To whom this may concern,

I have been watching 60 minutes and CBS news on KTVT (11) for years. I
regret that I will no longer be able to watch any news programs on KTVT
until Dan Rather and Mary Mapes no longer work at CBS News, and a full
apology has been issued (not the half hearted apology already issued). They
have abused the trust that I and the rest of the public have put in them.
They have either accepted as fact documents of dubious origin out of
incompetence, or they accepted them for ideological reasons. Either case is

Yours Sincerely,
Alan Howell
