Poor Dan Rather, he continues to get less and less relevant with each passing year.
The one time CBS Anchor was holding out hope that the network might ring him up to pitch in with CBS's coverage of the 50th-anniversary coverage of the Kennedy assassination.
Rather waited by the phone, but the call never came.
"I held off doing anything for anybody else for a while, thinking I may be asked to do something (for CBS)," Rather said. "I can't say I had any reason for that hope."
Rather helped organize CBS' plans for President John F. Kennedy's visit to Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963, and as a young reporter was a key component of assassination coverage.
Now 82, he's one of the few reporters on the story that day who's still active in journalism.
He will get the consolation prize of appearing on NBC's "Today" show on Nov. 22, where he might have to explain to Carson Daly who he is.
