“Ex-CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather has filed a $70 million lawsuit against his former network, parent Viacom Inc. and several of his ex-bosses, claiming they violated his contract and damaged his reputation, a published report said Wednesday.”
No, actually you damaged your own reputation Danny boy for running a phony-baloney hit-piece crock-of-a story based on obviously forged documents. Documents that a bunch of dudes sipping bear, sitting at home on their couches with laptops figured out were fake in just a few hours. Oh – but it didn’t stop there. Then you further buried yourself by stridently defending the documents authenticity for two weeks even though there was clear evidence that the documents were typed in Microsoft Word then run through a photocopier several times to make them seem old.

Bravo for playing the victim though and then bringing a law suit. How original.
