Newsman Reflects on Meaning of Patriotism During These Tumultuous Times
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, July 12, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Veteran journalist Dan Rather comes to Live Talks Los Angeles to discuss his new book of essays "What Unites Us: Reflections on Patriotism," co-written with Elliot Kirschner. Rather appears on Monday, December 4, 2017, 8:00pm at The Novo at L.A. Live in downtown Los Angeles. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 14 at 10:00am.
Rather writes on what prompted him to undertake "What Unites Us," which will be published in early November, "I find myself thinking deeply about what it means to love America, as I surely do." At a moment of crisis over our national identity, Dan Rather has been reflecting — and writing passionately almost every day on social media — about the world we live in, what our core ideals have been and should be, and what it means to be an American. Now, in a collection of wholly original essays, the venerated television journalist celebrates our shared values and reminds us about what matters most in our great country. "What Unites Us" will be an instant classic and a must-read for everyone engaged in the urgent national conversation right now.
With a famed and storied career that has spanned more than six decades, Dan Rather has earned his place as one of the world’s best-known journalists. He has interviewed every president since Eisenhower and, over that time, personally covered almost every important dateline in the United States and around the world. Rather joined CBS News in 1962. He quickly rose through the ranks, and in 1981 he assumed the position of anchor and managing editor of the "CBS
Evening News" — a post he held for 24 years. His reporting across the network helped turn “60 Minutes” into an institution, launched “48 Hours” as an innovative newsmagazine program, and shaped countless specials and documentaries. Upon leaving CBS, Rather returned to the in-depth reporting he always loved, creating the Emmy Award–winning "Dan Rather Reports" on HDNet. Now, building upon that foundation, he is president and CEO of News and Guts, an independent production company he founded that specializes in high-quality nonfiction content across a range of traditional and digital distribution channels.
