Moonves fires back at Rather


CBS Corporation CEO Les Moonves told the audience at a New York media event yesterday that recent comments by former anchor Dan Rather about the new newscast with Katie Couric were "sexist." Moonves accused Rather of taking a "cheap shot" at Couric with his comments a few days ago on MSNBC that his former network had taken the "CBS Evening News" and tried to "dumb it down, tart it up" to attract younger viewers.
