“CBS EVENING NEWS RATINGS HIT NEW LOW“. Clearly, there’s only one thing to do: Replace the aging Dan Rather with someone new and different. Someone with bold ideas. A fresh thinker. Someone who’s controversial, instead of the same kind of whitebread liberal anchors the networks always churn out. CBS needs a firebrand. A rebel.

Gentlemen, I have your man: Phil Donahue, tanned, rested and ready. What he did to for MSNBC, he can do for your network as well.
