Months, not weeks, after the panel was created to investigate the 60 Minutes II story on the TANG/Killian memos, we have the results.
The biggest results thus far is the dismissal of four CBS employees. Mary Mapes was fired and Senior Vice President Betsy West 60 Minutes Wednesday Executive Producer Josh Howard, and Senior Broadcast Producer Mary Murphy were all asked to resign. Andrew Heyward somehow managed to dodge the bullet and keep his job thus far, but he should have been the first to go.
I have compiled a list of worthy reading regarding the report. I highly suggest the Rathergate.com articles as they are pouring over ever single part of the report and will have more content and commentary than most. As I find more articles, I’ll update the links. If you find one worth reading, comment the link and a hat tip you’ll get.
