Rather Outspoken

From controversy to hurricanes and civil rights - Dan Rather speaks out on his life in the news

Dan Rather has had a long and distinguished career in journalism, which has taken him from local fame in Texas, through the ranks of CBS News and 60 Minutes to today, where he’s the managing editor and anchor on Dan Rather Reports.

Listen to the complete Dan Rather interview with Prime Time Radio host Mike Cuthbert by clicking on the audio player below.

His judgment has been questioned, most famously for how he used the Killian Documents, about President George W. Bush's military service, in a story.

But however you examine Rather's record, his accomplishments speak for themselves: he’s earned every major journalism award. In his memoir, Rather Outspoken, the newsman sheds light on some of the highlights and challenges in his long career.
