    It is no surprise that this report of Dan Rather criticizing CBS News appeared in the entertainment section of CNN’s website. Certainly Rather’s criticism is justified. What person who really wants to get news watches any of the network evening news programs? At least Rather did not have the nerve to criticize CBS News for lack of integrity. He has already set one of journalism’s record low-water marks on that measure: http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2005/01/10/national/main665727.shtml.

    And - in other news - Ashlee Simpson and Milli Vanilli have issued a joint statement decrying the state of modern-day music performance. "Enough with all these production gimmicks, pitch correctors, and pre-recorded tracks", the statement reads. "Whatever happened to the good, old-fashioned, 'working without a net' aspect of live shows?"
