Homage To Dan Rather Reinstated

In an article entitled Dan Rather Set To Leave 'CBS Evening News' written today by Associated Press writer David Bauder and published at AOL News, it is reported that at least one CBS affiliate, WWTV in Cadillac, Michigan, was asking its viewers whether or not it should run a prime-time homage to departing CBS news anchor Dan Rather:

WWTV in Cadillac, Mich., said it decided to let viewers vote on whether it should air Wednesday's prime-time tribute, "Dan Rather: A Reporter Remembers," after being inundated with "negative feedback" about Rather.

The CBS affiliate will air something else - it wouldn't say what - if a majority of voters turn thumbs down on Rather. As of Tuesday afternoon, more than 1,000 people had cast ballots with 63 percent voting against Rather, station spokeswoman Tessia Klix said.

Apparently, CBS took offense at the poll and the powers that be at WWTV have issued a mea culpa and WWTV will now air the tribute.
