HOW SHOULD a business respond to a highly compensated employee in a position of great responsibility engaging in seemingly irrational behavior that is causing great harm to the firm and its brands? And what if the company is in the news business, where reputation is everything? Of course, it depends on the circumstances, but one thing is certain: Doing nothing is not an option. Viacom, the parent of CBS-TV, cannot now do nothing about the deepening controversy over the use of apparently forged documents on "60 Minutes" and its evening news anchored by Dan Rather.

CBS News correspondent Robert C. Pierpoint - who covered six presidents, the Korean War, President Kennedy's assassination, and the Iranian hostage crisis - died Saturday in California, his daughter said. Mr. Pierpoint, 86, who retired in 1990, died of complications from surgery at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, Marta Pierpoint told the Associated Press. He had broken his hip Oct. 12 at the Santa Barbara Retirement Community where he lived with his wife, Patricia. After making his name covering the Korean War - a role he reprised when he provided his radio voice for the final episode of M*A*S*H in 1983 - Mr. Pierpoint became a White House correspondent during the Dwight D. Eisenhower administration, a position he would hold through the Jimmy Carter administration.

Walter Cronkite, 92, the television newsman once famously described as the most trusted man in America, died of cerebral vascular disease last night at his home in New York. The term anchorman was invented to describe Mr. Cronkite. As the anchor of the CBS Evening News from 1962 until 1981, he set a standard for accuracy, fairness, and dependability. His fame was worldwide: In Sweden, anchors are called "Cronkiters. " Mr. Cronkite's avuncular and authoritative baritone guided viewers through some of the most traumatic and spellbinding news events of the 20th century: the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and Robert F. Kennedy; the civil-rights struggles in the South; the tumultuous 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago; the first walk by a man on the moon in 1969; the Vietnam War; and the Watergate scandal.

ISSUE | VETERANS Charity lost its way I was pleased to learn that investigations of the Wounded Warrior Project by CBS News and the New York Times resulted in the firing of the organization's top two officials ("Wounded Warrior fires execs over spending accusations," Philly.com, Friday) Several months ago, when I received a gift blanket for making a donation, I noticed that it had been made in China. I wrote to the executive offices, suggesting that employing American veterans to make the blankets, rather than outsourcing, would be more in keeping with the organization's goals.

If "Truth" wants to elicit sympathy for the journalists it portrays, then it's honest to a fault. "Truth" tells the story behind the infamous "60 Minutes II" story on the National Guard service record of then-president George W. Bush, a 2004 piece that ran in the midst of his re-election campaign. The movie is drawn from the memoir of Mary Mapes (Cate Blanchett), the CBS News producer assigned to assemble a team (including Dennis Quaid, Topher Grace, Elisabeth Moss) to ferret out the story in Texas.

APPLE'S RELEASE of the Apple Watch and iPhone6 makes it clear that Silicon Valley's future will be directly tied to its ability to protect tech users' privacy. Securing Americans' personal information in an increasingly tech-dominated world has to be a higher priority for tech leaders and the valley's congressional and legislative delegations. Their failures up to now have left them, shall we say, exposed to the point of embarrassment. The confidence Apple executives expressed in their ability to protect customers' private information would be more believable if the whole world hadn't just seen nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence and other celebrities courtesy of hackers who broke into supposedly secure private Apple accounts.
