On CNN's Reliable Sources Sunday, Dan Rather says he thought Brian Williams had a slim chance of surviving the many lies that he was caught making, but with the new “vicious” accusations, he’ll probably be fired.
- Rather on Brian Williams’ future at NBC: “Brian has real friends or what he thought at least were real friends in the absolute upper reaches of the corporation. That stands him in good stead. When I said his chances now are slim to none, and slim may have left town, if slim is still in town, it will be because he has these friends in the very top of the corporation. They would like to keep him. I think they want to keep him. It's in the end, can they figure out a way to do it and move on from it?”
