Dan Rather Committed to Continuing Lawsuit, Despite Setback

Oct 2, 2009  •  Post A Comment

In his first interview since an appeals court threw out his lawsuit against CBS, Dan Rather told Fox News’ Neil Cavuto that the fight “is not over," and that another appeals court gets to settle the matter, the Huffington Post reports.

In the interview, the former CBS anchor said the lawsuit wasn’t only about his departure from the network but, "The most important principle and the basic reason I’m in it is, what kind of news are we going to have? We have very large corporate interests working with powerful political interests to manipulate the news and the people who report the news, whatever their political persuasion. I don’t think the American people want them, and what I have been seeking to do in this trial is to bring out the facts."
