In September 1986, Rather attempted unsuccessfully to turn the phrase into a regular CatchPhrase similar to "That's the way it is" by predecessor UsefulNotes/WalterCronkite. Instead, the attempt, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GWgL5W0b6k0 particularly a botched attempt to say it in Spanish]], led to Rather dropping it after a week.[[/labelnote]]
