Dan Rather’s Media Tour: “Independent Journalism” & “Operating Without A Net”

The Associated Press reports: “Former CBS anchor Dan Rather said Tuesday he will be the ultimate authority on a weekly news program he’ll begin in October on HDNet for owner Mark Cuban, promising ‘independent journalism.’

While he carefully framed his remarks, saying they were not intended to reflect criticism of his former longtime employer, Rather described himself as moving from an environment of corporate accountability to freedom.

The ‘difference here is the chain of command begins and ends with me… You could say it’s like operating without a net, but I don’t see it that way,’ Rather told a meeting of the Television Critics Association.”
