Dan Rather might be in his final days at CBS

Dan RatherDan Rather told the Philadelphia Inquirer today that he is in contract negotiations with CBS five months before his contract ends in November. The scuttlebutt is that his days at the network, where he's worked for 44 years, are coming to an end. According to the Inquirer article, there are no plans for Rather to return to 60 Minutes after November, and his presence at CBS is causing some resentment (remember he was forced from the Evening News anchor chair in 2005 after presenting a sketchy 60 Minutes II story on President Bush's National Guard service).

Other articles, like these from Reuters appear to be more definitive; one even quotes Rather as saying that "finishing details are being worked out for me to leave CBS News after 44 years." Stay tuned on this one.

This writing has been on the wall for some time. This really shouldn't be a surprise.

Like all, his time has come and passed. I wish him well. Remember what you wish, he has always worn "Character", even when it was unpopular.
