Dan Rather's new FB page

Dan Rather launches gutsy newsgroup to counter fake news & alternative facts

American journalist and esteemed news anchor Dan Rather announced a new social media page in the midst of January’s flying fake news and alternative facts. The Facebook “digital news feed” page is called  News and Guts”and if it’s anything like Dan Rather’s posts this past year, it’s going to be like a sledge-hammer coming down on the new administration. 
In a recent post, Rather states:
Journalism, real journalism, deep-digging reporting without fear or favor, is as important now, if not more so, than any time I can remember. 
Over the past year, Dan Rather has built a Facebook page following of over 1.3 million people. It’s a place where he shares his political commentary along with posting news stories from other respected sources. He says during weeks like in early January when confirmation hearings were coming in fast and furious, there is only so much that he can do on one page and there are far more articles that deserve attention, as well as great reporters he’d like to spotlight.
