Dan Rather on the decline of investigative journalism

 INSP 17 August 2019

Ahead of a new film about his life, in which he is played by Robert Redford, veteran US reporter Dan Rather reveals the true story of his controversial departure from CBS and blasts the US media for failing to speak truth to power. Increasingly, he says, news organizations are too concerned with the Kardashians to properly cover the stories that matter. “The sense of public service is what’s been drained out of a bunch of journalism of the last 25 to 30 years,” he tells INSP. (2005 Words) - By Adam Sennott
