Dan Rather, the Captain Ahab of journalism

Ah, Danny Boy. He still can’t let go. You know that lawsuit he filed in September against CBS/Viacom over the fake National Guard/Bush hit piece of 2004? Well, according to TV Newser, oral arguments are being heard today in court.

He’s quoted in yesterday’s Boston Herald warning about the dangers bloggers pose. He speaks from experience:

“When it comes to blogging and some things on the Web, there’s little or no accountability,” said Rather, who covered his first presidential race in 1952. “This is the new American political coverage media. It’s a wilderness, and when you go into the wilderness, there’s always some danger.”

Wonder if Helen “Blame the bloggers” Thomas is filing an amicus brief in his case?
