Dan Rather loses bid in CBS lawsuit
Los Angeles Times ^ | January 13, 2010 | Matea Gold

Reporting from New York - Dan Rather's protracted legal fight with CBS ended Tuesday when New York state's highest court declined to hear the anchor's motion to reinstate his $70-million lawsuit against his longtime employer.

“Dan Rather’s protracted legal fight with CBS ended Tuesday when New York state’s highest court declined to hear the anchor...”

They didn’t want to hear from him again either...that makes it pretty much unanimous, no?

But after the validity of the documents came under intense scrutiny, the network conceded that they could not be authenticated.

Ha...validity came under scrutiny? They were proven fake!

This has got to be as painful for Dan as a seat cushion spring in an old ‘48 Ford thrusting up into your left butt cheek after hitting a pothole on U.S. 90 leaving West Texas on a hot summer day.

Sorry, Dan, you may now resume your normal daily activity of searching Kinko’s wastebaskets for more damning super-secret material on W.

Well done, sir. You started this, and the courts have finally finished it.

I wonder if Dan Rather and Mary Mapes will be remembered more for their outrageous liberal bias or for their outrageous incompetence. I'd probably bet on the former, but it would be a tough call.

This short list (so far) of responses has made me reminisce. You’ve hit so many Dan Ratherisms it is just making me laugh hysterically. Thanks.

Is there a YouTube video that shows Mary Mapes babbling about politically motivated typefaces and peripheral spacing? It would be fun to revisit her special insights into the VRWC.

Darn! Too bad Dan.

Maybe you can talk a local university into giving you some airtime on their campus radio news spot.
