Pop quiz hotshot: You’re a respected journalist who has been the recipient of numerous awards and honors and find yourself ditched by the network you gave your undying loyalty to for over 40 years. What do you do? WHAT DO YOU DO?
The answer of course, is “Sue the bastards!” which is what Dan Rather is doing to CBS, seeking $70 million in damages, alleging the network made him a “scapegoat” for the infamous story about President Bush’s National Guard service a few years back.
CBS spokesman Dana McClintock has dismissed the claims as “old news” and that the lawsuit is “without merit”
Careful there, Mr. McClintock: Have you forgotten who Mr. Rather has on his side? That’s right beeotch, MICHAEL FUCKING STIPE! What’s the frequency now, Dana?
