Rather Has Considered Suing CBS

By Brian 

When Dan Rather left CBS last month, Rebecca Dana reported that “he has not agreed to rule out legal action against the network.” Here’s what he said on the subject last night:

  KING: Have you ever thought of entertaining a lawsuit?

RATHER: Notice that I pause.

KING: Pregnant pause.

RATHER: I’m not going to talk about that.

KING: But you’re not saying no? I’ll just — I’m being a Dan Rather journalist now. You did not say no.

RATHER: You asked me had I ever thought about it. And the answer is I can’t say that I never thought about it.
