Pat Oliphant for January 26, 1988
TV: This is the CBS Evening News, Dan Rather reporting... To the cheers of a grateful nation, hard-hitting newsman Dan Rather defended himself brilliantly last evening in a bout with Vice President George Bush. Rather fought off his opponent with a dazzling series of hooks and jabs. Rather, thought by many to be the Messiah, could not be reached for comment. Punk: Courage.
