Dan Rather filed a $70 million lawsuit against CBS for failing to back him up on the Bush “National Guard documents” story that death-spiraled into Fiction City.

At what point does the “I’ve always been a fierce investigative reporter who always checks his facts” collide with “it was somebody else’s fault for not properly vetting the story”?

Ol’ Dan would have earned back a little respect if he’d have just apologized and moved on, but now he’s like the mayor of that town in the movie Jaws, standing over the third half-eaten corpse in a week and bitching at the City Council for not backing him up on his “boating accident” story.
