CBS has announced that its investigation into the 60 Minutes fake document scandal won’t be completed until after the election:
Les Moonves, the co-president of CBS parent company Viacom, told an analyst meeting that the review of the CBS “60 Minutes II” report being done by former Attorney General Dick Thornburgh and retired Associated Press chief Louis Boccardi had no timetable for completion. But he said he did not want it to interfere with the Nov. 2 election.
“Obviously, it should be done probably after the election is over so that it doesn’t affect what’s going on,” he told a Goldman Sachs media conference in New York.
A CBS spokeswoman had no immediate comment on the statement. But she pointed out that when CBS News President Andrew Heyward named Boccardi and Thornburgh to conduct the investigation of the Sept. 8 report, he said he hoped it would be completed in weeks rather than months.
Well, CBS certainly wouldn’t want to influence the election by revealing how its news department conspired with the Democratic National Committee to slander the President and his commanding officers in the Texas Air National Guard in hopes of influencing the election.
