A fairly ludicrous rumor made the rounds Friday, which had venerable CBS anchorman Dan Rather lending his voice to a British video game.
According to the stories, a press release by UK publisher System 3 Games said Rather would be lending his voice to America's 10 Most Wanted, the European title of the recently released--and roundly panned--Fugitive Hunter: War on Terror. Developed by Black Ops Entertainment and distributed by Encore Software in the US, Hunter lets gamers beat such international nasties as Osama bin Laden into submission and/or a bloody pulp.
"What are you talking about?" said a CBS News representative when queried by GameSpot about Rather's involvement. A call to Black Ops' offices yielded similar results. "I don't know anything about that," said a baffled spokesperson at the California-based developer, "nothing even close."
