|Much of the finger-pointing at Schieffer and Stahl came out last Friday, I’m told, at a CBS Evening News staff meeting overseen by new exec producer Rick Kaplan…|
At some point, Kaplan asked if anyone had questions. A longtime, respected female producer cleared her throat and asked, ‘How long are we going to take this crap?’
It was a reference to the barrage of ad hominem attacks on Couric and the show.
‘The floodgates opened,’ my source said, ‘and all of a sudden everyone was talking about stuff they’d heard in the office, about all the people who’d said stuff.’
Certain CBS vets were described as ‘treasonous’ for the way they had behaved toward Couric.
‘The staff is behind Katie,’ another source said. ‘They’re mobilized now that it’s coming out about what’s happened inside.’
