Dan Rather and CBS tried to influence the outcome of our presidential election with rank propoganda. That is un-American! Viacom has been irresponsible by responding niether quickly enough nor forceful enough. Therefore, Viacom is an un-American company, and they do not deserve the investment dollars from true Americans. Sell this disgusting company's stock.

Don't take it personally, but this is the stupidest thing I have read on this board in years.

Dan Rather and CBS thought they had a news story. They broadcast it. They had not done their homework properly and they were called on it. They retracted the story and admitted the error.

Hey, wouldn't it be great if George Bush and Dick Cheney could do the same thing? But no, they're still out saying they did exactly the right thing, and if they knew then what they know now, they'd still have done the same thing.

Which is worse? Making a mistake and admitting it, or being pathologically unable to admit you have made an error?
