Rather Missed Out on $4 Mil Job

Oct 8, 2008  •  Post A Comment

A lawyer for Dan Rather in his ongoing breach-of-contract lawsuit with CBS says Rather lost out on a $4 million per year job because the network did not properly let him go, the Associated Press reports. Rather faced controversy when a “60 Minutes II” story he did on President George W. Bush’s military service was found to be based on documents that hadn’t been authenticated. After the incident Rather was kept at the network and CBS says he was paid what he was owed. But Rather’s lawyer says because CBS did not let him go in a timely manner, he missed out on other opportunities and now makes $1.5 million a year working with HDNet, the wire service says.
