupino started Four Star Productions which was responsible for a lot of successful series in late 50's and 60's.. Burke's Law, The Rifleman, The Rogues, Big Valley and Dick Powell Theater.
In real life Powell was a compulsive womanizer, a major alcoholic and huge right wing nutbag in same league as John Wayne, whom he directed in the piece of shit "The Conqueror"... Powell contracted Cancer like everyone else did on that film and passed away in 1964...
I loved the documentary about Cannon Films... To be politically incorrect for a moment.. They were not shrewd Israeli film makers, they were almost stereo typical money grubbing Jews. Mel Gibson refused to have anything to do with them in early 80's which was a true story..
I also loved that little dig the producers of the documentary made saying how Golan/Globus never attended lavish Hollywood parties.. The real reason being they were never, never invited and no one wanted any association with them.
At least we get to know what's Brunson take on Deflate-Gate. It's pretty obvious Brunson is still bitter about Brady having the last laugh.
