'60 Minutes' spinoff axed (Matea Gold, May 19, 2005, LA Times)

CBS announced Wednesday that it is canceling "60 Minutes Wednesday," a spinoff of its venerable Sunday night newsmagazine that ignited a crisis at the network after relying on unsubstantiated documents for a story last fall about President Bush's service in the National Guard.

Hopefully CBS pulled out a typewritter to compose the cancellation notice.

Every person I've ever known who became consumed with hatred for somebody else managed to destroy any talent they, themselves, once possessed. Having spent some time in the world of performers, I've seen the downfall of several once-promising actors/comedians because they focused all their attention on trying to bring about another's bad fortune.

Nice of the Peobody Committee to give them their award on the way out.

What is good in life?

To destroy your enemies, to see them driven off the network, and to hear the lamentations of the pundits.

"Unsubstantiated documents." The MSM will never acknowledge they were forgeries.
