Rather explained that about a
fourth of the book also discusses
the events that led up to his 2006
departure from CBS after work-
ing various positions for 44 years.
"Yes, in the book, there is also
the unpleasant time of when I
was forced to leave CBS News
after reporting first Abu Ghraib,
a story we broke on a worldwide
basis, and following that Presi-
dent George (W.) Bush's service -
or lack of service - in the National
Guard," he said. "I realized that if
I didn't put those important times
in the book, someone would say I
'ducked and dodged.'"
Rather explained that he has
moved on to his current job at
HDNet, and is content there.
"I think it's the best-sustained
work I've ever done in my career
... I never lost my passion for
news," he said. "So what hap-
pened with the Bush story and
Abu Ghraib and others is well
behind me now."
Rather said understanding
what caused the end of his work
with CBS can help others under-
"At least to this degree, it may
be interesting because it tells
you some of what happens in big
news organizations, what really
happens behind the scenes, as
opposed to what you may think
happens," he said.
Rather also said he thinks
many people have forgotten how
good journalism works.
"Reporters, when they are
at their best, tell tough truths,"
Rather added that reporting of
the civil rights movement in the
1960s is a good example of proper
"I never imagined - I didn't
know anybody who could imag-
ine - mayors, sheriffs, county
commissioners would turn high
pressure hoses and attack dogs on
children who were taking part in
peaceful protests," Rather said.
"And when those images were
brought in the living room, there
was repulsion - not everybody
in the country - but there was a
national consensus of repulsion."
Rather said that people forget
that journalists often must take
flak when reporting controversial
"It's easy to forget at the time
we were doing that coverage, CBS
was called, 'Communist Broad-
casting Company,' ... the camera
crews and others took important
photographs that went in the liv-
ing room and resulted in a nation-
al consensus of outrage," Rather
said. "We tend to forget that, at
that time, that coverage was con-
troversial. CBS took a lot of heat ...
(and) now it's an accepted part of
a national conscience."
Rather explained that good
journalism is often contentious at
the time it is reported, but is also
"You learned in seventh grade
civics class ... that a free press, an
independent, truly independent,
fiercely independent press, is the
red, beating heart of freedom and
democracy," Rather said.
Rather added that currently,
journalism in the U.S. is at risk
of staying completely legitimate
due to large companies with news
divisions. He also hinted at big
businesses cutting deals in Wash-
"Whether that government
is being led at any given time by
Republicans or Democrats, the
huge international corporations
now control more than 80 percent
of our true national distribution of
news in this country," Rather said.
"They need legislation passed,
they need legislation stopped, they
need new regulations that benefit
them, they have favors they need
in Washington, the political pow-
ers in Washington ... they want
of course what I'm going to call
Rather believes that there is
increasing pressure on news orga-
nizations to stop asking impor-
tant, tough questions and that
media is also shifting its focus.
"We have so much important
business to do in Washington,"
Rather said. "Entertainment ven-
ues now almost completely over-
whelm news venues."
Anthony Kataer traveled from
Detroit to attend the event and

he's really articulate," Kater said.
"Even though he's a liberal, you
can't tell that by his coverage."
Kataer added that though
Rather brought up the controver-
sial way he left CBS, he wont hold
it against Rather.
"I don't think we should judge
him for it," he said.

The Winter Classic has become
a "premier event" in the sports
realm and will help the economy
in Ann Arbor and the surround-
ing area, Ouimet said in a press
release on the Michigan House
"More than 100,000 people will
contribute to our local economy by
patronizing our restaurants, stay-
ing in our hotels and purchasing
other goods and services," he said
in the release.
In the release, Ouimet also
acknowledged the Classic's poten-
tial for making the Big House
more famous than it already is.
"Michigan Stadium already is
one of the most recognized sport-
ing facilities in the United States,
and the Winter Classic will help
