Tick Tick Tick


This smells funny:

Viacom co-president Leslie Moonves told an investors conference Tuesday that results of an independent investigation into what went wrong with its CBS News "60 Minutes" report "obviously … should be done probably after the election is over so that it doesn't affect what's going on."

Regardless of what the meaning of the word "it" is (either "the election" or "the investigation"), by this logic, you either A) don't believe you are capable of delivering a factual investigation in a partisan atmosphere, B) are somehow worried about the impact your reporting could have on an election, or C) both. None of which seems like the proper comportment for a news organization that takes itself (too) seriously.
