Eight months after broadcasting a report critical of President Bush that was later disavowed, CBS said today that it had canceled the Wednesday edition of "60 Minutes."
The announcement was made this morning by Leslie Moonves, the chairman of CBS, at a breakfast meeting with journalists in advance of a presentation later today to advertisers.
Already ranked among the lower-rated programs on television, the magazine program was further imperiled after it broadcast a report in September that purported to raise new questions about President Bush's Vietnam-era National Guard service. After initially defending the report, the network announced that it could no longer vouch for the documents on which it was based.

I guess this is the last consequence to be realized from CBS's false report on Bush's guard service. Although they say it's unrelated, I'm sure the ratings never recovered after they plunged over this story. I wonder how much a role Dan Rather will really have left at CBS now.
