#7 That's another reason why I doubt the diagnosis here.
How could you doubt it? Cuba claims to have the best medical resources in the world.
Further down in the article is this comment by Rather:
Reporter's note: There is only one source for identifying the cancer and for the prognosis quoted in the first part of the above story. This is a person whom your reporter has very good reason to trust, but you should know that there is only one source so far; no other immediate confirmation. All sources asked for and were granted anonymity because to reveal their names could place them in danger or, at the very least cost them their positions.
I wonder what Belafonte, Penn, Campbell, Spacey, Glover, Sarandon, et. al. would have to say about their hero now given that it is Rather himself who admitted it.

#8 He actually made a not admitting there was one source, and that he couldn't reveal it for fear of backlash against the source? You'd almost think he was a genuine journalist!

#9 Rumor is that the source was named 'Hillary'. Backlash wouldn't be against the 'source', but from.
