The President of CBS News is David Rhodes. He was hired in February 2011. He was formerly the Vice President of News at Fox "News".
Again, the current President of CBS News was formerly the VP of News at Fox "News".
According to his bio posted at CBS: "Rhodes began his career as a Production Assistant at the newly-launched Fox News Channel in 1996, where he later became Vice President of News. At the network he managed coverage of three presidential elections, wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, hurricanes including Katrina, and was the channel's Assignment Manager on the news desk the morning of September 11, 2001."
That means, as The Nation's Greg Mitchell pointed out at the height of the recent CBS News/60 Minutes Benghazi report controversy (before CBS was finally forced to retract the entire fake story), that Rhodes "was the guy who worked hand-in-glove on the biased, often propagandistic, Fox 'coverage' of the run-up to the Iraq war, the 2000/2004/2008 elections, the Plame affair, the worst years in Iraq, and all other things Bush and Cheney, and so on."
Again, the guy who cut his teeth in the news business, beginning as a Production Assistant and working his way up to become VP at Fox "News", is now the President of CBS News.
Well now, I guess that puts everything into perspective now doesn't it?
Not only did 60 Minutes drink the Kool-aid on the Benghazi story, they have continued to carry the Right Wing water in more thinly veiled attacks against President Obama, including a clearly biased and fact free report on the President's policies on clean energy that aired Sunday night.
You know, and this may be somewhat off topic (But then again not so much), but part of the Seven Mountains Dominionist mandate (The same group behind Sarah Palin's rise to power.) is to infiltrate the secular media and start to change the focus from within to start reflecting Biblical points of view and more Christian friendly political opinions.
I'm not saying definitively that this is a product of that program, but it would not be too far off base to imagine that the Right Wing may have adopted that model as their blueprint for inserting their own sleeper cells into once trustworthy bastions of journalism.
