A New STD?

I couldn't let this pass without posting it. Former CBS producer Mary Mapes, who was at the center of the 60 Minutes II story about George W. Bush's military record that cost her her job and forced the premature removal of Dan Rather as anchorman of the CBS Evening News has a new book out called Truth and Duty: The Press, the President, and the Privilege of Power. She's extremely mad at some people at CBS including Les Moonves of whom she says "He doesn't know journalism from dirt farming." But here's the quote about Moonves (who is married to Morning Show host Julie Chen) that prompted this posting:
I used to say everything Les knows about journalism had been sexually transmitted. Now I know even that hasn't taught him much.
