    I knew it. I remember when Peter Jennings replaced Frank Reynolds, who also passed away. Both were excellent news anchors.

    Weird, cause I remember watching him when I was too young to understand why Dad liked the news so much.


    He was good.

    I'd rather it had been Rather. Jennings was cool.

    Peter Jennings was great.

    Anyone see the bit he did with Jon Stewart during the elections, where they were making fun of Dan Rather's book?

    What a bummer, He was very good and 67, that's pretty early to have to go.
    I caught him on the Daily show with Jon Stewart, they both seemed like old college buddys shoot'n the sh!t; that was a good episode.

    I saw him on the floor of Giants Stad. at a Grateful Dead show
    sometime early 90's(I think). Nice guy. Talked for a few minutes.

    Best moment still has to be the Baba Boohey/I see O.J. phony phone call
    during the O.J. chase.

    I saw the clip last night from when he announced he had cancer. Man, he sounded like ASS. Too bad, he's up there with Brokaw. I agree about Rather.

    I get all of mine from news.yahoo.com

    Fox hired the idiot quads. (O'Reilly, Combs, Hannity, Geraldo) I never have turned it back to them since.

    Are you making fun of the anti-Rather crowd?


    I watch Fox all of the time. I just somehow did not expect that from you.

    I try to keep an eye out for bias. There is some on Fox, but not usually the reporting, just the commentary. Most of the extreme left thinks Fox is radical right. Depends on perspective, I guess....
