Dan Rather at War

March 23, 1991

See Dan Rather. See Dan in Kuwait City. See Dan wander around a makeshift Iraqi bunker. See Dan play with live ammo. See Dan make a fool of himself.

I saw it, but I didn't believe it. Rather, the only voice of integrity during coverage of the '89 San Francisco earthquake--the only TV journalist who didn't exploit that tragedy--had suddenly lowered himself to doing a Geraldo Rivera imitation.

Rather was lucky; he could have blown his arm off playing with the unspent ammunition. Instead, he only blew his credibility.

See Dan? I'd Rather not.
