Republic. I like the sound of the word. It means people can live free, talk free, go or come, buy or sell, be drunk or sober, however they choose. Some words can give you a feeling that makes your heart warm. Republic is one of those words. - John Wayne

60 Minutes II canned; fake Guard report to blame and not to blame
by Bonjo
CBS said Wednesday it is cancelling the Wednesday edition of "60 Minutes," insisting the decision was made because of poor ratings and not last fall's ill-fated story about President Bush's military service.

"This was a ratings call, not a content call," [CBS Chairman Leslie] Moonves said Wednesday.
The fact that they have to tell us it's NOT about the content says something.

"No, it has nothing to do with the fradulent story we ran in an attempt to derail a presidential re-election. Nor does this have anything to do with the forged documents we used to smear the man who was overwhelmingly re-elected by the American people only weeks later!"

You would think after his years at the helm of CBS, Moonves would understand one simple fact about success in television:

CONTENT = RATINGS.

With that I return to my adventures in capitalism.
