What If?

Consider the following article from The New York Times and imagine if the target wasn't CBS News:

...The Bush Administration CBS News suffered a crushing blow to its credibility yesterday because of a policy broadcast that has now been labeled as both factually discredited and unprofessionally promoted produced.

"This should never have happened," said Colin Powell Leslie Moonves, the outgoing Secretary of State CBS chairman who announced the impeachment dismissals of the president, vice president, Secretary of Defense, and National Security Advisor four executives yesterday in the wake of an independent special prosecutor's panel's report. The prosecutor panel found that the Bush administration "60 Minutes" policy regarding Iraq program that dealt with President Bush's service in the Texas Air National Guard was full of outright lies, distortions, misstatements, fear mongering, cheap political manuevering, and just plain wrong--not to mention an appalling failure unfair and misleading after being pushed upon the public rushed to broadcast without proper consideration of the consequences for Iraqi civilians, the US military, the tax payers, and the general public vetting.

Just wondering...
