Aram Sinnreich, visiting assistant professor of global media at New York University, is available to comment on the recent lawsuit brought against CBS by Dan Rather. Rather’s suit alleges CBS News violated the terms of his contract and committed fraud in its investigation of the infamous “60 Minutes” story on President Bush’s Vietnam War-era National Guard service.

Sinnreich is a media and entertainment industry analyst and journalist. In addition to his role at NYU, he currently serves as co-founder and managing partner of Radar Research, a media and technology consultancy. Prior to that, he was a senior analyst and research manager at Jupiter Research in New York for more than five years (1997-2002).

Named one of 15 “Innovators and Influencers of 2001” by InformationWeek, Sinnreich has appeared as a frequent commentator in the news media, including ABC’s “World News Tonight,” the CBS “Early Show with Bryant Gumbel,” NBC’s “Today Show,” NPR, CNN, CNBC, MTV, BBC Radio, and Fuji TV. He has also served as an expert witness in several court cases, including the recent Supreme Court file sharing suit MGM v. Grokster.
