CBS Takes Action!

I know that some of you out there surfing the interweb had talked yourselves into believing that CBS News' little forged document scandal was politically motivated and that CBS would never punish anyone danrather for the mishap.

But CBS can get tough. Just a few days after she made the call to interrupt CSI: NY to report Yasser Arafat's death, CBS has fired the producer who made that call.

Even Columbia Journalism Review's Campaign Desk was outraged by this rush to judgment. How could CBS fire this poor woman without the consultation of an independent commission? And if breaking into CSI with real, non-forged news is a firable offense then what about . . . oh, never mind.
