Dan Rather got a standing ovation in the Big Tent’s DIGG stage on Tuesday after castigating the current structure of the media and the resulting weak news coverage.
“Much of the press is rolling over and playing dead,” the former CBS newsman said. “The American media is in need of a spine transplant.” As he often did on the air at CBS, Rather welled with tears when speaking of American casualties in the war in Iraq. — Joanne Ostrow
