Well, as I’m sure you have all heard by now, CBS’s disgraced former news anchor, Dan Rather, is suing CBS and it’s parent company Viacom for $70 million.
The suit stems from what he claims was a breach of his contract and damages resulting from a 60 Minutes II broadcast that claimed that President George W. Bush was given preferential treatment in the National Guard. The memo used as a main source of information in the story was later to be found out to be a lie. CBS apologized, and forced Rather to apologize. To this day, he says that the source is credible.
EVEN if there was a breach of contract, and EVEN if the memo was true (which most Americans even believe it’s a lie), why is Mr. Rather waiting this long to file the suit? Because the thought CBS would’ve come crawling back to him by now? Well, I guess that method didn’t work for him, so he has to go after them like Dick Cheney going after a Hunter (just kidding – I like Dick Cheney, but I gotta throw in a Republican joke every once in a while, since 99% of my jokes are about Democrats).
I say that Mr. Rather waited to long in deciding whether or not he was going to sue CBS.
