Online Programming Comes Of Age With Dan Rather
Sure he's 74 years old and was dumped from CBS. But Dan Rather is still a major figure in news. He's doing a silly nothing of a documentary show on HDNet, he's popped up on Chris Matthews's news show to keep his face visible (and refused to be id'd as a former CBS news anchor), and he's doing Larry King for the same reason. But the big news will be if Rather joins AOL to provide original programming and overseas their broadband news service. Online programming will have come of age.
