    LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) -- CBS is expected to announce today that former "CBS Evening News" anchor Dan Rather will leave the network after 44 years. Rather's contract runs through November, but he is expected to leave CBS immediately to pursue other opportunities. A special tribute to Rather's career is expected to appear on tonight's "CBS Evening News." The move was widely expected in the past few weeks after Rather, 74, had said that he would be leaving CBS after negotiations on a new contract hadn't guaranteed him anything but an office at the network. After leaving "CBS Evening News"...

    NEW YORK — His four-decade run at CBS was headed toward the finish line, but former anchor Dan Rather continued to press the network where he'd made his name to send him back into service on some big stories. The longtime correspondent, known for his travels to hot spots around the world, said he had asked to go to the Gulf Coast last fall to cover Hurricane Katrina and to visit Iraq and Afghanistan to cover the conflicts there, but his requests were denied. "They just said, 'Not interested,' " he said. It now seems clear that even then CBS...

    Maria Gamez whimpered quietly and admitted feeling "a small pain" two hours into hard labor at Parkland Memorial Hospital. But she did not want a spinal infusion of painkiller, called an epidural, to make her discomfort disappear. "Hispanic women are just wonderful; they birth wonderfully," Tori Agustsdottir, the nurse-midwife, confided as she stepped out of the room. "The perception of pain is very cultural. These women don't want epidurals. But American women are quick to take the medication." Ms. Gamez is typical of Parkland's current generation of maternity patients. She is Hispanic and an immigrant and had nowhere else to...

    NEW YORK - Like so many women, Suzanne Holstein, a schoolteacher and mother of two, has had her struggles balancing motherhood and career. So she was sympathetic when she heard that ABC anchor Elizabeth Vargas, a woman she admires, was stepping down from her prestigious evening-news perch to focus on her growing family. And yet, like many women across the country, Holstein is not only a little disappointed by Vargas' move, but a little suspicious. "I can't believe that a woman who's worked so hard to get where she is would just resign like that," says Holstein, 39. "I think...

    The term "anchor baby" is unfamiliar to most Americans, but it nicely describes one of the more troubling aspects of American immigration policy. Put simply, an anchor baby is the offspring of an illegal immigrant who, under current legal interpretation, becomes a U.S. citizen at birth and, in turn, is the means by which parents and relatives can also obtain citizenship for themselves by using the family reunification features of immigration law. It's estimated there may be as many as 200,000 anchor babies born each year in the U.S. No single agency keeps track, but there is abundant, if fragmented,...

    Dealing with Anchor BabiesBy Congressman Mac Collins (Ret. R-GA)Each year the United States grants citizenship to a quarter of a million children of illegal aliens. There is a common misconception among the public that such citizenship is a constitutional guarantee. The fact is that the constitutional question of whether the 14th amendment grants citizenship to children of foreigners born on U.S. soil was addressed by the Supreme Court over 100 years ago in the Slaughter House Cases and, again, in 1971 in the case of Rogers v. Belle . All existing case law confirms that the Fourteenth Amendment does not...

First, TV Guide reports that Nat alie Morales has moved to the top of the replace ment list if Katie bolts to CBS. Morales is close to signing a long-term deal with the network, which would move her out of MSNBC, where she's been a daytime anchor since...

    Have you heard about the latest tragedy from Iraq? If you haven’t, you soon will. And if you haven’t, you surely haven’t been paying attention. A journalist and cameraman have been injured. I’ll pause to let the gravity of that set in. All over the MSM this weekend and this morning is the story of how an ABC newsman, Bob Woodruff, and his cameraman, Doug Vogt, sustained injuries after an encounter with a roadside bomb. Curiously absent from the accounts though, is any mention of SOLDIERS who were impacted by the incident. And therein lies the basis for my vitriol....

    I'm doing a little research on drugs and the media... er... drugs in the media. I seem to recall that, back during the early eighties, there was a female anchor doing a live broadcast for a national network's evening news. Instead of performing amicably, she was high on drugs (cocaine?) Her eyes were dialated, her speech was slurred, and she was replaced right after the first break. Anyone know who this mystery anchorwoman was and what happened to her? Wish I could remember more details

    Bill would deny U.S. citizenship to children of illegal immigrants By: EDWARD SIFUENTES - Staff WriterA bill recently introduced in Congress would deny U.S. citizenship to children born to illegal immigrants. Supporters said the bill, called the Citizenship Reform Act of 2005, would be a good way to control the number of people who have the right to claim citizenship ---- and the rights and benefits that come with it. Opponents said the measure was "extreme" and would be likely to face constitutional challenges. An estimated 200,000 to 300,000 children are born to illegal immigrants in the United States each...

    For some veterans of CBS News, the departure of Dan Rather from the network's evening newscast represents a kind of coda on a long, sad song of decline from greatness. The news organization that did the most to define broadcast news from the early days of radio through the golden age of television in the 1950's and 1960's has gone through a marked falloff in the last 15 years, probably suffering more than any other network from the shrinking of resources that matched its shrinking audiences. But the notion that Mr. Rather's decision to give up his anchor job is...

    If you don't think our Congress is taking Americans for a ride, think again. According to Dr. Madeleine Cosman, "At least 300,000 to 350,000 anchor babies annually become citizens of California." In 1994, 74,987 anchor babies in maternity units cost taxpayers $215 million in Stockton, California. In 2003, 70% of the 2,300 babies born in San Joaquin General maternity ward were from illegal aliens. That number has exploded today with over three million illegal aliens residing in California.

    NEW YORK (AP) — CNN's Aaron Brown took a step into political activism this week, saying it was "unconscionable and indefensible" for House leadership to deny an extension to the Sept. 11 commission. Brown urged viewers Thursday night to protest the decision — less than 24 hours before House Speaker Dennis Hastert agreed to give the independent panel investigating the attacks an extra two months to finish its report. "Perhaps the speaker and his team assume you do not care," Brown said. "I hope they're wrong. I hope you care enough to write them and e-mail them and call them...
