I like this bit from Dan Rather’s complaint against CBS:
Especially offensive to Rather, the suit says, was CBS’ refusal to send him to New Orleans to cover Hurricane Katrina two years ago.
“Mr. Rather is the most experienced reporter in the United States in covering hurricanes,” the complaint reads. “CBS refused to send him…furthering its desire to keep Mr. Rather off the air.”
It’s another laundry lawsuit: He’s suing for $70 million because the CBS wardrobe department lost his sou’wester.
