    The exec had been at CBS News for 36 years and has been a leading figure at the news division for decades. The tenure of Jeff Fager as the executive producer of 60 Minutes is over. "Jeff Fager is leaving the company effective immediately," read a statement from CBS News president David Rhodes on Wednesday. "Bill Owens will manage the 60 Minutes team as Ingrid Ciprian-Matthews and I begin the search for a new executive producer of the program. 60 Minutes is the most significant news broadcast on television." Rhodes added: "We are fortunate to have incredibly talented journalists in...

    "60 Minutes" executive producer Jeff Fager is leaving CBS News "effective immediately" amid allegations of inappropriate behavior, the company announced on Wednesday. "Bill Owens will manage the 60 Minutes team as Ingrid Ciprian-Matthews and I begin the search for a new executive producer of the program," CBS News president David Rhodes said in a statement. A New Yorker article in August implicated Fager, along with former CBS CEO Les Moonves, in a series of allegations of sexual misconduct at the company. Moonves stepped down from his position earlier this week.
  • Now even CBS doubts a blue wave is coming; can we stop making believe one is coming?

    Warning! “Conservatives” who constantly search for things to be afraid of will not be able to read this all the way through. A report CBS probably wishes it never let see the light of day, says its polling “expert” doesn’t see a blue wave; in fact, a careful reading of the CBS report says a red wave may very well be on its way. CBS has adopted the LA Times/USC Dornsife method of polling by compiling a large sample of respondents who are willing to be polled periodically on a continuous basis. What CBS found is that there is no...

    CBS chairman and CEO Leslie Moonves is accused of sexual misconduct by six women in a New Yorker exposé published Friday, the latest high-profile media figure at the center of allegations of misconduct as a result of the "Me Too" movement. Six women who previously worked with Moonves told The New Yorker's Ronan Farrow that Moonves sexually harassed them, while four described forcible touching or kissing. “What happened to me was a sexual assault, and then I was fired for not participating,” Emmy-nominated actress and writer Illeana Douglas told the publication. “There was the big sell—he was telling me, ‘You’re...

    The CBS CEO, one of the most powerful men in Hollywood, is accused of unwanted kissing and touching in a New Yorker article set to be published Friday. The New Yorker is poised to publish an article by Ronan Farrow that includes allegations of sexual misconduct on the part of embattled CBS chairman and CEO Leslie Moonves, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. A spokesperson for The New Yorker says, “We don't comment on pieces we haven't published." Sources with knowledge of the article say it delves into the broader culture at CBS and will publish later today on the magazine’s...

    CBS has been using NDAs to try and suppress potential sources for an upcoming exposé about Charlie Rose’s sexual misconduct. And top network execs who worked on Rose’s shows are panicking that they’ll be accused of turning a blind eye to his sexual misconduct. We’re told that CBS News president David Rhodes, “CBS This Morning” executive producer Ryan Kadro, “60 Minutes” executive producer Jeff Fager and former “CBS This Morning” executive producer Chris Licht are all terrified about a looming Washington Post investigation that’s now been in the works for months. “There are a lot of executives looking around corners,...
  • FLASHBACK: Group that helped sell Iran nuke deal also funded media (re. Echo Chamber)

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A group the White House recently identified as a key surrogate in selling the Iran nuclear deal gave National Public Radio $100,000 last year to help it report on the pact and related issues, according to the group's annual report. It also funded reporters and partnerships with other news outlets. The Ploughshares Fund's mission is to "build a safe, secure world by developing and investing in initiatives to reduce and ultimately eliminate the world's nuclear stockpiles," one that dovetails with President Barack Obama's arms control efforts. But its behind-the-scenes role advocating for the Iran agreement got more...

    In an odd twist, fellow hosts of “CBS This Morning” turned to their colleague Gayle King — famous friend of Oprah Winfrey — for an interview Tuesday about whether her pal would run for president. If a Winfrey candidacy moves beyond idle chatter, one of the leading figures on a CBS News show that prides itself on hard-nosed journalism would have a conflict of interest on a major story. King attended the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday and said on “CBS This Morning” that she spent several hours with Winfrey after the speech that fueled political speculation. King said her...

    s a youthful looking 42-year-old, Jeff Glor is the youngest anchor of “CBS Evening News” since Douglas Edwards first sat in the chair in 1948. It’s not all they have in common. Edwards was a veteran radio journalist who was asked to move over to television when it was still a young, emerging medium. Glor, who took over the broadcast on Monday, has a mandate to lead the flagship evening newscast into the digital future. The assignment comes as the evening news format is fighting to remain vital in an age when smartphones can provide headlines and video instantly. CBS...

    Charlie Rose’s CBS News career came to an unceremonious end Tuesday when the network fired him over allegations of sexual harassment. "A short time ago we terminated Charlie Rose's employment with CBS News, effective immediately," CBS News President David Rhodes wrote in a note to staff. "This followed the revelation yesterday of extremely disturbing and intolerable behavior said to have revolved around his PBS program. Despite Charlie's important journalistic contribution to our news division, there is absolutely nothing more important, in this or any organization, than ensuring a safe, professional workplace — a supportive environment where people feel they can...

    CBS News boasts of Gayle King having “received numerous awards for her extensive work as a journalist.” Yet this award-winning journalist wants us to believe that she is dumbfounded by the multiple accusations of sexual misconduct against Charlie Rose. Let’s remember: for King, Rose isn’t just some random guy in the news industry. Rose has been King’s co-host of CBS This Morning—someone she literally sat next to and worked very closely with—for going on six years. But on the CBS show this morning, King claimed to be shocked by the Rose revelations: Get the rest of the story and view...

    (full article title: CBS fires vice president who said Vegas victims didn't deserve sympathy because country music fans 'often are Republican') CBS has parted ways with one of the company’s top lawyers after she said she is “not even sympathetic” to victims of the Las Vegas shooting because “country music fans often are Republican,” when discussing the tragic mass shooting that occurred in Las Vegas late Sunday night. This individual, who was with us for approximately one year, violated the standards of our company and is no longer an employee of CBS. Her views as expressed on social media are...

    For anyone who doubts the daily double standard of the news media, just look up CBS show episodes from Sunday, Sept. 10. Up first, "Sunday Morning" host Jane Pauley softly and sweetly served one puffball after another to Hillary Clinton for her book-tour kickoff. That evening, anchor Charlie Rose harshly lectured President Trump's former chief strategist, Steve Bannon, on "60 Minutes." Days in advance, CBS rushed out clips of Rose lecturing Bannon on his dissent from Catholic bishops regarding illegal aliens who entered the country as children. Rose said: "Can I remind you, a good Catholic, that Cardinal Dolan is...

    “Cuba normally gears up quickly for storms with constant advisories on TV and radio urging people to prepare. The Civil Defense, run by a general and the military, jumps into action to evacuate people and animals from low-lying areas, to move food supplies to higher ground, harvest crops quickly and distribute the monthly food rations to people before the storm hits.” (CBS News. Sept. 8.) In fact, as late as the night of Sept. 5th with Hurricane Irma forecast to rake the entire island of Cuba from end to end, many Cubans were completely unaware of the hurricane’s very...
  • Casually Worded CBS Article Depicts Ugly Truth: Iceland Eliminates People with Down Syndrome

    CBS News reported earlier this week that Iceland is leading the world in “eradicating Down syndrome births.” One might be forgiven for assuming that Iceland has developed an innovative treatment for the chromosomal disorder. It turns out Iceland’s solution is much simpler, and much more sinister: using prenatal testing and abortion to systematically exterminate children with Down syndrome. This isn’t progress; it’s eugenics. Prenatal testing is optional in Iceland, but the government mandates that doctors notify women of that option. About 85 percent of expectant mothers undergo the test, and close to 100 percent of those women choose to...

    Scott Pelley is out at “CBS Evening News,” Page Six has exclusively learned. Sources tell us that ‘Poison Pelley’s’ office was being cleared out on Tuesday while the anchor was away on an assignment for the network’s news magazine “60 Minutes.” Insiders tell us that CBS News president David Rhodes “is making [Pelley] move to ‘60 Minutes,’ ” and that the pair “don’t get on.” Another TV insider said while Pelley’s ratings have been down, “There’s also been friction between him and [Rhodes].”

    The U.S. economy under President Donald Trump is already showing signs of great improvement. So if you are CBS News how can you spin this good news into something resembling bad news? You might think this could be an impossible task but on the May 25 CBS This Morning, they managed to put a very creative bad news spin on the good news economy as you can see delivered by Norah O'Donnell in the following video:

    Former CBS News anchor Bob Schieffer on Sunday said President Trump "actually sounded presidential" during his weekend speech to Muslim leaders in Saudi Arabia. “Today you saw a very different President Trump. He actually sounded presidential,” Schieffer said on CNN’s “Reliable Sources.” "You may agree or disagree with what he said, but he sounded like a president. He laid out his vision. He called for help for those in the Muslim world. He was a much different kind of presentation.” The 54-year news veteran said the speech went well “mainly because he stayed on script” and added: “No tweets today,...
