    Mitch, where have you been? This has been in the news since the election scandal CBS was involved in. Last night was his final evening news broadcast...right after that CBS had an hour-long Dan Rather special.

    We don't have the tv on very much any more in the evenings, sounded like news when I just heard it the first time.

    I wasn't going to watch his "farewell" at the end of the news, but got caught up in it anyway. I loved the round of applause he got from the crew on the set. I must admit, I cried a little.

    He's not totally gone, he'll still be on "60 Minutes".

    He should have been kicked off the air a long time ago.

    At least he's fading now.

    This is one time I wish I had TV so I could applaud his stepping down. It's about time and should have happened years ago. :yeeha:

    Dan Rather can Thank Dan Rather for his early demise. Plain and simple.

    CBS really bashed Bush for using the 9/11 for his re election.A flag drapped coffin was shown and a shot on Airforce One.They where not going to subject the people to such horror!! guess what his best newscast was all about?Now it's ok ;)
    They didn't play the clip where in 86 he pompiously stated "The majority of the Russian people don't want western style democracy :haha: :haha: :haha:
    Good night Dan turn the lights out when you leave.
