Geraldo: Shame On CBS For Canning Dan

<p>Fox News's Geraldo Rivera came to Dan Rather’s defense on last night’s syndicated &quot;Geraldo At Large.&quot; Teasing an upcoming report on the Rather firing, Rivera let CBS have it: &quot;Still ahead, shame on them. CBS kicks Dan Rather out on the street after <strong>44 years of usually wonderful work</strong>.&quot; Thankfully, later in the show, Rivera's colleague Laurie Dhue reminded viewers of the reason for Rather's axing: &quot;CBS has agreed to let Dan Rather go after 44 years at the network. The 74-year-old newsman has not been on the air much since he stopped anchoring the 'Evening News' a year ago, six months after running a later-discredited story about President Bush's military service.&quot;</p>
