CBS will finally have a decent anchor. They haven't had one since Uncle Walter 'retired'/was shown the door. Dan Rather was arrogant and tiresome...both attributes of a good reporter, but not necessarily as an anchor. Katie Couric was not going to be successful even before she started because she came from a 'morning' news show, and those are considered to be fluff. Besides, look how "cute and pert" she is. She was not allowed to succeed, but she wasn't what I wanted in that chair, either. IMHO, she just didn't have the gravitas to pull it off.

Bob Schieffer was good. I wonder why he was not chosen. But with the history at CBS, he was probably considered 'too old'...the reason Cronkite left/'retired'/was shown the door. CBS has been pretty touchy about being considered the channel the old folks watch.

I quit watching about half way through Rathers tenure. They should have left Cronkite alone.
