The demise of Dan Rather is all we hear about in the news for the last couple of days. On the one hand, journalistic accountability and integrity is the lesson learned and that’s important, but on the other hand, Dan Rather himself has become rather insignificant in the grand scheme of things.
Twenty years ago, this would have been a big deal. Today, the legacy news media is insignificant. How many people truly rely on the old three networks?s evening news broadcasts anymore? With all of the news options available to us along with these options being pumped into my house 24-hours a day, I don’t care about little Dan Rather.
