When asked what is the most important part of any news story, Joseph Pulitzer replied, "Accuracy, accuracy, accuracy."

I've always thought that whether it's selling newspapers, a documentary,

Once Michael Moore got awards for Bowling for Columbine, a "documentary" later found to be filled with falsehoods, and received accolades for his "documentary" making up the Presidents "thoughts", I knew there was no legitimacy remaining on the left.

At least it's not another WHINITY post. FReepers are feeling a little pumped up these past few days, deservedly so. You got a problem with that? :o)

Is this a rhetorical question?

I know nobody expects anything from the likes of Ed Bradley, Leslie Stahl, or Don Hewitt, but I am exteremly disappointed by Mike Wallace and Morley Safer. I always thought that those two guys, shameless liberal Democrats though they may be, at least had an old-fashioned sense of journalistic integrity, honesty, and decency. Their silence is deafening.

Great picture. Rather and the CBS brain trust.

I doubt it if they want to hold on to their jobs.

CBS is a fascist organization just like so many media outlets today.

I gather that this post somehow pissed you off.

Too bad, so sad.

Like your little "WARNING" meant something to someone.

Go to bed now.

It will be ok in the morning.

The "staff" will give you a full report on any further 'vanity' posts.

Feel better?

We've all been mad at CBS this week. But the sad thing is that CBS is no worse than ABC, NBC, CNN, or a dozen other major news organizations. They are all riddled with corruption.

You might have hit on something here:

"maybe they figured that if given enough rope Rather would hang himself"

The picture I get from reading Goldberg's book Bias is that Rather rules the news department. Even those who are supposedly his superiors do not buck him. So maybe there is underlying resentment. Maybe some people think it's time for him to go, and if the management wants to take themselves down with him, more power to them. Maybe then we can start with a clean slate.

There once was, but he is no longer at CBS. His name is Bernard Goldberg. For those who haven't read his books, do so, if you want a big dose of the truth.

"Where is that one reporter at CBS with some moral courage?"

There hasn't been one since Robert Troudt or possibly Edward R. Murrow.
