Holy Toledo! The Imus program had Laura Ingram or someone on (don't recall who offhand) who was livid over the fact that CBS didn't disclose their financial interest in Clarke's book! The chain she described was: CBS owns Viacom, which owns Simon & Schuster, which published Clarke (again, apologies if I'm mistaken - that's from memory). In any event, an egregious conflict-of-interest, especially if it wasn't disclosed on the program. Uhm, yeah, CBS, we can certainly take your reporting seriously now! CBS' bias was a joke before this. They're simply a historical footnote after this.
CBS News' "60 Minutes" has raised eyebrows in journalism circles for failing to disclose its corporate connection to an upcoming book by former White House terrorism official Richard Clarke that was the subject of a segment of Sunday's edition of the newsmagazine... Clarke's "Against All Enemies" is published by a unit of Viacom-owned Simon & Schuster..."
'60 Minutes' Book Segment Creates Stir
Feech, you Magnificent Bastard, I read your Book!
I have a new signature that I'll be using on all of my public postings from this point forward. Or at least until I come up with a better one.
Outstanding episode of the Sopranos this Sunday (the only television show I watch, other than the occasional NCAA basketball contest)... unfortunately, events are conspiring to take me out of pocket for the fourth episode. Apparently, one of the "main characters" is destined to get whacked. I've heard that either Silvio (unlikely, IMO) or Johnny Sac (much more likely) are on the chopping block.
