I remember Dan Rather from when I was a kid watching the CBS evening news with my parents. Now in his 80’s, Dan Rather tells his story sweeping through President Eisenhower to Obama along with some of the biggest news stories of the times. His lifelong, tenacious belief to report the truth no matter what, regrettably led to his being fired from his long standing anchor position at CBS. Some of the highlights of his autobiography, besides his suing CBS, are his insights on the war in Afghanistan and the cryptic role Pakistan played in the death of Bin Laden. Narrated by the American icon himself, Rather Outspoken, raises awareness on how the media increasingly controls what we see and hear in the news. Informative and inspiring.
