The coverup was released...

CBS is calling it an investigation report though...
One Blogger nailed it in a comment,

This isn't an investigative report - it is a damage control report. Mapes and the execs at 60 Minutes were sacrificed to save CBS News president Heyward and Dan Rather. Rather got saved because he announced his retirement. Don't know how Heyward saved his skin.

Here is good roundup of reponses to the coverup.

Don't forget the connection between Mary Mapes and the Kerry Campaign.

Of course, Mr. Reynolds has something to say on the subject.
Captain Ed chimes in also.
Here's his money quote:
Because as long as Heyward still runs CBS News, it appears to me that the same thing could easily happen again, through incompetence if nothing else.
