One of the preeminent journalists of our time, Dan Rather has seen it all in his storied career. He covered Hurricane Carla live from the Galveston Seawall (setting the blueprint for future storm reportage), was the first TV journalist to report that JFK was assassinated, accompanied Nixon to China, succeeded Walter Cronkite at the “CBS Evening News” and won every prestigious journalism award there is.
In Rather Outspoken,
Dan Rather looks back on his life in the business to discuss the stories, big and small, that made his career so unforgettable. Told in the straightforward and conversational manner that set him apart from his peers, the book includes discussions on everything from how he earned the nickname “Hurricane Dan” and his coverage of the JFK assassination to the Abu Ghraib story, the George W. Bush Air National Guard controversy and his dismissal from CBS.
Packed with intriguing anecdotes about the many personalities Rather interviewed or worked with over the years, the book also includes never-before-revealed personal observations and commentary, including his thoughts on the state of journalism today, and what he sees for its future.
