You're FIRED!

The investigation into the Rathergate Memo story has been released (PDF), costing the jobs of 4 members of the Wednesday 60 minutes team.
The network fired Mary Mapes, producer of the report; Josh Howard, executive producer of ``60 Minutes Wednesday'' and his top deputy Mary Murphy; and senior vice president Betsy West.
Rather was spared, since he is stepping down anyway. It will be interesting to see how much time is spent on this evening's news telecast to report their investigation.

in addressing the Memos, specifically:
Although the panel said it couldn't prove conclusively the documents were forged, it said CBS News failed to authenticate them and falsely claimed an expert had done so when all he had done was authenticate one signature.
I am sure Powerline will have a detailed response, but nothing is up yet. (Here is Powerline's take)


UPDATE: The Captain fires the first volley from the Right
