Personal Responsibility? WE don't need No Stinking Personal Responsibility.

In the Who Me? Olympics, it appears that Dan "what's the Frequency, Kenneth" Rather has decided that he is not to blame after all for the George Bush Texas National Guard story that got him shitcanned from CBS.

I am sure Bushie could not be happier as he now gets to see all this back in the news yet again, this time with court records, testimony and depositions.

Dan Rather Files Lawsuit Against CBS
Sep 19 04:03 PM US/Eastern

NEW YORK (AP) - Dan Rather filed a $70 million lawsuit Wednesday against CBS, alleging that the network made him a "scapegoat" for a discredited story about President Bush's National Guard service.

The 75-year-old Rather, whose final months were clouded by controversy over the report, says the complaint stems from "CBS' intentional mishandling" of the aftermath of the story.

The lawsuit, filed in State Supreme Court in Manhattan, also names CBS President and CEO Leslie Moonves, Viacom Inc. Chairman Sumner Redstone, and former CBS News President Andrew Heyward.

Rather is seeking $20 million in compensatory damages and $50 million in punitive damages.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
