Scapegoats put up fight

From the New York Observer:

Mr. Howard and two other ousted CBS staffers—his top deputy, Mary Murphy, and CBS News senior vice president Betsy West—haven’t resigned. And sources close to Mr. Howard said that before any resignation comes, the 23-year CBS News veteran is demanding that the network retract Mr. Moonves’ remarks, correct its official story line and ultimately clear his name.

Mr. Howard, those sources said, has hired a lawyer to develop a breach-of-contract suit against the network. Ms. Murphy and Ms. West have likewise hired litigators, according to associates of theirs, and all three remain CBS employees and collect weekly salaries from the company that asked them to tender their resignations.

So the scapegoats aren't going to fall on their sword, eh. (If you'll pardon the mixed metaphor) This should be interesting. After Jordan Eason's resignation the blogosphere tastes blood in the water and my feel is they are ready to flex a muscle or two.  I'm sure CBS would like the story to just go away. Heh, heh, heh. I wonder how many people, organizations, companies or nations had the same wish about some story CBS wouldn't let go?
