1968 Is roughed up at the Democratic National Convention, establishing himself as a wuss.

1974 Disses President Nixon during a press conference. When Nixon asks Dan if he is running for anything. Rather replies, "Walter Cronkite's job now and a Senate seat later."

1980 Sneaks into Afghanistan dressed as a mujhadeen, becomes known as 'Gunga Dan.' A young Geraldo Rivera is inspired to become a TV reporter.

1986 Is mugged on Park Avenue by a man who says, "What's the frequency, Kenneth," starting rumors that Rather is an alien.

1987 Walks off the set for 6 minutes to protest a televised tennis game running late, saying, "Only Republicans watch tennis."

1988 Annoys VP George Bush Sr., who asks Dan if he would like his career judged by the 1987 'blank screen' incident. Dan replies that the blank screen incident was one of his most truthful reports.
