Dan Rather’s Lawsuit Against CBS ¶
Rather was fired the day after the 2004 election for airing an allegedly false report about Bush’s attendance at the Texas Air National Guard. Rather’s reasons for filing suit are valorous:
“CBS broke with long-standing tradition at CBS News and elsewhere of standing up to political pressure,” says Rather. “And, there’s no joy in saying it, they caved … in an effort to placate their regulators in Washington.”
Fight the good fight.
