ABSTRACT
This article reports that CBS News Inc., in its haste to air the controversial television program "60 Minutes II" report about U.S. President George W. Bush's service in the National Guard, got things backwards. The network was chastised this week in an independent report for showing myopic zeal in pursuing the story, which was quickly challenged by Internet bloggers and then jumped on by the mainstream media. Heads have rolled at CBS and Dan Rather, managing editor of the network's news shows and the on-screen talent for the Bush story, will retire soon.
