CBS News had said that it would release the report on its investigation of 60 Minutes’ publication of fake documents about President Bush’s National Guard service early last week. We don’t know why the report’s publication has been delayed, but the Washington Times’ Inside the Beltway says that a few heads are going to roll:
A CBS News insider tells Inside the Beltway “four or five” of the network’s employees face dismissal as CBS prepares to release a “critical” internal investigative report on the use of fake documents in a pre-election story challenging President Bush’s Vietnam-era service in the Texas Air National Guard.
Dan Rather’s head is, presumably, not among them. We’re still skeptical that CBS conducted a real investigation, but there is no point in speculating until we see the report.
