Dan Rather’s $70 million lawsuit alleges there was more to his CBS departure than meets the eye. But former colleagues aren’t convinced.
In parts, it reads like a political thriller, with a cast of “right-wing” hit men out to force a powerful journalist to heel. Or a tale of corporate deceit, in which Machiavellian suits sacrifice their own to cozy up to the president of the United States. Or a behind-the-scenes saga of a network news division assembling a story that could help unseat an incumbent president at the polls.

It doesnt pass the sniff test!
BTW, you are not a Marine until you COMPLETE recruit training.
Rather was NEVER a Marine.
Yes, the media wanted to take out RN. But, the Watergate burglary was at least a fact.
Conversely, the Texas ANG letter was pure fabrication. I wonder what the nation’s reaction would have been had the TANG letter been widely accepted, his poll numbers then tanked, he loses, Kerry wins and then a few months into 2005 it comes out that the letter was fantasy of CBS News.
Our country was fortunate that CBS was so incompetent in their pathological need to destroy Republicans.
Dan, you’d have been much better off if you had just retired quietly. As long as this lawsuit continues, people will be reminded every day what a loon you really are.
