Power Line has some thoughts about Dan Rather’s appearance on David Letterman earlier tonight, and Steve Green links to video and a transcript. Scott Johnson of Power Line writes:
My translation of Rather’s take on the [Thornburgh] report is: “People have got to know whether or not their [anchor] is a crook. Well, I’m not a crook.”
Like I said, heh.
How should CBS proceed in their post-Rather period? Former Rather copywriter Peggy Noonan has some solid advice, all of which, of course, will be ignored inside Black Rock.
