Like Jimmy Carter, Dan Rather is another discredited old fool who just won't shut up and and gracefully fade away. Now, he is suing CBS and another old fool, Larry King, is supplying him with a protected forum in which to babble.
Let's see Dan is doing this not for the money, but for the principle. Why then doesn't he sue for $1 instead of $70 million? He says, "We have to get back to integrity in the news.” Well, Dan your failure to maintain news integrity is one of the really big reasons you're no longer relevant.
Like an old sports figure who sadly keeps trying to play after his physical gifts are gone, Dan lusts for the days of yore when he could successfully engage in repartee with Tricky Dick or struggle with security at the Democratic National Convention. Oh, for the days when there were real stories and one didn't have to invent them.
Dan has had a history of strange behavior, odd statements and no small degree of phoniness. What seems to be really bothering him is no one cares what he has to say anymore.
