Time;10/11/1976, Vol. 108 Issue 15, p90
The article reports on Daniel Schorr, the CBS News Inc. correspondent who was suspended by the television network because he handed a copy of the Pike committee report to "Village Voice." It mentions that Schorr defended himself through the First Amendment rights during a trial before the House ethics committee. It states that the committee determined not to penalize Schorr while CBS News appeared that it was prepared to accept him back, but it never did. It says that Schorr passed his resignation to CBS President Richard S. Salant for he was afraid that the network would terminate him after his performance over the ethics committee had vanished. It adds that some of the CBS News executives were still mad over the comments of Schorr concerning the students of Duke University.
