Dan Rather, former "CBS Evening News" host and current star of Mark Cuban's HDNet, has been out promoting his new book, "Rather Outspoken."
In an interview with Piers Morgan on Tuesday, Rather recalled the last conversation he had with George W. Bush after his controversial 2004 CBS News report on the former president's Air National Guard service record.
"I was at the White House for a briefing for reporters, and I asked him a couple of questions and he answered the questions," Rather said. "And then afterward he said to me, 'I hope you'll be happy retired in Austin.' That's my home. I had no intention of retiring in Austin. I have a passion for my work and I plunged myself back into doing work. But that's the only conversation I've had with him since."
Rather also defended the report that led to the end of his network news career.
"We reported a true story," he said. "That's why I'm no longer with CBS News."

“We reported a true story,” he said. “That’s why I’m no longer with CBS News.”
No, Dan. You presented forged documents as originals, and refused to admit your elephantine bias in allowing the agenda to drive the evidence.
You’re STILL a Putz. With a capital P. (IMHO, of course.)
Romney got caught cheating in Virginia. The Bushbots, now called Mittbots, let him off the hook.

"Ah, but the Bush story! That's where I had them. They laughed at me and made jokes, but I proved beyond the shadow of a doubt, and with geometric logic, that's where I . . . . "
