Rather to Appear on Fox News to Discuss Couric


One day after former CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather took some heat for criticizing his successor, Katie Couric, Rather is scheduled to appear on Fox News Channel Tuesday afternoon.

Rather is scheduled to appear on Your World with Neil Cavuto at 4:20 p.m. (EST) for an extended interview with Cavuto.

On Monday, while discussing Couric’s nightly newscast during an interview with MSNBC, Rather accused CBS of “dumbing it down, tarting it up” by focusing on topics such as celebrity news.

CBS CEO Les Moonvesfired back at Rather Tuesday, reportedly calling the remarks “sexist.”

“She’s been on the air for nine months. Let’s give her a break,” Moonves said, according to Fox News.
