((Most of the comments were along these lines...A viewer from Salem (Robin Robertson) writing:"I have blocked ALL CBS programming...due to the obvious lies presented by Dan Rather on 60 Minutes. CBS will continue to be blocked out in this household until Rather is gone and CBS presents the news in a balanced and unbiased way."
From Roanoke (Danny James) another said: "...until this mess is cleared up and Dan Rather and others in authority at CBS take responsibility and resign I am not watching any CBS programs or local WDBJ 7 programs. I believe this borders on treason and I am ashamed of all involved."
Another disappointed viewer wrote from Marlinton, West Virginia (Bob Keller)..."CBS News is worse than the supermarket tabloid papers. If you ever expect me to be a CBS News viewer again a complete housecleaning must occur...Plus there must be a new dedication to unbiased news reporting that was once a trusted staple at CBS decades ago."
From Floyd (Wilma Reed): "His arrogance and biased reported have been on the edge for too long and it's time for his resignation. Dan Rather sorry...yeah, sure, sorry he got caught, that's all.:"
From Collinsville (Michael Slate): "I want facts when I watch news programs, not someone's made up slant to help John Kerry get elected. You have lost a viewer!"
Some viewers had a slightly different perspective. A Roanoke man (Bill Brinner, Sr.) wrote: "I haven't been a viewer of the CBS Evening News for a number of years. It has never been any problem for me to observe their obvious prejudice. My feeling about WDBJ's news department is just the opposite. Your coverage is excellent and your current on-air staff never appear to express their personal opinions either vocally or by mannerisms."
Another Roanoke viewer (Kathy Finnegan) said: "Just wanted to let you know that I make every effort to avoid Dan Rather's reporting. His style and attitude have driven my crazy for years...Please know that there are many of us who appreciate your professional presentation of the news and your recognition that the viewing audience is not comprised solely of hysterical blithering idiots."
And there were a couple of viewers who came to a different conclusion (Matt R. Cundiff, Lynchburg): "Those that are screaming for Dan's head are trying to move the debate away from the issues of the President's integrity and morality. Dan Rather and CBS didn't do the best job of authenticating the documents, but as stated before, the information contained in the documents was correct."
Judging from the volume of mail we received, most of you seem to know how to reach us. But in case you don't, here's how to send us a letter...a fax...or an email.
