60 Minutes Wednesday canceled

Nothing to do with last year's Rathergate controversy of course, just a decision based on ratings.

Yeah right.

CBS has three of the top rated primetime network programs. If they really wanted to keep Dan Rather and 60 Minutes II, if they were truely comitted to the journalistic integrity 60 Minutes represents they could simply shift money from the enormously successful CSI, CSI:Miami, and Survivor over to the news department to make up the shortfall. It's done every week with Larry King and other such programs. The advertising revenue doesn't quite cover expenses, but the network executives believe in the value of the product so they underwrite the loss with profits from other programs.

Tell me Dan isn't dead weight. Go ahead. Convince me.
