Update: Apparently Heyward is going to issue a statement about the Lockhart connection. The powers that be are arguing about the wording. Supposedly 3 pm eastern but we know what happened to their last timeline.
Looks like Mapes is soon to be unemployed if anyone is hiring.
Note about source. The source is extremely reliable BUT not exactly in the inner circle. Still, has some interesting insights.
UPDATE: CBS News said in a statement: "It is obviously against CBS News standards to be associated with any political agenda. As to what actually happened here, it is one of many issues the independent review will be examining."
Not much of a "statement" but OK.
