    Rather was talking about pinheads waiting for their WOZ's.

    I think when you look at the "Dave Christensen" style artwork that was super popular then you can think why they might be targeting lonely young men.

    It is what it is, it produced some distinctive artwork that is memorable to this day.

    As a pinball player, I don't get sexually frustrated because my balls drain all of the time

    #8 4 years ago

    dunno about pinballers, but i'm pretty convinced that trolls are...

    #9 4 years ago

    Far be it for me to defend Dan Rather....but he didn't make that statement. The gent he was interviewing did.

    #10 4 years ago

    I think Dan Rather's point is still valid--there are lots of similarities between sex and pinball. Maybe some of us are just nymphomaniacs (aka jackpotheads)

    #11 4 years ago

    Hmm let me think, crazy j with 90 plus pinball yep that sounds about right

    Yeah, I don't know why this guy is still on Pinside with classic threads like "Why is pinball such a white hobby?" and "What is ball freeze?"

    Ugh!

    Dan Rather, who is 81 now and still reporting, has always been an exemplary journalist, with much mettle, guts, and fortitude.

    Here's an excerpt:

    "Here it is, on a coat hook in midtown Manhattan: the Army-issue green shirt, with “CBS NEWS” written in white letters on the ID tag, that Dan Rather wore in 1966 while hunkered down in rice paddies along the Cambodian border. It would be one of the legendary network anchor’s most famous assignments: dispatching dramatic reports on the Vietnam conflict for millions of Americans sitting down to the evening news. In 16mm films you can see him, young and square-jawed, hair thick and black, barking into a microphone and recoiling from machine guns that rat-a-tat-tat behind him."

    Not sure what your point is, since my primary goal with the comment was to correct who said what about sexually frustrated pinball players.

    There should really be a poll attached to this post.

    Shut her down folks, best quote of the thread.

    #18 4 years ago

    Are you married? Then you are sexually frustrated. Pinball has nothing to do with it.

    What's the frequency, Kenneth?

    Quoted from Zippee:

    in both sex and pinball you shoot, score and play with balls
    and when you see red, it's special

    You also cradle the balls too!!!

    That's why I set all my games on Free Play. Plenty of quarters, but I can't ever find the slot.

    Yeah, can't argue with his coverage of Nam; that made his career. But then there was that sticky issue with his story that was based on that fake document about GWB's military service. Some of his staff got fired, Rather had to rescind the story and apologize, and shortly thereafter, left the network. Later, he sued CBS for about $100 mil, and it got tossed at least twice.

    I just watched that last night and I don't believe that it was Dan Rather who said it and what the guy did say is sexually frustrated people play pinball a lot, not- people who play pinball are sexually frustrated...its a fine line. We were laughing for awhile after that scene!

    That is correct. The fellow interviewed (can't recall the name) gave his opinion that sexually frustrated people played pinball.... "A LOT"

    #31 4 years ago

    That is ridiculous, it is not like we have pictures of boobs in almost every forum.... Stupid media

    .is this really true?

    When has anything Dan Rather said been true?

    Rather was dumped because he allowed the fake document to be used in the story. He didn't know it was fake though and didn't really need it. Everyone already knew the truth and Dubya never denied it. The revelations about the document gave his enemies the ammunition they needed to divert the focus from the truth and instead "shoot the messenger".

    Quoted from MrBally:

    That's what I think every time I hear the name Dan Rather. A great Journalist, he used to be. Then He became a phony Plagiarizer.

    #44 4 years ago

    you forgot the crazy cab ride, the walking off the set when the tennis match ran long, keep that microphone up, no mr president are you, as homely as a prison matron, standing up to read the news, that was an unchristian thing to do, be dan rather's boss, on and on and on...................
