Good News / Bad News

The good news is Dan Rather is retiring from CBS Evening News.

The bad news is that he's going to 60 minutes, where he will surely continue to play fast and loose with the truth.

Dan Rather, the hard-charging embodiment of CBS News who saw his reputation damaged by an ill-fated report on President Bush (news - web sites)'s National Guard service, said Tuesday he will step down as "CBS Evening News" anchor in March after nearly a quarter-century in the job.

Rather, 73, will become a correspondent for both editions of "60 Minutes," saying he looked forward to "pouring my heart" into investigative reporting.

Hey, if Dan wants a job, I think I know the ideal position for him. It's a job he's already been doing anyway, but I understand there will be a position opening soon. He's just got to fight Howard Dean for it.
