CBS Execs Fired over Bush '60 Minutes' Report

NPR's Madeleine Brand speaks with NPR's David Folkenflik about the decision by CBS News to fire four executives connected with a 60 Minutes report on President Bush's service in the National Guard. The report pivoted on questionable documents claiming Bush got favorable treatment to join a National Guard unit and avoid combat duty in Vietnam.
