    RUSH: Speaking of relics, Dan Rather was in Manhattan on Monday night. He was wandering around. I think that he was looking for a National Guard office. I think he’s still following leads on the George W. Bush story. He ended up at a TV network, and they were so excited to see him at the TV network that they put him on the air. It was Friday night. They were ecstatic! Here’s Dan Rather wandering the streets of Manhattan looking for a National Guard office, and he wanders into a TV network/cable news network. They put him on the...

Appearing on the syndicated Chris Matthews Show, Rather said, "These people politically want to cut his heart out and throw his liver to the dogs" (video follows with transcript and commentary): DAN RATHER: All of these things we’ve said about what the president could do, should do, might have, could have, but the central...

    Even Dan Rather, the poster child of media bias, admitted on Morning Joe today that it is likely going to be “a good day for Romney.” The Politico reported: Longtime television journalist Dan Rather said on Tuesday that reporters shouldn’t predict elections based on their gut — but added that his tells him Mitt Romney will have a good day. “Something in my gut tells me that it’s going to be a good day for Romney,” Rather said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

    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. Rather was hoping the court would breathe new life into his suit alleging breach of contract and fraud against CBS that a state appellate court had dismissed in September. But the Court of Appeals denied Rather's motion without comment

    I wish it could have been sooner. But now is better than never for people who have been suffering the biased reporting of this “reporter’s reporter” for way too many years. Rather’s endless love affair with the tyrant-for-life of Cuba made him infamous among Cubans as he not only nauseated, ulcerated and may have caused high blood pressure, heart burn and heart attacks in Cuban Americans in the U.S. With the false image of Castro that Rather promoted, he caused a lot of pain and suffering for the Cuban’s surviving under Castro’s boots. How many more people died in the...

    Fred R. Conrad/The New York Times, 2004Dan Rather might work for the high-definition channel HDNet. The 74-year-old man with the Mets cap pulled far down on his forehead slid into a booth at a diner on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and ordered a glass of milk without so much as turning a head — so quietly, in fact, that it was hard to believe it was Dan Rather. In place of the swagger that had served him so well throughout his 44-year career at CBS News was an obvious sadness that his tenure at the network was...

    RICHMOND, Va. -- The Richmond Times-Dispatch said Saturday it fired a reporter for fabricating part of a story and has begun investigating his other work. Paul Bradley, 51, who worked in the newspaper's northern Virginia bureau, was dismissed Friday, the newspaper reported. The article, published May 17, was intended to gather reaction in Herndon to President Bush's speech on immigration. Bradley's fabrications, the Times-Dispatch said, included an interview that did not occur with the director of a center for day laborers and the misrepresentation that he had visited the center by using a Herndon dateline. Managing editor Louise C. Seals...

    This just in from source at Black Rock: He/She is at pre-season party in The Hamptons. Other CBSers (The Suits) are there as well. The Suits confirmed: Ran Rather's contract at CBS expires in August. He has not been offered ANY type of renewal. There may be some tiny dollar (the exact fee never to be disclosed) face-saving deal but that's it, Dan is out. This comes after he "resigned" from CBS Evening News position last year in an attempt to stop the bloodletting of advertisers at CBS. As we all know, the primary cause was not so much Rather's...

    Leslie Cauley, the USA Today reporter who last week “broke” the news that three major U.S. telecommunications companies were assisting the National Security Agency in building a database to more easily track any communications by potential terrorists, is listed as a donor to former House Minority Leader Richard Gephardt... A search found a listing for "writer and journalist" Leslie Cauley, indicating she gave $2,000 to Gephardt on June 30, 2003, when Gephardt was running for the Democratic presidential nomination. And that seems not to be her only tie to Democratic politics ... Cauley's link to a Democratic campaign seems likely...

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - CBS is trying to change the face of network news by luring Katie Couric, co-host of NBC's top-rated morning show "Today," to the evening news anchor seat vacated by Dan Rather, the Los Angeles Times said on Friday. Citing senior editorial staffers at both networks, the Times said newly installed CBS News President Sean McManus had determinedly wooed Couric in recent weeks to take over as permanent anchor of the CBS Evening News and that Couric was seriously considering such a move. CBS and NBC both declined comment on the story. Media reports began circulating in...

    Emptying out his cubbyhole office in the CBS News building on West 57th Street in New York, wading through stacks and boxes of memorabilia accumulated over the years, Dan Rather came upon a piece of framed embroidery made and sent to him a couple decades ago by a nun who was, one might say, among the faithful -- a regular and loyal viewer.

Dan Rather is adamant if not downright defiant on that particular topic. He is, however, packing up, with his long-held office under deconstruction during his final days as anchor of the storied CBS Evening News. He's only moving across the street and just up the block to 555 W. 57th St., where he'll...

    A farewell to Dan Poker by Nathan Carleton March 03, 2005 Just one more week. Just one more week until Dan Rather “retires” from CBS News’s anchor chair and starts filing reports for 60 Minutes. Just one more week until a 24-year run of biased, misleading, politicized TV journalism comes to an end. As Dan’s colleagues give him a hero’s sendoff, remember the rest of the story: 6/17/87: On CBS’s Evening News, Rather says viewers are wrong in believing the Soviet people want freedom. “Despite what many Americans think,” he says, “most Soviets do not yearn for capitalism or Western-style...

Overall, Iraqis were brave and determined, and turned out to vote in large, heartening numbers. ... The much maligned, newly trained Iraqi security forces put in charge of basic polling place protection performed far beyond general expectations.... American soldiers, Marines, airmen and sailors once again delivered -- big time -- in hundreds of ways, large and small. ... The insurgency failed to pull off a single "spectacular" on Election Day. There was not one cataclysmic event.

    Whither Dan now? During a long, dark day at CBS News that was wracked by anger, remorse and disbelief, this was the one inescapable question that emerged from the Memogate wreckage. What about the man who has been the symbolic leader of this diminished news division for the last 24 years -- its public face to the world and, for all intents and purposes, the reigning soul of this once mighty machine? Depending on who was doing the asking, the question took on different shades of meaning throughout the day. To some, Rather, who anchored the Sept. 8 report on...
