    Story
    (139)

    Rather - who has won every prestigious journalism award in his distinguished career - discusses all the big stories from his decades of reporting. This very personal accounting includes (but is certainly not limited to) his dismissal from CBS, the Abu Ghraib story, the George W. Bush Air National Guard controversy, his coverage of the JFK assassination, the origin of "Hurricane Dan", as well as inside stories about all the top personalities Dan has either interviewed or worked with over his remarkable career.

    J. James-Long says: "Excellent first-hand exploration of media today"
    "Really enjoyed this book"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Rather Outspoken the most enjoyable?

    The book is a series of stories with such relevance to todays world, and todays news.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved this historical perspective he gave of news events over the past 30+ years, especially his take on the presidents.


    What does Dan Rather bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice is believable and sincere


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The lawsuit with CBS. His perspective on the intrusion of corporations into the newsroom is a sad commentary.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "Amazing!"
    Overall

    Fun and very entertaining! Now I'm sad that its over.
