Dan Rather Death Watch 2004: Now Serving Grilled Execs

Heads are dangerously close to rolling at CBS, it would seem, as former Attorney General Dick Thornburgh and assorted legal rottweilers have started interrogating CBS bigwigs regarding that memo thingie everyone's yapping about. Now, we know this is a big deal, but Daily News gossip ho Lloyd Grove can barely control himself:

Around 20 key people - everyone from CBS News President Andrew Heyward to top anchor Dan Rather - are expected to trek from the Broadcast Center on W. 57th St. and submit themselves to the tender mercies of the independent panel probing how "60 Minutes Wednesday" managed to use apparently faked documents in a controversial report about President Bush's National Guard service.

Emphasis obviously ours but, um, we're guessing Lloyd isn't wearing any pants right now.
