Cnet’s coverage here. He makes some good points, my favorite is the quote:”What happens on the streets of Baghdad or Kabul does matter on Main Street.”
Very true. Sometimes we forget.
I like Dan Rather. I remember when I first met him, twelve years ago. I was an intern at CBS News. Back then they actually had an OJ Simpson Unit and I interned there and at 48 Hours. During the trial, the court transcripts would come into the newsroom and I would have to pull them from the “wire” and hand them to Dan Rather. Big whoop, I know. But technology has changed everything! I remember opening up viewer mail for show ideas for 48 Hours. Imaging that. I have a good Mike Wallace story to share too, perhaps at lunch I will post about it.
