After decades in the television news business, Dan Rather says he remains a journalist who seeks the truth.
The venerable former CBS News anchor's reputation was forever altered when he tussled with his longtime former employer regarding a story that questioned then-president George W. Bush's military service. That struggle is now being dramatized on the big screen with Robert Redford starring as Rather in Truth.

ENDED: His voice slightly hoarse, Dan Rather, 73, was all business for the first 20 minutes of Wednesday's broadcast – his final appearance after 24 years – on CBS Evening News. Then he recalled what he called the most important story of his career – the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. He opened the news that evening by saying, "You will remember this day as long as you live." He thanked viewers at the end of Wednesday's newscast, then mentioned Sept. 11 survivors, tsunami survivors, the American military, the oppressed, the sick and fellow journalists in dangerous places. "And, to each of you," he said, "courage." Bob Schieffer, Rather's temporary replacement, will sit at the anchor desk as of Thursday. CBS expects to name a permanent anchor team to succeed Rather in the coming months.

Trite but true: When Dan Rather signs off Wednesday night as the CBS Evening News anchor, he marks the end of an era, harking back as he did to a time when Americans relied on one man to deliver them their news. Few observers back then would have predicted the day of a 24-hours new channel, let alone several of them. Not to mention the Internet.

REASSURED: Former President Bill Clinton, who will undergo a low-risk medical procedure on Thursday to remove fluid and scar tissue from the left side of his chest, told reporters in Washington on Tuesday: "It'll knock me out of commission for a week or two, and then I'll be back to normal. I'm not in too bad a shape," he added. "I feel good." The procedure, to take place at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center, comes six months after he underwent quadruple bypass surgery. Clinton, 58, will remain hospitalized for three to 10 days and is expected to make a "full functional recovery," doctors said.
