Mark Cuban: Dan Rather Reports “Is Kicking A*#”

M Cuban.jpgDan Fleschner, of allDAY.com, interviewed Mark Cuban after Cuban’s appearance on Today this morning. Among the topics: Dan Rather Reports, which airs on Cuban’s HDNet and recently celebrated its first anniversary.

“(The program) is kicking a*#,” Cuban says, adding that “it’s the one news show where we just give him carte blanche…

“He’s just getting back from Cuba, where he was working on getting an interview with Castro. Whether or not it happens, I don’t know. But if that’s what he needs to do to do his best work, then go do it. There’s no corporate interference, there’s no board of directors to deal with, there’s no question about what happens to the stock price. It’s not my call, so I’ve just given him the freedom, and the show’s amazing.

“The response is that it’s the only ‘real’ news show on TV. There’s no entertainment fluff in it.”
