CBS Ousts 4 For Bush Guard Story
Four CBS News employees, including three executives, have been ousted for their role in preparing and reporting a disputed story about President Bush's National Guard service.
The action was prompted by the report of an independent panel that concluded that CBS News failed to follow basic journalistic principles in the preparation and reporting of the piece. The panel also said CBS News had compounded that failure with a "rigid and blind" defense of the 60 Minutes Wednesday report.
Asked to resign were Senior Vice President Betsy West, who supervised CBS News primetime programs; 60 Minutes Wednesday Executive Producer Josh Howard; and Howard's deputy, Senior Broadcast Producer Mary Murphy. The producer of the piece, Mary Mapes, was terminated.
"We deeply regret the disservice this flawed 60 Minutes Wednesday report did to the American public, which has a right to count on CBS News for fairness and accuracy," said CBS Chairman Leslie Moonves.

The topic is about the Fox News "stand down" story. Should we drag up all the false news stories in the past by Fox, Briebart, NBC etc?

Do you support Unions and collective barganing?,, or do you believe in Private enterprise and competition?
Do you have a strong belief in the Costitution and the second ammendment,, or do you believe that ammendment has to have strict ,oppresive, controlls?

It is far easier to spit on the work of others than it is to produce something better yourself.

Take this topic for instance. From the beginning I have been shaking my head because the other side figures that there are secrets being kept to protect Obama. How about maybe the truth not getting out IMMEDIATELY to protect classified sources??? I just read an interesting article this morning. From the article:
http://xfinity.comcast.net/articles/...1/US.US.Libya/In the first days after the attack, various administration officials linked the Benghazi incident to the simultaneous protests around the Muslim world over an American-made film that ridiculed Islam's Prophet Muhammad. Only later did they publicly attribute it to militants, possibly linked to al-Qaida, and acknowledged it was distinct from the film protests. The changing explanations have led to suspicions that the administration didn't want to acknowledge a terror attack on U.S. personnel so close to the Nov. 6 election, a charge Obama has strongly denied.
On Thursday, intelligence officials said they had early information that the attackers had ties to al-Qaida-linked groups but did not make it public immediately because it was based on classified intelligence. And they said the early public comments about the attack and its genesis were cautious and limited, as they routinely are in such incidents.
Rmoney and Faux try to play the worst kind of politics with a tragedy, and a big part of the population is susceptible to it because they suffer from Obama Derangement Syndrome.

The President, Clinton and Gen Petraeus sat in the situation room in the WH watching in realtime the whole attack for 7+ hours and no help came so thats a BIG problem.
I agree all we can do is vote. Greata had Senators on last night that said no matter who wins this will not go away they will get to the truth.
