CBS talked turkey – and football – in a statement issued after a blackout on DISH of CBS and CBS-owned Pop, CBS Sports Network and the Smithsonian Channel. Calling the dispute “yet another example of the company punishing its subscribers instead of negotiating a fair carriage deal,” CBS added, “DISH subscribers are in jeopardy of being without CBS over the Thanksgiving holiday, which would mean they would miss CBS Sports’ NFL and SEC football coverage beginning Thursday, November 23 with the Thanksgiving Day game … as well as Sunday’s NFL Doubleheader; and SEC Football on Friday and Saturday.” Dish SVP and deputy general counsel Jeff Blum responded by labeling CBS’s demands “a greedy attempt to extort more money from our customers.”

This is not good for audiences and it’s not good for democracy.” The DOJ sued to halt the deal on Monday.

Shortly after CBS This Morning’s Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell addressed the absence of suspended co-anchor Charlie Rose on Tuesday’s show – “This is a moment that demands a frank and honest assessment of where we stand and, more generally, the safety of women,” said O’Donnell –  CBS fired Rose. In a letter, CBS News president David Rhodes called revelations about Rose’s behavior on his PBS program “extremely disturbing and intolerable,” adding, “CBS News has reported on extraordinary revelations at other media companies this year and last. Our credibility in that reporting requires managing basic standards of behavior.” On Monday, CBS said it was investigating allegations of lewd behavior and sexual harassment against the 75-year-old journalist.

That is why we are moved to quickly and directly affirm that after years of working with him, we would like to acknowledge that not one of us ever experienced any inappropriate behavior; and mention our sincere appreciation that he treated each of us with the utmost respect and regard.”

The Lost Tapes: Patty Hearst premieres Sunday, November 26 at 9p on Smithsonian Channel, and David Royle, EVP of Programming & Production, Smithsonian Channel, calls it “the most gripping account of a shocking event, and of an extraordinary time in American history.” What makes it stand out? “Director Tom Jennings has uncovered audio tapes and film that haven’t been seen or heard since the 1970s,” Royle tells Cynopsis. “I found it just chilling to hear Patricia Hearst, the kidnapped heiress’s own voice on audio tapes that were released by the Symbionese Liberation Army. It’s startling when you realize how young she was at the time, a mere sophomore at the University of California. The Lost Tapes approach to story-telling means that you are immersed in the events, watching them unfold in front of you – it’s left to you, the viewer, to connect the dots, decide what to think, and how to judge the participants in those intense times.”
