  CBS Television City
CBS (the Columbia Broadcasting System) was the premiere network at the dawn of the television age.
But you'll discover that most of the sitcoms broadcast on CBS (such as "Cybill") are taped at their CBS Studio Center in the Valley, or at other studios such as Warner Bros (where "Murphy Brown" is taped).
Their third studio (CBS Studio Center) is located in the San Fernando Valley, and is used for taping many of the TV sitcoms shown on all three networks.

 CNN.com - CBS can't vouch for Bush Guard memos - Sep 20, 2004
"CBS News cannot prove that the documents are authentic, which is the only acceptable journalistic standard to justify using them in the report," CBS News President Andrew Heyward said in a statement issued by the network.
Further, CBS said the documents showed Killian believed he was being pressured to "sugarcoat" the performance of Bush, whose father was then a congressman from Texas.
CBS broadcast the documents on the newsmagazine "60 Minutes" September 8, reporting that experts had vouched for their authenticity.

While CBS said it was not bowing to political pressure, critics said that was exactly the case, and worried about the effects of such pre-emptive strikes on future work.
CBS believed it had ordered a love story about Ronald and Nancy Reagan with politics as a backdrop, but instead got a film that crossed the line into advocacy, said a network executive who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
CBS said its decision to cancel the movie was "based solely on our reaction to seeing the final film, not the controversy that erupted around a draft of the script."

CBS did not "break" this Chicken-Hawk George story; it's just that Dan Rather, with Mapes' encouragement, found his journalistic soul and the cojones, finally, after 5 years delay, to report it.
So CBS inquisitors took this minor error and used it to discredit the story and ruin careers of reporters who allowed themselves an unguarded moment of courage.
CBS executives' model was clearly the hatchet job done on BBC news last year by the so-called "Hutton Report." In that case, some used-up lordship viciously attacked the BBC's ballsy uncovering of an official lie: that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.

CBS News also created the job of vice president for news practices -- in 1982, when an internal probe found violations of its standards over a Vietnam documentary that led to a lawsuit by retired Gen. William Westmoreland, which was settled without payment.

CBS to air new "anti-Clinton ad"?; Citizens United ad would apparently violate CBS's stated policy not to run "advocacy" ads on "controversial issues of public importance"
CBS says the sponsor, an online activist group called MoveOn.org, crossed the line by attempting to use Super Bowl airtime as a platform for public debate: something CBS and other networks have banned for years.
Durbin noted, "Maybe network executives at CBS are so afraid of political pressure from the rightwing and their business advertisers who are in league with the rightwing politics of America that they are afraid to put anything on the air that might in fact make things uncomfortable.
