Who’s Missing From Rooney’s List?

rooney_11-24.jpgTV Week’s Michele Greppi writes in this week’s “The Insider” about a tvnewser noticeably absent in Andy Rooney‘s essay last Sunday on 60 Minutes.

When Rooney gave his list of people who made TV news “good and reliable,” Rooney lists Edward R. Murrow, Walter Cronkite, Tom Brokaw and Peter Jennings. Not listed — Rooney’s former colleague, Dan Rather.

Writes Greppi:

The Insider wishes she could report whether that omission was merely underscoring what CBS News insiders say is Mr. Rooney’s longstanding distaste for Mr. Rather, or whether the omission was a judicious move, given that Mr. Rather is putting CBS News through the legal wringer. But her request for a conversation with Mr. Rooney was met with an official statement that “Andy Rooney’s essay last night speaks for itself.”
