evwillaolcom 18 May 2005 From The New York Times, full article on the NYTimes.com site: ---- Eight months after broadcasting a report critical of President Bush that was later disavowed, CBS said today that it had canceled the Wednesday edition of "60 Minutes." The announcement was made this morning by Leslie Moonves, the chairman of CBS, at a breakfast meeting with journalists in advance of a presentation later today to advertisers. <edit> Dan Rather will probably be given a slot on the Sunday edition of "60 Minutes" through 2006, according to two people familiar with his contract. <edit> In his remarks, Mr. Moonves stressed the fact that the Wednesday edition of "60 Minutes" had some of the oldest viewers of any program on the network. "This was a ratings call and not a content call," Mr. Moonves said. "I know that's a question."
