The former CBS News anchor was reacting to Deadspin's viral video, which has been viewed more than 10 million times in the past two days (between Twitter and YouTube). "News anchors looking into camera and reading a script handed down by a corporate overlord, words meant to obscure the truth not elucidate it, isn't journalism," he tweeted. "It's propaganda. It's Orwellian. A slippery slope to how despots wrest power, silence dissent, and oppress the masses." ALSO: One Sinclair-owned station said it rejected the announcement.
