[Dan] Rather is one of the most vocal supporters of digital technologies to come out of Big Media; he's also its pariah. His six decades spent covering Watergate, Vietnam, and the end of the Cold War were, for many, wiped out after bloggers called into question a critical piece of evidence, the Killian documents, used in Rather's controversial story about President George W. Bush's military record during Vietnam. Still, the 76-year-old newsman landed on his feet, going to work for Mark Cuban's HDNet.Yeah, called into question. And Rather landed on his feet at HDNet, did he? Look, it would be a comedown for me to work at HDNet (whatever that is), and I've spent most of my life lying drunk in my own filth.
