I've never liked Dan Rather for just that reason.  I've thought that his
decisions have always reflected his bias and as he has grown older they have
been more and more public and have crossed the line further and further.  He
should have been fired when he appeared at that Democratic fund raiser with
his daughter.

The bloggers are just a wonderful reflection of the democratizing affect of
the internet.
