Did 60 Minutes Rip Off Dan Rather?

By

Last weekend 60 Minutes ran a segment on football players with head injuries that reminded the folks at HDNet of a report Dan Rather did six months ago on football players with head injuries. The resemblance was likely due to the fact that the 60 Minutes segment included interviews with four of the same sources Rather used. It was also about the exact same thing. "I think it just points to the fact that Dan is busting his ass over here, doing some of the best work he’s ever done,” said Wayne Nelson, the executive producer for Dan Rather Reports. It probably also points to the fact that not many people have HDNet. [Observer]
