Bozell Column: Dan Rather In History |

Bozell Column: Dan Rather In History |

Two things come to mind when I think about Dan Rather, one is of him almost blowing away covering hurricane Carla, his big break, and the other is that he went to Sam Houston University in Huntsville where my youngest daughter also earned a degree. Neither memory is that remarkable.

The older I get the less likely I am to watch ANY broadcast news program. The people with the pretty smiles and poofy hair that sit behind the desks, the so-called "news anchors", are merely R-E-P-O-R-T-E-R-S ..... they are there to report the news, not make it or invent it or embroider it to suit their own agendas. They tend to start believing they are some how the story and that their opinions matter. It's the same way with "movie stars" and other "personalities" that forget their job is to E-N-T-E-R-T-A-I-N and A-M-U-S-E not educated their "fans" on their political views and biases. All one has to do is observe how they run their private lives to understand just how whacked their thinking and judgments can be.

But I digress, back to Dan's departure, too bad, so sad, NEXT. I'm surprised they didn't can him immediately after the Bush bash.
