From the whodathunkit? files: Dan Rather suing CBS
Rather believes that CBS made him a scapegoat when he bit into a story about US Prez Bush's unspectacular military service that turned out to be a canard. Rather and other bitten biters struggle hard to avoid the obvious lesson: In the age of the blogosphere real experts will examine your work. Yes, yes, poseurs, fakers, and combox morons will also examine your work. But so? They don't matter, because the delete key is only a couple of inches from your right hand. But you can't just delete your own life.
UPDATE: Here's Jonah Goldberg's take on it.
