Rather Jumps a Shark -- but its His Own Reality

Highlights of Dan Rather's oddball tenure as anchor of the CBS Evening News:

"Courage."

"What's the frequency, Kenneth."

Going dark for 60 seconds while protesting a CBS decision.

Ambushed and stunned by the elder George Bush bringing up the 60 seconds dark incident.

Running with a story based on shoddy journalism using obviously forged documents.

Defending said story after everyone in the world realizes that it was not merely bogus, but embarrassingly so.

And, the post-mortem: quixotically suing his former employer for allegedly undermining him after he ran said story and defended it to the bitter end. I guess CBS was supposed to follow him over the cliff.
