    Coverup was last straw in Moonves' ouster from CBS: report

    New York Times reports that he was being blackmailed and was trying to get his blackmailer a job at CBS.

    It's amazing how much trouble corporate titans can get into because of sex.

    True, we [lawyers] build no bridges. We raise no towers. We construct no engines. We paint no pictures - unless as amateurs for our own principal amusement. There is little of all that we do which the eye of man can see. But we smooth out difficulties; we relieve stress; we correct mistakes; we take up other men's burdens and by our efforts we make possible the peaceful life of men in a peaceful state.

    This seems like as good of a place to put it as any - mods feel free to move if you want - this is not meant to undermine sexual abuse allegations by the way:

    Sltrib: His sons say they lied about being sexually abused. Now a Utah father is asking a judge to find him factually innocent.

    I suppose what is fascinating to me are a few things:

    1. If the mother coerced her children to make this accusation it seems that she should be responsible. It seems like a deterrent for false accusations of this sort would be that if a person was found to have indeed purposely created false allegations, they should have to serve the same time (obviously not for children).
    2. Our legal system is interesting, in that I am sure he was encouraged to plead guilty to a lesser sentence, which has now muddied the waters quite a bit. But this seems pretty common.
    3. He was basically coerced into admitting guilt just so that he could complete his recovery therapy and get parole.
