As The Daily Show pointed out, when CBS aired a report based upon false information from a suspicious source, they performed a fast, thorough investigation and demoted or fired those responsible. CBS then publically apologised for the error

However, when the Bush Administration invaded Iraq based on false information from a suspicious source, Mr. Bush handed out medals to those most responsible. (And fired a few underlings so more compliant political pals could take over.)

Yes, those traditional CEO values of denying ever making a mistake, holding others responsible for one's own bad judgement, and firing underlings for their boss's failures are alive and well in the Bush Administration.

It's all about values, isn't it?
