“CBS News has a lot to answer for this. There’s a lot of questions, and they’ve answered some of them. I don’t want to add to their burden,” Rather told Piers Morgan on CNN last night. “I know what it feels like to be the correspondent who’s the center of the controversy … but I will make this point: with our story, the one that led to our difficulty, no question the story was true. What the complaint was, and eventually most of us lost our jobs, was ‘okay your story was true, but the way you got to the truth was flawed.’ That’s not the case with this Benghazi story.” Watch:
