Dan Rather is finished. Great news. He will anchor CBS until March.

But who will replace him?



In many cases such as this, especially those involving liberals or neoconservatives, I would be quite glad to see a media figure go. However, when I was watching the news growing up, Dan Rather was the one who has always been on... He’s been there for all these years. And I am someone who typically does not like change.



(Perhaps this is how some people may have felt about Walter Cronkite... even if they didn’t agree with him. But I don’t know - that was before my time.)



Didn’t Connie Chung used to be a co-anchor for that show or something? (I remember what happened with her and Kathleen Gingrich... Some time after that, she was canned.) Have they decided yet who will replace Rather as the anchor for the CBS Evening News?

Conservatives should wish him still there. He is clearly an albatross. His successor may well be worse than he, and it may be more difficult to smoke him out.

Question: When all of the tv news outlets look like Fox News will conservatives still want to play beleagured victims of "liberal media bias"? And if so, how will they pull it off?? Sort of a paradox to be victorious victims, isn’t it?
