Guests and Topics for March 9

Here's what is on tap for Wednesday:

"FOX & Friends First"
Starts at 6 a.m. ET

Dan Rather (search) officially gives up his anchor chair. But will stepping down erase memories of the Bush memo mess? We'll ask Les Csorba, author of "Trust."

Michael Jackson's defense team gets a key prosecution witness to admit he lied under oath in a previous case. Does this admission discredit his entire testimony? We'll get the legal lowdown from criminal defense attorney David Schwartz.

And, how will Rather ultimately be remembered? We'll get insight from Dr. Georgia Witkin, FOX News analyst and best-selling author.

"FOX & Friends"
Starts at 7 a.m. ET

As Dan Rather steps down, why are some in the news business saying good riddance? Brent Bozell, president of the Media Research Center, weighs in.

What did the CBS memo-gate incident teach us about the business of journalism? Mike Walker, author of "Rather Dumb," gives us a lesson.

Plus, are CBS executives happy to see the veteran newsman go? We'll get insight from Bernie Goldberg, former CBS reporter and author of "Arrogance."

Will the withdrawal of Syria's troops from Lebanon (search) finally end Damascus' influence over Beirut? We'll ask Richard Murphy, former U.S. ambassador to Syria.

Protesters from both sides of Syrian troop debate have filled the streets of Lebanon. Could this internal struggle destabilize democratic efforts? We'll ask Rep. Jane Harman, D-Calif., member of the House Select Intelligence Committee.

Plus, we'll be joined by Jimmy Bennett, co-star of the new Bruce Willis flick, "Hostage."

And, actress Lea Thompson, star of "Jane Doe: 'Til Death Do Us Part," drops by the studio.

Real journalism: fair and balanced. That's why we're No. 1 — FOX News Channel.
