He’d Rather blog

Dave Winer interviews Dan Rather and reports that he may blog. He says CBS discourages that now.

This is a case for Public Eye: What’s the policy for journalists blogging at CBS? If Rather wants to blog, will you set one up for him?

I was told sometime ago that Rather was considering blogging in the midst of Rathergate. If he had — if he had faced the people who added information to his story — he might still be employed today. No, blogging is not a cure-all. But dealing directly with people who know more than you is.

: Dave also reports that Rather choked up when talking about Edward R. Murrow. Perhaps he just regrets that George Clooney won’t make a movie about him.
