Dan Rather vs. CBS
When CBS replaced the
edgy Rather with the sugary Katie Couric as anchor of the "Evening News," it
imagined it had solved its problem, its "errors." The news would get softer, the
Republicans in control of the White House and Congress would be nicer, Viacom
would grab more media, and ratings would climb. Thus, dismissing Rather would
yield untold dividends. Unfortunately for CBS's visionaries, none of that has
worked out as planned. Couric simply lacks basic journalistic instincts and
skills, and the "CBS Evening News" is at rock bottom in ratings and sinking
Rather could have simply allowed the statute of limitations to run out, lived off his millions, and faded away. But the incident ate at him. On one level, the Bush National Guard story is about Bush and the National Guard. On another, of course, it is about Rather's reputation. But on yet another it is about CBS's overwhelming desire to please the Bush White House and censor itself.
Katie Couric vs. Dan Rather
"There were things in
there that were quite egregious in terms of how it was reported," Couric said of
"And sloppy work is sloppy work."
"I don't believe Ms. Couric knows all the facts," Rather told The Post yesterday.
"When they come out, she may well change her mind."

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas Wrote A Book!
Washington parties can be crashed with simple name-dropping or the flash of a
powerful business card. Next week’s book party for Supreme Court Justice
Clarence Thomas, however, is off-limits to intruders.
“If you don’t have an invite, don’t come,” said Armstrong Williams, who will host the party at his Northeast D.C. home. “And don’t bring guests who aren’t on the list.”
