I may start blubbering!

While doing the "intensive research" required for the previous post I was struck by the lead item at Page Six:
DAN Rather's eyes welled up with tears when Barbara Walters praised "my wonderful colleague" and told him, "You have the support of all of us here."

The crowd Wednesday night at ABC's Times Square Studios who honored Walters on her retirement from "20/20" after 25 years included bigwigs from all three networks, including Rather's boss, CBS News president Andrew Heyward.
It's no surprise to even the most casual observer that he has their support. They're all peas from the same pod. Although by following the link, it doesn't appear that Dan and Andy are exactly bosom chums anymore.
