"HollyBeej" -Thursday September 20, 2007

Live from Hollywood...
News From Inside the Hollywood Machine

  • Dan Rather filed a $70 million lawsuit in State Supreme Court in Manhattan against former employer CBS alleging the network used him as a "scapegoat" concerning the discredited 2004 story about President Bush's National Guard service. The lawsuit also names CBS President/CEO Leslie Moonves, Viacom Inc. Chairman Sumner Redstone and former CBS News President Andrew Heyward. According to Rather, he filed this complaint based on "CBS' intentional mishandling" of the after effects generated by the story. He is seeking $20 million in compensatory damages and $50 million in punitive damages. CBS issued this statement: "These complaints are old news, and this lawsuit is without merit."
