The News Media in the News

The media has been making much of the news the last couple of days.

Randi Rhodes has quit working for Air America, deciding she’d rather quit than apologize for calling Hillary Clinton a “f*cking whore.”

Some portions of Dan Rather’s suit against CBS have been thrown out,  but three of the seven counts will go on. This includes  $70 million claim for compensatory and punitive damages  for breaching his contract.

Besides facing this suit from Rather, things are not going well for CBS News. There is speculation that Katie Couric will be leaving as anchor at CBS after the election, with ratings remaining poor. CBS News, once a major news organization, is also talking with CNN about outsourcing some of their news gathering to them.
