A few quotables from Dan Rather, courtesy the Oregonian:

On Iraq: “What one believes one knows about Iraq is in direct inversion to how many times you’ve been there.”

On partisanship disguised as news: “Three people sitting in a room shouting at each other may be interesting, it may be entertaining, but it’s not news.”

On the Internet: “Internet news, out of its infancy, now is in the toddler stage. The potential, even on your cell phone, for what we in TV call ‘pictures that wiggle,’ is mind-blowing.”

On Bill O’Reilly: “More complicated, and deeper, than he may sometimes appear on the air.”

On Katie Couric: “What a woman.”
