Just Another Reason why the Old Media is Dying

The CBS report on the fake Bush National Guard memos is out. Four execs, including Mary Mapes got the axe. Dan Rather escaped further humiliation.

This is more proof the death rattle of the old media is sounding. Rather should have been shown the door for his part of the scandal. The report gives the impression that he was just a mere pawn. Are you telling me that Rather has no power to approve or decline a story?

The AP report only lists Rather as a narrator. Interesting. We have been told for a long time that he's a go-getter news hound. If all he does is read, then maybe it is time to go.
