Dan Rather has announced that he will step down as anchorman for the CBS Nightly News in March. He is going to continue to be an investigative "reporter" for 60 minutes. I suppose that the anchor position was getting in the way of his advocacy "journalism." As a full-time 60 minutes reporter, he will no longer be encumbered by facts.

No replacement have been announced, but possible candidates include Baghdad Bob, Michael Moore, or Terry McAuliffe.
