RatherGate, Cont'd.
Rather is retiring, coincidently, while the Rathergate investigation heats up.
Rather to Step Down in March After 24 Years as CBS Anchor

wo months after acknowledging that he could not authenticate documents central to a broadcast report that raised fresh questions about President Bush's National Guard service, Dan Rather announced today that he would step down as anchor and managing editor of the "CBS Evening News" on March 9, on what will be his 24th anniversary behind the anchor desk

.... which is not related to:
Among the central questions [the inquiry members] are examining is why Mr. Rather, who anchored the segment, and Mary Mapes, the producer who shepherded it, were so convinced of the authenticity of four memorandums purportedly drawn from the personal files of Mr. Bush's Vietnam-era squadron commander.

Time to hit the links, old boy....Maybe join Cronkite on the crazy old leftie tour of the media world.
