Battle Between CBS and Dan Rather Gets Nastier

Sep 18, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Partisans of former CBS News anchor Dan Rather are questioning whether the broadcaster is attempting to erase him from its corporate memory, reports the Daily Beast.

The drama, set against the backdrop of Rather’s $70 million lawsuit against his former workplace, is playing out in such petty ways as whether the newsman would be welcomed at a memorial service for his predecessor Walter Cronkite and whether CBS will release archive footage of him to a documentary filmmaker.
