Rather a shame

Dan gets the push. Big surprise. Favorite quote:

"Dan's 24 years at the 'CBS Evening News' is the longest run of any evening news anchor in history and is a singular achievement in broadcast journalism," Leslie Moonves, CBS chairman and co-president and co-chief operating officer of CBS parent Viacom said in a statement.

In history? So he's the longest-serving anchor in the last 15 billion years, then? His was the most lengthy tenure of any news host since spacetime itself was created in the Big Bang, the physical laws of reality coalesced and the glorious fire of creation enabled fundamental particles to form? A gentle fingering of hyperbole from CBS, I feel, but goshdarnit are they proud of him or what?
