Rather became Facebook’s favorite newsman by bringing context and perspective to a turbulent news cycle. Now he continues to give a calming and rational voice to a world gone mad.

Mr. Rather is the voice of reason, understanding, and the calming voice of hope when I'm feeling as if there is nothing left inside of me . . . when I think I just can't tolerate one more incident of disgrace for our demoralized Country under Trump's dangerous leadership. He resets the path of who we are as a nation during this testing time when it's so easy to feel buried under the daily onslaught from the White House. Mr. Rather, so far your podcast is thought provoking; drilling down into the facts of this past week and the impact we face under this attack. I appreciate your describing, very thoroughly, each facet of this past week's turmoil, drawing the lines, connecting the dots and ensuring we understand what is at stake....The rest of Blinking Red is what I can look forward to.
Mr. Rather hits the bullseye in the center. Russia is moving just like it did 100 years ago, but using modern weapons and methods. We are under attack and our leader does not know it. President Kennedy faced the Russians and they backed down. We need that type of leader now but do not have one. Let's make sure we take a major step in November to righting the direction of the country. It is up to us.
Nice way to start my day today!
Thank you, Mr. Rather. I appreciate your commitment to our nation and the truth. Keep them coming!
