John Podhoretz in The New York Post:
I don’t accept the apologies of Rather and CBS News, in part because they haven’t really been offered. They’re trying to get themselves out of a hole, and they’re only digging it deeper.
And what Rather did yesterday was beyond forgiveness. He is continuing to argue that the airing of a patently fraudulent effort whose purpose was to change the results of a presidential election was an act of “good faith.”
You know what I hope? I hope Rather doesn’t quit. I hope he isn’t fired. He is indeed the CBS anchor – and now that the boat is taking on water, his dead weight is going to sink it for good.
[Read The Whole Column]The line I used yesterday for Terry McAuliffe applies equally to Dan Rather. The explanations out of Camp Rather amount to nothing more than rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.
