 GIVEAWAY ENDED
RATHER OUTSPOKEN
My Life in the News
WRITTEN AND READ BY
DAN RATHER

ABOUT THE BOOK:
This memoir by Dan Rather -- one of the most pre-eminent journalists of our time -- is told in a straightforward and conversational manner so that you hear his distinctive voice on every page. Rather, -- who has won every prestigious journalism award in his distinguished career -- discusses all the big stories from his decades of reporting. This very personal accounting includes (but is certainly not limited to) his dismissal from CBS, the Abu Ghraib story, the George W. Bush Air National Guard controversy, his coverage of the JFK assassination, the origin of "Hurricane Dan" as well as inside stories about all the top personalities Dan has either interviewed or worked with over his remarkable career.

The book will also include Dan's thoughts and reflections on the state of journalism today and what he sees for its future, as well as never-before-revealed personal observations and commentary.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Dan Rather is an award winning journalist who anchored CBS Evening News for decades. He was born in Wharton, Texas and graduated from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, where he wanted to play football. He worked at local radio station KSAM in Huntsville during his college years. Following graduation he worked for radio station KTRK in Houston and went to work for KHOU-TV, the CBS affiliate in Houston. In 1961, he covered Hurricane Carla for KHOU-TV in Houston, Texas, and it caught the eye of CBS News executives, who hired him in 1962. He was in Dallas on November 22, 1963 and was CBS' lead anchor from Dallas during the coverage of the Kennedy assassination. In 1975, he became co-anchor of "60 Minutes" (1968) and in 1981 was selected to replace Walter Cronkite as anchor of "CBS Evening News with Dan Rather" (1981), where he remained as anchor until 2005. The Communications Building on the campus of Sam Houston State University is named for Rather. He is one of America's most decorated news journalists of all time.

I have seen him do interviews about this book. He has some fascinating insights about what goes on behind the scenes in broadcasting. I really miss him, I always enjoyed him. There aren't many journalists like him left in the field. I would love to have this book.

I miss watching Dan Rather. I remember his coverage at the presidential conventions and his coverage during the Viet Nam war.

I read several of the features on his site. I really like that he patterned himself after Edward R. Murrow and Erik Severaid to name a few. I miss that kind of reporting.
