The article reports on concerns about media ownership raised when U.S. anti-terror advisor Richard Clarke criticized President George W. Bush's handling of security threats. CBS news program "60 Minutes" and Clarke's book "Against All Enemies: Inside the White House's War on Terror," published by the Free Press imprint of Simon & Schuster Inc. both covered Clarke's views against the President. The problem however, is that both, CBS and the publishing house, are owned by New York-based Viacom Inc.
