Just a question

CBS wants us to give them the benefit of the doubt when it comes to the question of political bias as the motivation for their errors with the TANG story.

If a Mike Wallace segment on "60 Minutes" collected the same mass of evidence against a corporation accused of racial bias, would Wallace accept the CEO's protestations that bias was not a factor?

Would "60 Minutes" hold the story while the company completed an internal review? Would Wallace blithely accept the conclusions of a review that found that the lack of proof of bias meant that no bias existed?
