CBS Fires Four Over Forged Memos

The big news on the radio this morning (I got to listen to KPAM for an hour and forty-five minutes on my commute in this morning) was CBS firing three executives and a producer over the Rathergate Memos. The blurb from the Wall Street Journal in my inbox this morning read thus:

CBS fired four employees—including “60 Minutes” producer Mary Mapes—after an independent investigation into a report about Bush's service in the Texas Air National Guard found that “basic journalistic steps were not carried out in a manner consistent with accurate and fair reporting.”

This should read as a massive victory for the blogosphere. More later.
