GET THEE TO A SYNAGOGUE, DAN
Binyamin L. Jolkovsky
He Rather not apologize to the one he attempted to hurt
Some advice to the embattled news reader
The debate over whether CBS News presented forged documents in an effort to damage President Bush has now turned to questioning if the on-air apology uttered by network's anchor, Dan Rather, was sincere.
Some advice for Rather, who is not Jewish: Get thee to a synagogue fast.
This week Jews find themselves in the Ten Days of Repentance. The period between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur is a time of introspection and making amends. The idea is that one cannot be granted forgiveness from On High until one has first rectified any wrong Down Here.
In one of the very few instances in Jewish Law where there is no hairsplitting, the sages rule that among one of the requisites needed before one may be pardoned for a crime is that the victim must grant forgiveness.
CBS' reputation has been given a black eye to the degree that it's been suggested that that should become the corporation's new logo. Understandably, the network is in damage control mode. But the one person it seems who has not been addressed in this sordid episode is the one who the actual damage was attempted against the President.
I don't know if CBS will ever regain its reputation and ever declining viewership or, for that matter, if it deserves to. But acting like a mentsh,. Rather, would be a first step toward reversing the situation.
You don't have to observe Yom Kippur to grasp that.
