The old network talking heads like Dan Rather (CBS) and Sam Donaldson (ABC) always seemed a little off - as in deranged Leftists - but they got away with it for years. Rather lost out when he peddled demonstrably false allegations about Dubya on national tv. Exit stage Left, Danny. So Danny's had no credibility since that debacle, but Sammy's always got a pass - even though he's as hard-Left as Danny.
Sam Donaldson is a regular guest on ABC News' "This Week" and made himself famous as a left-wing reporter disguised as an objective reporter who regularly taunted President Reagan throughout the 1980s.
Most recently, Donaldson caused controversy back in June with his racially divisive rhetoric accusing some on the political right of opposing President Obama and his policies because the president is black.
