cutting a dragging anchor loose

The announcement from cBS that Dan Rather plans to step down as anchor and managing editor at cBS Evening News leaves a lot of questions unanswered.

The timing, coming before the delayed report of the investigation of the forged documents story, is certainly suspect.

The network indicated that Rather will stay with the network and, believe it or not, will focus his efforts on investigative stories. Doesn't this send a message to the folks looking into the forged doucments case that Rather is not to be touched?

The millions of folks who were outraged by Rather's bias and attempts to cover up the fact of the forgeries are not going to be satisfied by this action.
