Dan Rather,

CBS Evening News anchor, made headlines over the summer for refusing to report the news—or at least what other news outlets deemed newsworthy—about the disappearance of government intern Chandra Levy. He eventually capitulated under pressure from CBS but still devoted much less time to the story than the other networks.
