CBS: Couric Story ‘Unfounded, Gratuitous, Utterly Malicious’

An emphatic denial from CBS after yesterday’s column by Gail Shister in the Philly Inquirer:

“This piece is beyond ridiculous — unfounded, gratuitous, utterly malicious and, most importantly, untrue, as stated unequivocally by CBS News President Sean McManus. It is incomprehensible how a major daily newspaper can base an entire article on unsourced rumor — including from a direct competitor — about what CBS News management is thinking, when those rumors were directly knocked down on the record at the highest levels. Is this where journalism has gone at the Inquirer?”

Sean, why don’t you tell us how you really feel?
