Dan Rather is still at it.  The story that brought him down was true, he claims, unlike the one that is the cause of Lara Logan’s difficulties.  On CNN, Rather said:

"I will make this point: with our story, the one that led to our difficulty, no question the story was true...while most of us eventually lost our jobs, it was 'okay, your story was true, but the way you got to the truth, was flawed, the process was flawed’ ... That's not the case with the Benghazi story. Unfortunately, and there's no joy in saying it, they were taken in by a man who was a fraud.

Forged, flawed, fraud … whatever.
