Will Dan Rather get a presidential/media 'pardon' .... and return to CBS

"Rathergate" is the derisive term applied to a set of four documents allegedly written by the former commanding officer of President George W. Bush in the early 1970s, and broadcast on the CBS program 60 Minutes Wednesday, September 8, 2004. The resultant exposure of these documents as forgeries, coupled with a lack of proper news investigating techniques, led to the ouster of four senior producers at CBS several months later, as well as the departure of long-time anchorman Dan Rather, for whom the scandal was named.

Or will CNN be banned from future White House press conferences?

I watched a rather good film about this the other week called Truth. Robert Redford plays Dan Rather.
