CBS has nothing but the highest regard for the editors and writers at CNET, and has managed that business with respect as part of its CBS Interactive division since it was acquired in 2008. This has been an isolated and unique incident in which a product that has been challenged as illegal, was removed from consideration for an award. The product in question is not only the subject of a lawsuit between Dish and CBS, but between Dish and nearly every other major media company as well.

I believed at the time that the documents were genuine, and I’ve never ceased believing that they are genuine.Former CBS News anchor Dan Rather • Discussing the saga of George W. Bush’s questioned National Guard service, and the documents Rather found which ended an until-then illustrious career with CBS. Years after the fact, Texas Monthly looks back at a case which Poynter suggests was doomed because CBS jumped the gun with sketchy information, from a mysterious source at a cattle show. Rather, meanwhile, is still trying to defend his roughed-up name. Now’s a good time to look back at this story — with eight years of distance from the controversial CBS report that made proportional spacing a political issue, it’s good to reconsider exactly what happened.
It seems that the table is being set for worldwide nuclear war against Israel.Michele Bachmann • Speaking during the CBS/National Journal debate about the situation in the Middle East.
