    Dan Rather is suing CBS over the forged document case that got him fired. He is alleging fraud by CBS. He should know. Part of the legal process is the process of discovery, where CBS is obliged to give Rather documents relating to his dismissal. Lawyers transferred 3000 documents to Rather's lawyers.

    According to the Wall Street Journal among the documents were

    I actually met DR once... he seemed like a very sincere guy. It seems to me that some 1 in his position has to rely on his assistants to make sure the i's are dotted and t's are crossed, so I don't think it's necessarily fair that he was dismissed because is helpers didn't do their homework.

    Do some research on a report he did concerning a supposed 'Nam vet.

    Rather knew that the "facts" he reported were outright fabrication.

    Sincere as he may have seemed, Rather is a pure fraud.

    I'm not so sure. I think as someone in his position he relies on his staff. He did strike me as being a Lib, but I still think that agenda aside he believes in what he's saying. All I'm getting at is that he shouldn't have been fired over the Swift Boat thing. I think it would be difficult for him to personally vet all the information that he's given, and holding him responsible for others mistakes doesn't seem fair.

    Personally, I don't have any particular love for the guy, but I don't think it's fair to hold someone responsible for someone else's fuck up.

    The guy who puts his face in front of the camera and mic is the last word.

    His face and voice go out over the airwaves.....His credibility goes out over the airwaves.

    The buck stops there.

    Has Rather chosen accountability, or shifting of blame??

    he wasnt fired over the swift boat thing
    he was fired for using forged documents as real
    and for basically doing a piss poor hatchet job on Bush
