Dan Rather is seeing dollar signs.
Former CBS news anchor Dan Rather filed a $70 million lawsuit Wednesday against the network, former corporate parent Viacom Inc., and three of his former bosses.The chump forgot that the only reason it became an issue is because he pushed it personally. You can't sue for being fired if your termination was a direct result of your own actions.
Rather's complaint stems from "CBS' intentional mishandling" of the aftermath of a discredited story about President George W. Bush's time in the Texas Air National Guard.
Rather is seeking $20 million in compensatory damages and $50 million in punitive damages.
Intentional mishandling my foot. That sounds suspiciously similar to "vast right-wing conspiracy".
