Goodbye, Dan

There's something wrong with Susan Estritch's calculus. She says news is a business based on loyalty. I say it's a business based on trust. It's a shame Rather went and squandered the trust he'd spent 23 years building up, but thems the breaks, and he has no one to blame but himself.

For Dan Rather Ditching, Shame on CBS

LOS ANGELES — Shame on CBS for treating Dan Rather so badly. In a business that depends on loyalty, they've shown none. And what goes around may come around, if viewers are indeed watching.

Face it, Suze. Dan attempted to influence the outcome of a presidential election while hiding under the guise of objective reporting. He got caught and 23 years of hard earned trust with America evaporated. No amount of loyalty on the part of CBS will re-establish that trust. It's over.
