Ed Koch Scotches Critical Comment

August 18, 1991

I just read Josh Getlin's profile of me ("The Ed Koch Show," June 27). I will limit my comments to one overwhelming factual error on the part of Mr. Getlin. He says that I "once criticized news anchorman Dan Rather for allegedly insulting Saudi sensitivities during the Persian Gulf War." That is totally (at) variance with what happened.

I prepared a commentary saying that both Rather and CBS owed the American soldiers and their families an apology for having revealed that the soldiers were being entertained in traditional American vaudeville fashion with women participating in the show.
