Veteran broadcaster DAN RATHER has interviewed every president since Dwight Eisenhower, save for Donald Trump, and has covered the world’s biggest stories of the past six decades. In his book, What Unites Us: Reflections on Patriotism, Rather shares his observations about the American identity, the state of journalism, and the institutions that make up the nation.
