MORNING REPORT

February 16, 1989|ALEENE MacMINN | Arts and entertainment reports from The Times, national and international news services and the nation's press

How would CBS anchor Dan Rather feel if Japanese-owned Sony, which last year bought CBS Records for $2 billion, wanted to buy the CBS Television network? When Rather was asked that Wednesday in New York at a Japan Society lunch to publicized CBS News' coming big-scale trip to Japan, Rather initially joked about it, then said: "I wouldn't have any problem with it. We live in an interdependent economic world." Rather later said he thought it unlikely that Sony would try to buy the network, since CBS Inc. President Laurence Tisch frequently has said the network is not for sale.
