The 4th Media » Dan Rather: Corporatization, Politicalization and Trivialization of the News

This is the first in a series of exclusive video interviews with veteran journalist Dan Rather, former anchor of CBS Evening News, who visited Asia Society Studios in New York City in late June. Rather, 80, currently hosts the investigative news magazine Dan Rather Reports, which airs on AXS TV. Rather’s memoir, Rather Outspoken: My Life in the News, came out in May.

In the segment embedded above, Rather tells me what he believes is the most important news out of Asia today, and whether the media is getting it right. A complete transcript of the video can be found below.
