Dan Rather: CBS ‘Folded’ Under Pressure From White House

Former “CBS Evening News” anchor Dan Rather is still standing by the story that ended his decades-long tenure at CBS News.

In an interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America” to promote his new book Rather Outspoken, Rather maintained that the story he reported on “60 Minutes” about Former president George W. Bush‘s Texas Air National Guard service was true.

“My attitude is, sometimes things in journalism go bad, but is is important not to get baffled, not to be afraid and never to quit,” Rather said. “Because of that story, they put heavy pressure on the corporate entity, and the corporate entity folded.”
