CBS Releases Report And Four Employees

The Independent Panel Report can be found here, and CBS's article detailing the fallout is here.

Asked to resign were Senior Vice President Betsy West, who supervised CBS News primetime programs; 60 Minutes Wednesday Executive Producer Josh Howard; and Howard’s deputy, Senior Broadcast Producer Mary Murphy. The producer of the piece, Mary Mapes, was terminated.

The correspondent on the story, CBS News anchor Dan Rather, is stepping down as anchor of CBS Evening News.

The report is very long, so the blogosphere's reactions may be delayed a ltitle bit. Rathergate has set itself the task of reading through it. I don't know whether I'll get the chance -- I'll probably skim through, do a search on some keywords that might get interesting results.
