Heyward Came “This Close” To The Ax

New York tells the story behind the Memogate report:

> “Heyward has reportedly told associates that he came “this close” to being fired by Moonves himself, supposedly holding his thumb and index finger less than an inch apart.”

> “This is the worst thing I’ve ever seen in 55 years of working for CBS News,” Don Hewitt said a few hours after Josh Howard was asked to leave.

> “Moonves failed to comprehend or address the more subtle truths revealed in the investigation,” and most importantly, “Moonves forgot to administer justice according to that ancient Greek proverb: The fish stinks from the head.”

> Also: Page Six says Mary Mapes will chat with Diane Sawyer.
