NEW YORK (AP) - CBS News has set up a two-member panel to
investigate what went wrong with its story on President Bush's service in the Texas Air National Guard.
One member will be former Attorney General Dick Thornburgh. The
former two-term Republican governor of Pennsylvania served as
attorney general in the administrations of Ronald Reagan and George
H. W. Bush.
The other member is former Associated Press chief executive Louis Boccardi. He retired last year as president and CEO of The AP and served on the panel that probed operations at The New York Times in the wake of the Jayson Blair scandal.
CBS News admitted Monday that it couldn't authenticate documents on which "60 Minutes" based a story that questioned Bush's Guard service during the Vietnam War. Many critics consider the documents to be fake.
