Connie Chung is fired as CBS News co-anchor

American journalist, anchor and reporter Connie Chung has an immense amount of experience in her field of work. She has hosted her own shows, conducted a great deal of interviews and has continuously anchored shows. For someone of her experience what was to come seemed unexpected.

On May 20th 1995, Connie Chung was fired as CBS News co-anchor. Her then co-anchor Dan Rather was surprised at the news that she had been fired. She had been working in that position for about 2 years and then she got the cut.

Connie did not accept this though, she was charging for sexism, but other female workers believed she was being dramatic.
