CBS News anchor Dan Rather has apologized for serving as a guest speaker at a Democratic Party fundraiser co-hosted by his daughter, Robin Rather, in March. "I made an embarrassing and regrettable error in judgement by going to this event," he said. "It was a serious mistake, which I acknowledge." Rather's participation in the gathering which according to The Washington Post raised $20,000 was in violation of CBS News's ethical standards.
