CBS would be smart to sell the show to one of the other networks and close up shop. Do it before its value has completely disintegrated.

When you drop atom bombs you need to be very careful about collateral damage.

60 minutes is no more. Radiation sickness will kill it.

The old fogeys like Wallace and Safer are noticeably quiet. It is the "new" guys like Kroft - those who haven't been there since Noah let loose the birds - who are speaking up. This dispute sounds generational. The old boys are circling the wagons.

USA Today said it has been unable to trace Ramirez.

All they'd have to do is stop by the fresh fruit aisle at their local supermarket.

On another note, it was inevitable that this kind of internecine warfare would break out at CBS, as people scramble to protect their reputations and exploit the situation to advance their careers, settle old scores, etc.

"Now, when the other one is in trouble, they're piling on. It's unfair, uncalled for and not the way that grown men should act," Hewitt said.

Blinders on? Check.
Bias engaged? Check.

"We've held off from saying it, we've held off from making any comments as long as there was some hope the documents would prove to be real.

 

That's a very telling statement, Stevie...

I have heard this point of view stated a over and over by people I work with. I guess evidence means nothing to them. I wonder how they would feel if they were on trail and this form of "reasoning" was used to convict them. It's so typical of liberalism. Facts mean nothing. What is important is how one feels.

Unbelievable comments from these readers! Never underestimate the capacity of New Yorkers for complete and sheer idiocy.

Hmmm...a male florist who hates Bush.

Homo?

"Now, I think it's our responsibility to try to draw a distinction between the two broadcasts," Kroft said, admitting that the original show had been burned in the past and had learned from its mistakes. "They've done a lot of great work over there ... particularly with the Abu Ghraib story, they didn't rush that story on the air. This one, for whatever reason, they did."

Yeah, were still waiting for one ounce of proof this went, "all the way to the top"!

Wonder what the conversation between Lockhart and Mapes happened. That is where the coordination most likely was.

I think it should be clear that anyone who followed the story and wasn't convinced by Newcomer and the Adobe and Apple font programmers is simply not smart enough to be in the news business.

This constitutes an industry wide IQ test: who was still not convinced of the forgery at the end of 48 hours?

Drawing Kroft's line would be like knifing one's heart in two.

They are one.

"New Yorkers go easy on Dan"

Out of eight "people" quoted, four are from NY, one from PA, and three from NJ.

Close enough for the Daily News, I guess.

What would we lowly Freepers do if we weren't reinforced in our by beliefs by some nondescript idiot saying "it was just a mistake, can't we forgive and forget?"
